I have read many great Star Wars novels and I have also read or not finished quite a few bad ones as well. The last Star Wars novel that I didn't finish was Crucible. I couldn't make it past page 120. It bored me to death! I have been eagerly anticipating Kenobi for some time, but like many of you I am going to wait a bit before I drop $27 on the hardcover. There is so much potential with this novel though! I highly recommend picking up Star Wars the Essential Reader's Companion for anybody who wants an easy to read, overview of all Star Wars novels up through X-Wing Mercy Kill. If you are new to Star Wars novels the Readers Companion will get you caught up and you can choose from hundreds of great novels and stories to read...I am so tempted by the Dark Side to buy Kenobi today! Those of you that have read or are currently reading Kenobi, please let us know your opinion so far. Please no big spoilers, but some general info on the storyline would be great!
