   best of the high republic young adult novels
Mr. Daschle picked this up expecting more of the same djo type stuff, but found a surprisingly deep story. this is older at his best, managing to tell a good young adult coming of age story while also making sure there was plenty of substance left over, with the book getting pretty serious by the end. Only if you've read the entire series of comics.
   Too Much Nonsense
The book is almost 500 pages long. I have never written a review for a Star Wars book, and I have read all of them, but I felt inclined to share my opinion. The High Republic series has gotten worse with each book. It took the cake.
   First Half Tested My Patience
The book is a YA Star Wars story, and in the first half the tropes were pushed to the limit. The children are the wisest and most capable, and the adults are clueless. Multiple characters in the CBS film worry how they are perceived by others. And the focus on potential romance and relationships? I was wondering if this was going to be called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" instead of "Jedi Rumspringa." Fortunately there was some serious introspection by a few characters and once the action started it got exciting, he said. Can read this one before or after the second book, "Fallen Star."
   Too much focus on being woke and not enough on the story.
He added that the writer "wasn't awake enough to tell the story." Half the book could be removed without losing any of the story I own all of the Star Wars books, and this is the first one that has completely disappointed me.
   Trying to make Star Wars "Woke"
There are multiple flashbacks that are only speed bumps to the actual story and have no payout. Other than that, it could have been a very good story, Crowe said.
   Sour disappointment
I love the constellation of Star Wars books, but this was the first one I returned as just too tired and disoriented to properly read.
   Satisfying 2nd Half Makes Up for Tedious 1st Half
This is the first sub-par release of the "Star Wars" universe, and it's due to the fact that the book spends too much time on the non-Jedi Corellian characters that are simply not particularly interesting and often feel out of place in the galaxy. At times, I felt as if the author was describing a modern-day Hollywood and not a city or characters in a galaxy far, far away. However, once the bad guys show up in the second half, the pacing picks up substantially, the Jedi characters—including the delightful Ram Jamoram—ignore the marketing! ]—take center stage, and I enjoyed the book from that point on, he said.
   No thanks
Don't really feel like saying much more than that, Garton said. It's just that I don't think you'll like it.
