    Is an eye an extremity? [face_thinking]

    Somehow Palpatine is becoming quite the Dismembered God of the GFFA, what with his hands and eyes and stuff popping up all over the galaxy after his death...

    Give them a few more years and some Imperial fanatics will prop up his various remains on a golden throne and pray to when seeking guidance. :D

    Luke goes on an adventure that can only be described as an awkward combination of the creepy robotic romance of Battlestar Galactica with the "science" of The Matrix.

    I don't have a summary to add, but I do want to say that the next published edition of CotJ needs an accolades-style couple of pages at the beginning compiling all these statements. Sort of a "Here's what people have been saying about CotJ...!" deal.

    That needs to be in every SW book's reprint. Including Bib Fortuna and the Rise of the Dark Falls.

    Bib Fortuna and the Rise of the Dark Falls could be a book of such quotes. :p

    It would be the longest Star Wars novel in history.

    I was watching ROTJ with some friends who are generally uninitiated in such things, and when Bib Fortuna showed up and people remarked that he was the ugliest Twi'lek they'd ever seen, I said "ah, but he was a great political theorist!"

    Great perhaps, but Some Sort of Viper was better. And uglier.

    Even if I was holding a copy in my hands, "I am confirmed that this book DOES exist!" still wouldn't be believable.

    Durga learns the hard way that it's not the size of your saber that counts, it's how you use it.

    Hilariously terrible revenge of the superweapon, the Wampa King and the Daala.

    Daala proves once and for all that she really does indeed fail at being anything more than a glorified model, plus she gasses the warlords like the Master in Doctor Who while Durga looses his saber because Bevel Lemelisk designed it, oh, and Luke was nearly savaged from the wampa he wounded years ago while on a creepy date with an octogenarian

    Durga tries to find Pre Vizla's Darksaber, but fails, deciding to create his own super sixed version, which too fails -- Anderson also fails at storywriting.

    A Hutt crimelord deploys the, what, seventh superweapon in two years, Daala conducts negotiations both aggressive and short, and Luke encouters an old foe from Episode V.

    You know, I never ever found myself wondering what a Hutt beauty spa would look like but after reading this novel I know exactly what it looks like and the mental scar will never heal -- thanks KJA!!

    Second entry: Pellaeon retreats from battle yet again, but I might be able to forgive him for it this time because he was sort of pushed into it...

    All the incompetent prose, idiotic characterization, awful plotting, and tired cliches you hated about JAT, now with all new terrible ideas from COTJ!

    Crix Madine is needlessly killed trying to destroy yet another Death Star variant, that ended up destroying itself.

    In a race to see which antagonist could be the most woefully incompetent, Durga the Hutt builds a superweapon that blows up on itself while Dalaa pits an entire Imperial fleet against a handful of jedi trainees and somehow manages to lose.
