Publisher's Summary

In barren desert lands and seedy spaceports...in vast underwater cities and in the blackest depths of space...unfolds a tale of good and evil, of myth and magic, of innocence and power. At last the saga that captures the imagination of millions turns back in time to reveal its cloaked origins, the start of a legend, the story of Star Wars. Based on the screenplay by George Lucas, this novel by master storyteller Terry Brooks probes the depths of one of the greatest tales of our time, providing rich detail and insight into the minds and motives of the characters and shedding bold new light on Lucas' brilliant creation.

Better than the movie

Much like with Episode II, Lucas trimmed down a LOT of the story for "pacing" reasons when he made the final cut of Episode I. Unfortunately, those things would have added quite a bit to the story. In addition, Lucas has many movie-making skills, but writing dialogue and directing are NOT two of them.

Fortunately, all three of those issues are fixed in the novelizations for Episodes I and II. If you're interested in Star Wars enough to even be reading this review right now, you'll probably enjoy the book. It was much better than the movie, and there's quite a bit of content that didn't exist in the film.

Great Story. Action, suspense, and humor.

My family loves this series. We started out with the original Star Wars trilogy in audio which is great also.
After having heard the narrator read several westerns and Huckleberry Finn it took a little bit to accept his voice for sic-fi but he does a great job.
Some have complained about the sound effects. My family thinks they were great.
These stories are clean and kid friendly.
