A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

Nobi-Wan Kenobi

Kenobi - John Jackson Miller

This book was bad in so many ways.  First, the plot was ludicrous, so full of holes.  I know, it's Star Wars and SW is notorious for bad plots, having only 2 out of the 6 movies worth watching.  Second, "Ben" Kenobi doesn't use a lightsaber until the last 30 pages.  A Jedi novel?  Despite trying to keep a no-profile on Tatooine he ends up in the middle of so much farce he might as well have used his lightsaber from the first pages (although he wasn't much in the first 100).  Finally the writing is just awful, worse than a YA novel, totally dumbed down.

 

I might have given this three stars if I was 11 years old.
