One of the most amazing Star Wars novels EVER. Best character development on the planet! ( )
  Ambie-Wan | Jan 9, 2021 |
3 1/2 stars: Good

No need to state the synopsis here, as we know the story. This is the official movie novelization. As my favorite movie of the prequel trilogy, this book did an even better job of explaining to us the inner workings of the Jedi, how they failed Anakin, and why he turned to the dark side. A good job, particularly to enhance his character from "whiny teen" to a deeply conflicted person who was failed by those who loved him, in their own blindness to see that we require connections to make life worth living.

A few quotes I liked:

"Because his real fear, in a universe where even stars die, is that being the best will never be quite good enough.

"I think" Obi-Wan said carefully "that abstractions like 'peace' don't mean much to him. He's loyal to 'people', not to principles. And he expects loyalty in return. He will stop at nothing to save me, for example, because he thinks I would do the same for him. [ discussing the Palpatine spying task, with Yoda and Mace} .... "I am firmly convinced Anakin can do anything, except betray a friend. That's why I don't think he will ever trust us again."

Order 66 is the climax of the Clone Wars... What is happening right now is why the Clone Wars were fought in the first place. It is their reason for existence. The Clone Wars have always been, in and of themselves, from their very inception, the Revenge of the Sith.

He lifted his head and the stick angled to poke Obi-Wan in the shin. "Especially the darkness in ourselves, young one. Of the dark side, despair is."
The simple truth of this called to him. Even despair is attachment: it is a grip clenched upon pain. Slowly, very slowly, Obi-Wan remembered what it was to be a Jedi. ( )

Obviously you could take any substandard movie and write in each character's internal monologue until their actions made sense. But to see this treatment on such a famous trilogy is rare, and these books really do redeem the films in my mind, even if they had little to do with Lucas' vision. Anakin's betrayal makes more sense. Padme is given more of a role in the story. Obi-wan is still awesome. Fleshing out this story really does create an entirely new one. Rewatching the films after reading the novel makes the entire experience a little more enjoyable. ( )

This probably the best Star Wars book ever written, but more than that, it's just a damn good book period. If Lucas's film was anything like this, it would have been up for an Oscar.

The only places the book suffers, are the area's where Stover can't escape Lucas's storytelling. Why are the Jedi and Anakin so stupid and blind when it came to Palpatine? He couldn't have been more obvious if he'd gone around with a bell on. And I refuse to believe that the Jedi's stupid and unrealistic "let it go" in response to all grief hasn't fucked them over in the past. Stover removes most of the terrible dialogue, but he does include Obi-Wan's hypercritical "Jedi don't deal in absolutes", which made as much sense here as it did in the film. Stover also includes Obi-Wan's rant to Anakin once he's been defeated, but it doesn't quite mesh with the calm Stover described Obi-Was as feeling.

But seriously, if you're a Star Wars fan you should read this book. If you're a sci-fantasy fan you only has a passing knowledge of Star Wars you should read this book. This is an amazing book. ( )

Whoo this book is a WILD RIDE y'all. It has a very specific tone which took me back a little bit, but it works so well throughout and just like drives it home again and again. It was rough sometimes to read--not because it was bad but in fact because it was too good and Anakin's journey was so rough to follow emotionally. But I really cannot recommend it highly enough if you like Star Wars; it's really an incredible telling of a movie I know many people didn't like, and I think the insights in it really make so much more of it fall into place.

Revenge of the Sith is a rare gem among movie novelizations: one which not only tells the story and expands on it, can not only be appreciated without seeing the movie, but is better than the movie. Even if you hated Episode III, you should read the novelization. It just might restore your faith in the Prequel Trilogy.
