    I, Jedi is a strange beast It s long, twice as long as it should be, since it includes two full story arcs The baffling part is that the first arc is a bizarre retelling of the events of KJA s Jedi Academy Trilogy, told from the perspective of a character who didn t appear at all in the original story I can t honestly fathom what made the editors, or even the author, think that overlap was a good idea Corran is a mega hero Gary Stu on par with Luke, and so in this telling, he is responsible I, Jedi is a strange beast It s long, twice as long as it should be, since it includes two full story arcs The baffling part is that the first arc is a bizarre retelling of the events of KJA s Jedi Academy Trilogy, told from the perspective of a character who didn t appear at all in the original story I can t honestly fathom what made the editors, or even the author, think that overlap was a good idea Corran is a mega hero Gary Stu on par with Luke, and so in this telling, he is responsible for unraveling the mystery at the Academy and defeating Exar Kun All of his main sequences take place away from the main cast, out in the jungle It s the sort of thing you d have in a video game, and it seems super bizarre in a book I gather the Jedi Academy arc is there to fill out his trinity as a detective, fighter pilot, and Jedi The whole book is a first person exegesis of his character development, trying to come to grips with the absurd set of backgrounds and abilities Stackpole burdened him with, without the aid of a personality or friends or even his wife, who is absurdly and unjustly put in the fridge for the entire fucking book.Speaking of which, it s worth reflecting on the fact that the entire 600 page novel takes place between Mirax s disappearance and rescue He spends months training as a Jedi and defeating Exar Kun, then goes and infiltrates a pirate organization from the ground up, working his way up the ranks, proving his skill, defeating rivals, earning favor from higher ups, and wooing the sexy Imperial pirate warlord It seems like it takes Corran a literal year to rescue Mirax It needs to be dragged out so that Stackpole can hammer home all these facets of Corran s boring personality and skillset, I guess It s such a silly thing Corran occasionally seems to realize that his actions are under the sway of an arbitrary plot device, and comments on the bizarreness of his behavior So Mirax exists to develop Corran s character That s not a super great trope in general manic pixy dream girl, etc but what makes it vastly worse here is that Mirax doesn t even get to speak for herself She develops Corran simply by being a piece of valuable property that was stolen from him The entire book is just a bunch of situations contrived to make Corran have some tepid moral and self knowledge realization, each one justified as a step towards getting Mirax back Stackpole takes Obi wan s true from a certain point of view and makes it into a founding element of Luke s Jedi philosophy It s ironic, because Obi wan just uses it to cover his ass when Luke confronts him by throwing up a philosophical smokescreen Stackpole, and therefore Luke and Corran, seem totally baffled by what relativist epistemology might actually mean, so they use it to understand how something that appears to conflict with their ideology might actually really make sense to them This contributes to the broader effort they make to police their strict ideology, confronting and firmly answering questions and doubts about such complicated issues as the temptations of the dark side and the complications of on the fly decision making in high stakes, violent situations Happily, they are always able to conclude that the deaths and collateral damage they incur are morally justifiable In another of the annoying movie references Stackpole seems so fond of, Luke literally advances the idea that giving enemies a chance to surrender as he did to Jabba removes the stain of sin from their subsequent murder, in any context Other characters become theological case studies for Luke and Corran to debate Kyp is Saved because he confessed and repented of his sins Corran doesn t believe the Force is that forgiving, but Luke thinks that any sins can t be washed clean in the light side The Jensaarai are responsible for many innocent deaths because they aided Tavira s forces, but they aren t evil because they had good intentions The worst bit comes when Corran is forced to consider whether it would be okay to have sex with Tavira to rescue his wife He goes through a tortuous crisis of faith for like a page, an internal monologue that concludes the ends don t justify the means though they have in several other cases throughout the book , and that if he just has faith, the Plot will provide another, perhapsdifficult but ultimatelyrighteous, path to victory I am inclined to think Tavira s character is almost worse than Mirax Tavira is an absurd caricature, an incarnation of the capricious, lascivious temptress trope who exists only to create this moment of crisis for Corran Rather than creating a decent personality and dialogue for her, Stackpole simply feeds her cliches and lampshades them at the end There are only a few modestly redeeming parts of Stackpole s writing It isn t offensively bad on a sentence to sentence level, and his descriptions of space dogfighting are better than most achieve, though they still aren t really interesting per se Corran is as boring as they come, and we stay inside his mind the entire 600 page book, with only a few moments of actual interaction with other characters It s nice to have someone call Luke s opinions into question, but Stackpole rolls this into Corran s general badassery and it just sounds like author mouthpiecing But Stackpole doesn t have a head for philosophy, unlike Stover, so he really doesn t deserve a mouthpiece He has nothing of interest to say If Corran weren t Gary Stu enough already, Stackpole has him resolve the modestly tense situation at the climax by simply reaching out across space to plant images in Tavira s mind that make her run away Corran is truly deeply in touch with the Plot Anyway, I, Jedi is literally 600 pages of internal monologue following Corran through a series of plot devices contrived to achieve a tepid, Christian archetype character arc And half of it is literally a retelling of three previously published books Who let this go to print

    Okay, so yes, I m in love with Corran Horn My husband doesn t mind because even if Corran really existed, he knows Mirax would kick my butt if I made a move on him I also am a fan of this book because it summarizes the events of the Jedi Academy Trilogy groan and puts them in a better andsensible light hooray The only good thing about the JAT, in my opinion, was The Little Lost Bantha Cub which rocks Not the best thing to read just entering the SWEU, maybe read the original Okay, so yes, I m in love with Corran Horn My husband doesn t mind because even if Corran really existed, he knows Mirax would kick my butt if I made a move on him I also am a fan of this book because it summarizes the events of the Jedi Academy Trilogy groan and puts them in a better andsensible light hooray The only good thing about the JAT, in my opinion, was The Little Lost Bantha Cub which rocks Not the best thing to read just entering the SWEU, maybe read the original three Zahn books first, then the X wing books, THEN you ll be ready for this one.But yay for a whole book about Corran D


  3. says:

    Yeah, we get it, Corran Horn is kickass But this is blatant sue ing of an already sue character Also, the retconning of the Jedi Academy Trilogy is distasteful and very badly done But it does some neat things, so I wouldn t skip it.

    This was my FIRST EVER buddy read with one of my best friends the wonderful and amazing David Green I realized who I was I saw my reflection in the mirror and heard the wind call to me I had, since before I could remember remembering, always held as the highest possible ideal a commitment to serving others My job was to provide others shelter and shade, to be a fortress against all the cruelty and wantonness out there Selflessness is the only antidote to evil It provides the light that d This was my FIRST EVER buddy read with one of my best friends the wonderful and amazing David Green I realized who I was I saw my reflection in the mirror and heard the wind call to me I had, since before I could remember remembering, always held as the highest possible ideal a commitment to serving others My job was to provide others shelter and shade, to be a fortress against all the cruelty and wantonness out there Selflessness is the only antidote to evil It provides the light that destroys the darkThis book takes place in the Star Wars extended Universe, after the Jedi Academy trilogy and features X Wing pilot Corran Horn as he searches for his beloved kidnapped wife and taps into his past and the deepest reaches of his heart as he discovers who he is and what it means to be a Jedi of the New Republic He faces many challenges and hardships as he begins his journey at Luke Skywalker s newly established academy only to become quite frustrated with the way that Luke teaches Thinking he could advance faster on his own, Corran leaves the Academy and strikes out on his own in a desperate attempt to recover his wife But in addition to space pirates and other obstacles Corran must also attempt to stay away from the dark side of the Force.This book was fantastic on many levels, but also felt lacking on some levels as well While I loved the middle and the end, there were some parts in the middle that seemed to drag a little It almost felt like this book could have been split into a duology rather than being one whole book There were also aspects of Corran s personality that irked me at times, mostly when he disagreed with Luke about how the academy was run and treated him almost condescendingly because of it I mean, sure, there were some aspects of Luke s teaching methods that I may have done differently but give Skywalker a break It s his first time in this type of role and Corran didn t really have any right to correct Luke about it Also, he is his Master in regards to teaching and to me that means that he commands a level of respect that Corran just did not give him I am really big on the relationship between student and teacher when it comes to Jedi training so this bothered me The other aspect of Corran that really irked me was when towards the end of the book he was seriously considering sleeping with the pirate queen Tavira Really The whole book is about how much he loves his wife and wants to find her and then he gets his man bits in a knot because he wants to bang Tavira And although he thinks that it would help his cause and help him get another step closer to recovering his wife, he also explicitly thinks that it is also because he just wants to get jiggy with it with this hot pirate O__O Now don t get me wrong, I think infidelity can be romantic and hot if done in the right way one of my favorite romance books after all is The Bridges of Madison County for chrissakes but in this instance all it made me feel was that Corran was a bit of a hypocrite.But Aside from those little things I absolutely loved this book immensely The action scenes were unique and very intense and kept me on the edge of my seat There were also lots of ship battles in space which is something I always love to see in Star Wars books I loved seeing some of my favorite characters return and play their part in this story, like Luke, Leia, Han, Wedge, and OF COURSE Mara Jade s appearances which were some of my favorite moments in the book I loved the parts that took place at the Jedi Academy and thought it was just so fascinating to see the students grasp their knowledge of the Force and become respectable knights And it was great to see Corran s transformation from kind of an impatient rogue to a Jedi with patience, humility, and compassion The writing style was really great as well I have never read anything by Michael Stackpole before and I found his style to be descriptive as well as engaging Overall, I really enjoyed this book and hope to seeof Corran and also the Jedi Academy in the future

    It s hard, as Stackpole attempted, to take a previously told tale that of the early days of Luke s Jedi Academy and tell it from a different point of view as part of a different story Foremost, it doesn t work if readers haven t read the previous work SW fans have read Kevin Anderson s Jedi Academy trilogy or the first half of this book makes little sense Secondly, the narrative lacks the punch of the first story as our hero is repeatedly absent or passive during critical events of the orig It s hard, as Stackpole attempted, to take a previously told tale that of the early days of Luke s Jedi Academy and tell it from a different point of view as part of a different story Foremost, it doesn t work if readers haven t read the previous work SW fans have read Kevin Anderson s Jedi Academy trilogy or the first half of this book makes little sense Secondly, the narrative lacks the punch of the first story as our hero is repeatedly absent or passive during critical events of the original story.Fortunately, our protagonist eventually goes off on his own and his adventure unfoldsconventionally, especially for an SW book.It s a good story, but it s just to easy too predictable Stackpole does a decent job, but the result is still pretty lame

    If you cannot recognize the man in the mirror, it is time to step back and see when you stopped being yourself The only first person view in the Star Wars world to date, I am rereading this one for a Star Wars book of the month club.About two years after the Thrawn Incident, Corran Horn is still in the Rogue Squadron when he senses that his wife, Mirax Terrick, is gone Knowing he has Jedi powers, Luke Skywalker convinces Corran that the best way to find her is to cultivate this nascent talent If you cannot recognize the man in the mirror, it is time to step back and see when you stopped being yourself The only first person view in the Star Wars world to date, I am rereading this one for a Star Wars book of the month club.About two years after the Thrawn Incident, Corran Horn is still in the Rogue Squadron when he senses that his wife, Mirax Terrick, is gone Knowing he has Jedi powers, Luke Skywalker convinces Corran that the best way to find her is to cultivate this nascent talent Corran proceeds to Yavin 4 to train as a Jedi, and Stackpole gives us a first person view of the Jedi Search Star Wars The Jedi Academy Trilogy, Vol 1 But after Exar Kun s demise, Corran realizes the way of the Jedi won t save his wife, so he leaves to find Mirax by infiltrating the Invids It is there that he realizes he can t save her unless he knows who he is.What I Liked Michael Stackpole of X Wing fame is a very good writer, particularly strong when detailing fight scenes or dogfights and riotous humor my gosh, between the one liners and the scenes, such as Corran being naked in the street, I wanted to die with laughter And this book has a lot of these, especially in the latter half While a lot of it goes over my head I am one of those who tries to see the movements, so I get a little lost , it is clear that Stackpole spent a lot of time figuring out the maneuvers, visualizing it in his head and planning it carefully His attention to detail helps make these partsreal and intense and are much better than the alternative And Corran fought a tough battle.Another great part of I, Jedi is that for the first time the reader can step into the narrator, in this case Corran Horn, seeing what he sees, feeling what he feels, and contemplating what he contemplates Being able to see Corran in this intimate portrayal brings us closer to Corran and, I think, really helps us understand what is going on in his head at any point of time We can spendtime on Corran s thoughts, discoveries, and opinions without having to have large chunks of text devoted to Corran speaking with other characters and revealing his thoughts And the reader gets the opportunity to become Corran, to relive the Jedi training, the dog fights, the careful scheming, and the deliberate planning This in turn gives us a better picture of who Corran is, what kind of Jedi he will become if any at all , what is important to him, and what he values.Another beautiful thing about the book is the end message to constantly examine ourselves and see who we are thus the title of this review Corran has to determine one important thing in order to save his wife was he a Jedi, a CorSec agent, a pilot or somethingLikewise, we too need to examine who we are and be that person, instead of trying to be someone else.Lastly, the Jedi Academy Trilogy written by Kevin J Anderson has frequently been considered a weak trilogy As it has been over ten years since I last read it and when I did, I was but a teenager , I don t have much of an opinion of it But I will say this the story Stackpole has weaved intertwines perfectly with the events from Anderson s From Corran s arrival to Gantoris death, to Mara Jade s brief stay, to the antics of Exar Kun, Stackpole deftly details Anderson s story from Corran s point of view, clarifying things, but never stepping on his toes.What I Did Not Like Unlike when I was a teenager, I found several things in I, Jedi that aggravated or annoyed me, starting with the villain, Leonia Tavira Besides some, what I consider, obvious Mary Sue attributes youngest Moff in the Empire, cunning, clever, diabolical, attractive no, sexy violet eyes, petite, etc , I found it challenging to believe she was dangerous The reader is beaten over the head with a hydrospanner about how clever and tough she is along with her extreme youth and incredible sex appeal with very little showing of her cleverness or toughness While her appearance in the second half of the book does show her as much tougher, I still could never believe that she was that formidable or that there was ever a doubt who would win though the latter does come from the fact I know what happens after the events of I, Jedi.Just as a side note, why is it whenever a woman is a villain, she must be uber sexual Being so sexy that all males within a 200 light year radius immediately want to bed her, being constantly on the prowl for a new nighttoy , and acting in a ridiculously sexual manner to all males within breathing distance How many male villains can be described in this way Why is it that, after all these years, women can only be thought of in a sexual way I m sorry, but I m sick of this sexist characterization Were Lenoia Tavira a male, then most of Tavira s sexuality would have been omitted.Since we are talking about Mary Sues, we might as well bring up Corran Horn There are a million ways in which he can be considered a Marty Stu, some of them being his rugged good looks, his incredible dexterity with the Force that seems to outshine even Luke Skywalker even considering his inability to employ telekinesis , his holier than thou attitude about death and destruction, his nonchalance about sleeping around, his manipulation of the events of the Jedi Academy Trilogy apparently, Corran Horn was the one really behind Exar Kun s destruction and the fact that he is able to single handedly resist the dark lord s advances, something that four other Jedi including Luke Skywalker if you consider how he was incapacitated were unable to do While I enjoyed Corran telling off Luke Skywalker who has always been shown as far too omnipotent for my taste , I bristled at Corran bragging about taking the high road and not killing, but also having no qualms about committing adultery with Tavira while his wife is captured Uh, hello Your wife is gone and all you can think of is getting laid with a child not really, but the parallels are made constantly Mirax seriously needs to reconsider this marriage when she returns.The next biggest problem is the plot Yes, it is nice to see Corran at the Jedi Academy, but what man in his right mind will spend 10 weeks training to be a Jedi when his wife has been captured This is just plain ludicrous there is no way the staple answer of training to be a Jedi so I can find my wife will suffice It is a lame way for Stackpole to clean up the events from the Jedi Academy trilogy It makes Corran look like an insensitive twit and distracts from the story Further, while it is nice to see a Corran s perspective of Jedi training, the first half of the book just drags The actual Jedi training seemed a little sketchy, thin, and weakly defined Yes, Stackpole does a good jobwhen he is actually describing it But there are many, many pages devoted to Corran s numerous serious talks with everyone from Wedge to Jaina Solo okay, not true, but close , giving Luke Skywalker advice on how to train doesn t it seem odd to anyone else that someone who has no Jedi experience is giving tips to the only remaining Jedi Master , and psycho analyzing Exar Kun All together, it seems like disjointed anecdotes thrust together with little overreaching plot to tie the anecdotes or the entire novel together Only when Corran leaves does the story really pick up and begin to go anywhere.Dialogue Sexual Situations Violence Star Wars profanities crop up.The story begins with Mirax trying to convince Corran to have a child nothing explicit Leona Tavira s sexual exploits are made constant mention of Further, once Corran sees her, Corran experiences a sort of sexual attraction and is contemplates sleeping with her atthan one point, even attempting to justify an affair with her.Corran partakes in a dogfight, several duels, and a threat to the Academy on Yavin 4 At least one person dies.Overall I feel in love with this book when I was a teenager Now that I m older, it doesn t quite have the same shine Yes, it is still an excellent book Yes, it does a superb job with the first person viewpoint, detailing an intimate portrait of Jedi training, and showing Corran s introspective journey But there were a few hiccups, namely lame plot, Marty Stu characterization, and a pathetic villain Solid four stars

    I m not entirely sure why people like this book I found the pace unbearably slow, the writing sub par and the plot very dull It s mostly just rambling and wandering with the main problem of the story conveniently pushed to the side until the last fifty or so pages where the action really gets going This book could really be cut in half, or even less The unwitting Force sensitive trope is overused to death in Star Wars, and this is just another example The character to me comes across as rat I m not entirely sure why people like this book I found the pace unbearably slow, the writing sub par and the plot very dull It s mostly just rambling and wandering with the main problem of the story conveniently pushed to the side until the last fifty or so pages where the action really gets going This book could really be cut in half, or even less The unwitting Force sensitive trope is overused to death in Star Wars, and this is just another example The character to me comes across as rather dull and one sided, and he just wastes so much time that it seems he doesn t really care about the issue at hand, despite repeated protestations otherwise Corran Horn is just about as mary sue as it gets Having just read the Jedi Academy Trilogy, it felt really tiring to read the same story again, just from a different perspective With a little bitcreativity, the continuity mess could have been sorted I liked the X wing books, but this one was just plain horrible, it s just about as bad as the short with the Weequay couple on a cruise, but at least that one was short

    Interesting book about a completely new character and his struggles to become a Jedi.

    I, Jedi is another book I read when I was younger, and apparently didn t understand or remember very much of it It s a pretty good story set in the expansive Star Wars universe, and I enjoyed my read.It does have some flaws While Stackpole s writing is leaps and bounds better than his writing in the X Wing series, some of it is still wooden, stilted, or just plain unrealistic The voice at the beginning is excellent you get a clear idea of Corran s character Unfortunately, that unique voice I, Jedi is another book I read when I was younger, and apparently didn t understand or remember very much of it It s a pretty good story set in the expansive Star Wars universe, and I enjoyed my read.It does have some flaws While Stackpole s writing is leaps and bounds better than his writing in the X Wing series, some of it is still wooden, stilted, or just plain unrealistic The voice at the beginning is excellent you get a clear idea of Corran s character Unfortunately, that unique voice fades over the course of the story.I was able to look over the method in which Corran was recruited to be a Jedi which was pretty thinly veiled as an excuse to get Corran to be a Jedi and not at all what a real person would ve done in his situation , but there are a handful of other plot points that were weak, and the buildup climax is pretty dull, especially after the Jedi Academy portion.Let s talk characters Corran s pretty cool, except he s always perfectly logical, and when he isn t, he s swayed pretty quickly by logic He s smart, though, and determined He takes action He s one of the weaker Jedi at Luke s academy, but that doesn t stop him and makes him stand out better as a hero His character growth is decent, but feels artificial and paced wrongly at pivotal points.Sadly, Corran easily overshadows Luke Skywalker, who s pretty much a wuss in this book Stackpole writes him without a spine and takes naive to the extreme In fact, I wouldn t have been surprised if Luke suddenly burst out with a, Gee whiz somewhere in the story Think Star Wars Episode IV, except magnified So annoying.To make matters worse, Corran is constantly picking Luke and his methods apart which makes Corran come across as arrogant and condescending It feels like Stackpole is trying to tell everyone how awesome Corran is, which has the opposite effect.The dialog is usually alright, but there s some stilted stuff in there, as well as some pretty awkward conversations You d just have to read it.The Jedi Academy portion was pretty cool, and where Stackpole shines the most Corran s inability to use telekinesis and the fact that he s not a special snowflake really helps His skills lie elsewhere, and the method of their reveal was a fun part of the story Unfortunately, Corran s skills have a giant leap in prowess later and it s too easy to speculate how he could become all powerful with his illusion ability use Sanderson s Second Law, man Corran s energy absorbing ability follows that Law better it s highly dangerous and painful and is thus muchinteresting.In summary, I really, really enjoyed the first half of the book, while the second half once he left the academy I felt to be lacking It s a decent read in the Star Wars EU, though, and I feel that I can recommend it as part of the experience Despite Stackpole s portrayal of his pet character getting in the way, Corran IS an awesome Jedi pilot investigator, and it s worth seeing things from his point of view
