Star Wars: The Approaching Storm by Alan Dean Foster

There are quite a bit of politics in this novel. For me, that is some of the most boring content. This is unfortunate the approaching storm star wars most of the political material is the direct link to Episode II, the biggest draw for me to "The Approaching Storm".

There's also not a large amount of action to offset it.

At the beginning of the novel, every character seems the approaching storm star wars feel the need to explain this political situation and why Ansion is important. This becomes repetitious after a while. While "The Approaching Storm" is a good Star Wars story, it's not the epic story I would have hoped for from a book leading into the next film.

I would have liked to have seen more about Count Dooku, Anakin's training, and his interaction with the other Jedi beyond Barriss Offee and Luminari Unduli. And why didn't Anakin go after his mother sooner that 10 years after Episode I?


Why didn't the Queen offer to pay Watto for freeing his mother? After all, her son singlehandedly saved Naboo. I would also have liked to have seen what Palpatine was up to between the novels. None of that is in this story as you might expect.


Like I said, Foster is good when adapting other peoples? He tends to get a little TOO into describing locales, creatures, and motivations, to the point where the book, while intriguing, seems somewhat unfocused and logged down with what I call?

I feel shaving a few pages of needless prose off this would have helped immensely. I also felt at times he got a little repetitive; having the Jedi repeatedly prove themselves to the various Alwari tribes got old quickly, as did having the Hutt crimelord Soerrg rage to his majordomo.


Did anyone else reading the character of Tooqui have the Ewok theme playing in their head? Tooqui seemed just a little too similar to Wicket circa the Ewok TV-movies for my liking.

But thankfully he wasn? I have to admit, it took me a while to read this book. At times, The approaching storm star wars just could not get into it.

The only real tie in to 'Attack of the Clones' is the planet Ansion which gets a mention in the filmand the growing political momentum of the Secession Movement. The Secession Movement is an the approaching storm star wars part of history in the Star Wars Universe, however, I was looking forward to more of an adventure on a galactic scale, between many planets, etc I hope that this type of story will be written in future film bridge novels.

Although it had some many good qualities, The Approaching Storm just didn?
