    Indeed a very GOOD novel about EVIL FINALLY A BOOK ABOUT A VILLAIN DONE AS IT SHOULD BE Then evil will have to do. Sometimes is odd the development of books where the villain is the main character since not matter that he she is the main character and very likely the very reason of why the readers chose to read the novel, still, the narrative tend to point out how incorrect is to support evil, stating how awful they are, and even sometimes they even lose at the end.Don t get me wrong, it s no Indeed a very GOOD novel about EVIL FINALLY A BOOK ABOUT A VILLAIN DONE AS IT SHOULD BE Then evil will have to do.

    It was a bit daunting to read a Star Wars book since it had been years since I read one and even though I still love Star Wars I just don t watch the movie that often nowadays as I did when I was younger Also, this book is about Tarkin, a character I never really cared about in the movie But Darth Vader was on the cover also so that made this book seem a bit interesting to read.But, I must say I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading the book It s a really, really good Yes, i It was a bit daunting to read a Star Wars book since it had been years since I read one and even though I still love Star Wars I just don t watch the movie that often nowadays as I did when I was younger Also, this book is about Tarkin, a character I never really cared about in the movie But Darth Vader was on the cover also so that made this book seem a bit interesting to read.But, I must say I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading the book It s a really, really good Yes, it had some part that was a bit tough to get through, space fighting isn t my favorite reading material, I prefer watching it on the telly On the plus side, it was well written, not too much and it was necessary for the story In this book we get the background story to Moff Tarkin, his childhood on Eriadu, his career to present time in the book when he is in charge ...

    My first foray into the post EU era reboot of the Star Wars novel series Since this is official canon now, it s eveninteresting to get a look into the backstory of Grand Moff Tarkin.Overall, the story is pretty basic Nothing special, other than that it s Star Wars There s not a lot of adventure, though there are some battle scenes The big draw here is the character development of Tarkin himself, the Big Bad of the very first movie This was Star Wars when it was simply Star Wars The My first foray into the post EU era reboot of the Star Wars novel series Since this is official canon now, it s eveninteresting to get a look into the backstory of Grand Moff Tarkin.Overall, the story is pretty basic Nothing special, other than that it s Star Wars There s not a lot of adventure, though there are some battle scenes The big draw here is the character development of Tarkin himself, the Big Bad of the very first movie This was Star Wars when it was simply Star Wars There was no New Hope, no Jar Jar Binks, and no Ewoks There was one movie, and Disney did not own it It was so cool to see Peter Cushing as this villain, as anyone watching movies in that era knew him from horror movies.My favorite part of this book was seeing the relationship between Tarkin and the other Big Bad Villains, Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine We get to see the dynamic between them, most notably that between Tarkin and Vader For years I wasn t sure the pecking order of the Emperors top two minion henchm...
