    Amazing start

    This was the start of an amazing 18 books of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi as Master and Apprentice and this has to be one of the best series of any star wars books ever.

    A reviewer

    I liked it because it was interesting. It was interesting how they used the Force. I learned that Arconans eat Dactyl. It was fascinating because Obi Wan slashed hundreds of Draigons without being hit once! That¿s why I like it.

    This is one of the greatest starwars books!!!!!

    This is an awesome book, i couldn't stop reading. It was sort of boring at first but then it got tense and you should also read the second book, it's even better.

    Great Book and series

    This was a great book and series, it's about and hour to two hour read but is great. If you want to know everything about the Star Wars universe than you have to read these. Don't let the size fool you just get all at once to read.

    This book will draw you into the pages and you will be lost in exteme exitment

    The problem is that Obi-wan-kenobi is trying to become a pawdewan learner but his only chance Qui-go-gin a ,jedi master will not exept him as his pawdewan. Obi-wan is a young boy who was raised in the jedi temple. Qui-gon-jinn is a very expiereinced jedi master. The main seting is on a ship on it's way to a plant called bandomeer the sulotion is that qui-gon watches obi-wan fight and exepts him as a pawdewan learner.

    The Best Books Ever

    These books were the first Star Wars books that I read. They are very well written and have a very interesting plot. I would reccomend this book and its other 19 in the series to anyone who is a Star Wars fan or a Science Fiction fan. These books still hold vivid memmories even after 4 years.

    It stunk

    Star wars jedi aprentis is a very bad book. It's about a boy named Obi-Wan who is an apprentis at the jedi temple and later a padawan under Qui- Gon Jin. The only group of people I'd recomend this book to are huge star wars fans.

    A Good Book, But Not The Best In The Seires

    Hi, I think that this is one of the best books i the seires, but it wasn't as good as the Hidden Past, which I really liked, you have to understand who the people are really, or it would get a bit confusing.

    JEDI APPRENTICE RULES!!!!

    Hello. I assume you like Jedi Apprentice if you are reading this. I thought the book was a great starter for the series--I got it from my Grandmother for my birthday thinking 'Star Wars Books? Why would I ever read that?' Well, I read it, and was hooked. I read the second one, and before I knew it every time I got a book order from school a Jedi Apprentice book would be the first on the list. If you haven't already, READ THIS BOOK!!!!

    Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice #1: The Rising Force

    This book is sooo good! I recommend it to Star Wars and non-Star Wars fans alike! My favorite thing about this book is how it describes how Obi-Wan uses the Force and what it feels like to use the Force. New species and alien races are introduced along a great storyline that fits in well with the entire Star Wars saga, it gets more exciting with every page! Also, it's very easy to read and understand, I recommend it to the young and old. Now, buy this book...NOW!!!

    HEY BANT!!!!!

    I agree with you. These books do start a wild ride. I have to admit that I actally read #3 first. I never knew abuot this series intill I saw book #3 on the shelves of wal-mart. So I picked it up and read it. It was an awsome book.(Book #3 is my all time favorite out of all of them) So then I tried to get Book #1. (It may of been easier to run around the entire world) I didn't get it intill Book #5 was almost out. So instead I read #2 next, then #4, Then #1, Then 5-12 in the right order. So it was a little bit crazier for me. This is one of the best series I have ever read. WAAAAAAY TOOOOOO GOOOOOO DAVE and JUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Rising Force

    Simply, this book is magnificent. I love the way that it looks back on Obi-Wans past and details what he was like when he was young. Some of the other things that interest me are: the variety of characters, constant fighting with the light sabers, and the plot of the story. But when all is said and done, GO GET THIS BOOK!
