    Being as we have series threads, but not there are some single books which stand out and I doubt we'll get a 'Clone Wars Fan Club' anytime soon (*laughs*), I thought this would be appropriate.

    I love this Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, and my fondest memory is actually watching my wife read it as her first Star Wars novel. It remains her favourite Yoda interpretation and she has asked about Scout ever since!

    Hey, if there was a Clone Wars multimedia project Fan Club there shouldn't be a problem for me, and I haven't even read it yet, but it is more believable to me than anything TCW could come up with.

    I've read this. It's great fun. Yoda is at times either hilarious or wise beyond even his years.

    Absolute favorite sequence is Yoda disguised as an R2 unit. My god, the hilarity! [face_rofl] Stewart has a lot of great humor in this book.

    One of my favorite parts was when Yoda was arguing with the droid about his lunch. The droid was trying to take it but Yoda told it his food wasn't on the menu and kept hitting it (I think on the last part).

    I also liked when Dooku was telling Yoda of the Dark Side and all Yoda wanted was a rose. A Rose! That was great.

    Honestly my favorite parts were those of Yoda and Dooku.

    Please do, there is no other book quite like it in the SW universe.

    Very good indeed! My favourite bits were the actor having to do a Yoda impression for real and Scout's innovative approach to combat!

    I wouldn't say it's my favorite book of the era but I had fun reading it. For me, the positives and negatives balanced out well enough to consider myself a fan. [face_pumpkin]

    This book rocks! Yoda disguised as the R2 unit was hilarious beyond almost anything in any other Star Wars book–except the X-Wing books. Those were comedy gold.

    I will. Just have the first chapter down so far. ;)



    I've had one for years. Just now getting to it. They're still pretty easy to find. Sorry. :(


    Yeah, I was just looking through old pages and found it. It was a great idea to make one like this. I think it's a very unique book.

    I'd just have to order it in, and I'm a bit strapped for cash at the moment.

    Yoda and the droid in the mess hall. [face_laugh] Hilarious.

    I'm a big fan of Scout already. Very cunning.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about Whie too. Enjoying it very much so far.

    This is, hands down and without question, the best book the Star Wars EU has to offer. Love it, love it, love it.
