    Does anyone know who exactly Corran is addressing in the first-person in I, Jedi? I hadn't really given it much thought until I read Shatterpoint and Mace kept shifting into the first-person for historical recordings. I thought that might make sense, but I'm re-reading I, Jedi now and that doesn't really fit (i.e future generations probably wouldn't care too much that he almost got freaky with Tavira). So is it kinda like Corran's memoirs then? Or is it some weird recording of Corran's stream of consciousness? I'm just curious because it's the only Star Wars book that would appear the same to us as it would to a Star Wars universe person.

    The book is just a first-person perspective, like Corran's speaking directly to us.

    I know it's wierd as most SW books are third person but it give such insight into his mind

    so there is this little red guy on his right shoulder, and a little white guy in a dress on his left. He's talking to them. :p

    But seriously, i have no idea! ;)

    first person, like he's talking to us.


    or you could see it as a journal entry. Corran's Log, if you will :p

    If he's just talking to himself, then why does he make jokes? Who's he trying to impress?

    Now that I think about it it's probably his son... when he's older of course :p Or his memoirs since the whole 'loins' thing doesn't seem like something he'd tell his son.

    If it does turn out to be his memoirs or something, I hope he would wait a bit before showing it to his children. Otherwise it would be a really awkward bedtime story.

    I meant when his son is in his twenties. :p Or mid-late teens at the earliest :p He'd let his daughter pick up the book :p

    First, third person narration . . . what is 2nd person? [face_thinking]

    Second person is "You dropped to the ground." It's somebody tell you what you did. Hard style to write. And Wes, you're never funny.

    think of 2nd person as a D&D Dungeon Master telling you what yourcharacter is doing at some point in the story. (I assume that's how it works, I've never stooped to the level of paper RPGs) :p
