Don't waste your time

To be perfectly honest, this is the worst book or audiobook I've read or listened to since Alan Dean Foster's THE APPROACHING STORM.The Author , Karen Miller takes many liberties with the characters , including Obi-wan, Bail Organa, And Padme. For example, Everyone knows that in Episode 2, Attack of the Clones, Obi-wan goes into the nightclub, and Has a drink, But in this story, Obi-wan refuses to drink, because, "Jedi do not drink". Also, Bail Organa and Obi-wan Kenobi's constant bickering is so out of character for both that I just could not listen to the book for more then 15 minuted at a time. The implied love affair between Padme and Organa was just too much for me. There are many other examples that make this story not fit into in Universe and Expanded Universe storylines. I enjoy Karen Travis's handling of the Clone Wars Series, But I am concerned that with Mrs. Miller Storytelling, The series will be a flop. I sure hope she is not writing for the cartoon series. If' I were you, I wouldn't waste my time listening to this book.

Not an action book but something else/more

Okay - this isn't an action packed book. There are some great sequences at the start but this book is really something else/more. It fills in the gaps of the relationship between Bail Organa and Obi Wan - we knew there had to be a link from Episode IV but it has never really been explained. The author does have her own perculiar style of writing and is long winded in a couple of areas but the story is building the relationship and backstory to episode III and beyond and so needs the indepth discussions that happen between characters.
Again I really applaud the publisher for releasing this book unabridged - keep them coming unabridged!
