Title: The Followers
(Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice: Special Edition #2)
Author: Jude Watson
Genre: Young Readers
Anna’s Rating: 3/5
I’m not sure what to say: it wasn’t a particularly memorable book, though it was a fine read. I was so psyched up for the expensive a harder-to-fine Special Editions that I was really hoping for a bit more.
The story itself is a good idea: a professor who delves deep into a topic (the Sith) and gets carried away with it, leading to his undoing. But I don’t know what it is…the Obi-wan/Anakin halves of these books are just less compelling…less exciting…less endearing. It’s all about the angst both Obi-wan and Anakin feel in their Master/Padawan relationship, without those heartening or inspiring moments we saw throughout the series in the tales of Obi-wan and Qui-gon.
“We cannot control how we feel. Only how we choose to handle our feelings.”
