Biweekly Book Review: Revenge of the Sith

A pair of starfighters. Jedi starfighters. Only two. Two is enough. Two is enough because the adults are wrong and their younglings are right. Though this is the end of the age of heroes, it has saved its best for last. This is it. The big one. The one they all talk about. The StarContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Revenge of the Sith”

Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Race to Crashpoint Tower

Just a note to say that this is a SPOILER-FILLED review. If you want Spoiler-Free, check out my review over at The Geeky Waffle here. The middle-grade offerings for The High Republic have a unique quality about them. Though the High Republic as a whole has been excellent for rich characters and their overall development,Continue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Race to Crashpoint Tower”

Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: The Rising Storm

Just a note to say that this is a SPOILER-FILLED review. If you want Spoiler-Free, check out my review over at The Geeky Waffle here. It’s time. It’s finally time. Wave Two of Star Wars: The High Republic is finally here! When I think back to silly, skeptical Arezou back when the publishing initiative wasContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: The Rising Storm”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh

Commentary by Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams Midway through our Shakespeare project. Midway through the Prequel Trilogy. We’ve come so far. If you can believe it, we’re actually nice this time. Well…nicer. Are we just settling into the style? Is it a question of Ian Doescher feeling less attached to the Prequels and soContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh”

Biweekly Book Review: Attack of the Clones

As a whole, the Prequel Trilogy is my favourite one. I think it’s the most coherent as a trilogy because for better or worse, it’s one guy’s vision, one singular story, it was planned out start to finish and it shows. But with any story that comes out in multiple parts, we’re bound to haveContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Attack of the Clones”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace

Commentary by Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams We’re back and we’re ready to get into these Prequels! I am a big prequel fan, Nora isn’t. Buckle up kids. It’s time to get weird and political, and make some QUESTIONABLE choices. Let’s dive into The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher. Overall Impressions Arezou: IContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace”

Biweekly Book Review: The Phantom Menace

New territory, new format, you know how it goes! We’ve finally made it to the novelizations! Rather than reviewing the story and what it entails (because I presume you’ve seen the movies), I am instead going to focus on what each novelization contributed to – or detracted from, as the case may be – eachContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The Phantom Menace”

Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good

Thrawn is back! Well…”back”. For all that is name is on the cover of this book, he isn’t actually in it all that much. And unlike last time, people don’t even talk about him that much. He just sort of…is there. While other people are there. That’s not to say that I’m not still enjoyingContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good”

Biweekly Book Review: Skywalker: A Family At War

My heart is so full, y’all. I don’t even know where to start with this one. Perhaps along the lines of “Kristin Baver knocked this out of the damn park” because that is absolutely what happened here. I’m a fast reader but I usually like to take a couple of days to go through aContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Skywalker: A Family At War”

Biweekly Book Review: First Anniversary + Obi-Wan Kenobi Comics

Today I’m marking the one-year anniversary of the Biweekly Book Review and…well…safe to say I didn’t think this would last a year. This is partially because of my inability in the Before Times to consistently stick to writing a blog. I would post once, maybe twice, then abandon the whole thing. But then maybe that’sContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: First Anniversary + Obi-Wan Kenobi Comics”
