We've been talking and talking about the toys, but the books are good too! So this thread is for discussing any of the SW books (non-Expanded Universe, please), as well as give us alerts when and where books are available. Well, I've FINALLY gotten hold of the AOTC novel (I couldn't resist Hayden's pic on the cover, plus the little nagging voice in my head screaming "First Edition Hardbound Copy!" LOL.). Thanks to listmember Nicee for the intelligence report about where to get a copy. I'll make it as a bounty hunter yet. Heheh. I must've travelled from Makati to Quezon Avenue in record time just to get the last copy! (My brother dreams of joining Formula 1, so... LOL) Only to find out there are 10 sitting right there on the shelves of National Bookstore in Megamall. LOL. But that's the thrills and risks and downsides of the chase for you! Anyhoo, I'm in the chapter narrating the chase through Coruscant (I'm slow, cause I lug the book along when I go to the office, I only read on the bus. This morning, I felt like I was riding in the speeder with Anakin and Obi-Wan, and... okay! okay! I'll continue). Let me tell you, R.A. Salvatore did one heck of a fantastic job with this thing! Wow! You can actually visualize the whole thing just by reading. And I finally got what I asked for: more glimpses of the Obi-Anakin-Master-Padawan relationship. They bicker a lot here! Heheh. Plus, I got more insights in the earlier chapters regarding Shmi, Beru, Owen and Cliegg, as well as Anakin and his thoughts about his mother and Padme and Obi-Wan, Padme and her thoughts about politics and the Republic, plus more on Padme and her family. It's all cool, so if you get the chance, read the book. I now look forward to knowing more about Dooku. Now that I've got that, my next quest would be to hunt down the AOTC Visual Dictionary. If anyone finds it, please holler! The Art of Ep2 has been spotted in several bookstores also. Does anyone know in which book they discussed how the Jedi go about creating their lightsabers?
