It's Was a Great Idea, But it Was Executed as Bad Fanfiction

The Approaching Storm - Alan Dean Foster

I'll be honest when I say that this book was something I would more readily believe would be found on than in a big name book store.


The story was about as slow as trying to train a deaf dog by screaming at it.I read fifty pages in and we still haven't really seen anything regarding Anakin's training, which was promised in the synopsis. So far, I've seen Obi Wan once and the rest was taken up by a set of characters no one's heard of before.


I also found myself highly distracted by one character's name because it was the name of an ethnic food. If you seriously cannot be bothered enough to actually check to make sure you're not going to put something like that in a novel.


I haven't read anything else by this author, but I think I'll take a pass the next time I come across one of his books.
