    1. A skillful patch of known and previous stories about Obi Wan Kenobi, this books lacks the originality the story of books like Kenobi However, for its apparent audience young, even middle grade readers it s a satisfying story.



    2. MehIt was well written but there was almost nothing that I didn t already know, like maybe one or two stories that weren t covered in the movies



    3. I thought that this was a really interesting book that explained details about Star Wars that I never knew before If you re a Star Wars nerd, then you ll love this book It was well written and very interesting It explains Obi Wan Kenobi and his journey s through being a Jedi It starts when Luke finds Obi Wan s journal and reads it Then the book takes you through Obi Wan s life from padawan to a force apparition I think that this book showed every little detail that was not shown in the movies ab [...]


    4. I can t really complain about one of the junior Star Wars books being, well, junior I imagine that a young fan of Obi Wan would be delighted As an adult fan, though, it s a bit underwhelming.Part of the issue is that it s mostly just a simple collection of dialog from the movies The big problem with that is that there s no insight, and no filling in the blanks between scenes This is especially problematic, I think, in the Episode One sections There s a lot of in between to explore there, and it [...]


    5. My son picked this out and then read it in 1 sitting He loved it It is essentially a sequential collection of dialogue from the movies, cartoons and some other books It makes the story of Obi Wan a single volume which was fun Obi Wan Kenobi is my favorite of the Jedi This book added for me a dimension of his fallibility and humanness It explained at least from this author s perspective the reason, feeling and decision Obi Wan had when he walked away from Anakin Darth Vader on Mustafar I enjoyed [...]


    6. Great Book i loved it great back story from obi wan s pov and Luke s it really filled in some blanks of obi wan s early life and how he was involved in luke and Leia s life directly and interactively very enjoyable for old school star wars fanatics and obi wan fans It also shown how obi wan knew all along that Luke could detstroy the empire and redeem Anakin where he could not and how obi wan s and Yoda s training prepared Luke for that.


    7. Unfortunately, I was not as impressed with this book as I d hoped to be It did bring together many details from all of the movies, it felt like little than a rehashing of scenes Honestly, I much prefer the Jedi Apprentice and Last of the Jedi young reader series by Jude Watson.


    8. Taking place prior to Return of the Jedi, Luke has returned to Tatooine, specifically to Ben Kenobi s residence There he finds a journal that Obi Wan had left and as he reads it, he reflects back.The author did a fantastic job interweaving scenes from the movie with other events in Obi Wan s life that we don t know about So many questions are answered here like why Obi Wan went by the name Ben, etc , and that is the strength of the book.I feel like the writing style was generally utilitarian I w [...]


    9. Since this book is squarely aimed at preteen readers it should be forgiven the simple approach to writing It bounced back and forth between past and present using movie plot lines and Luke s quest to find answers to move the story along It was fun to learn a bit about Obi Wan but I wanted There could have been less rehashing of the movies and of the interesting bits in between.


    10. A nice short story following Obi Wan from his early years as a padwan, through to his spirit like advice after death It was good to fill in some blanks like when he first met Dex and what he thought when he battled Darth Vader.



    11. Absolutely loved reading about Obi Wan Kenobi and how he became Anakin s master and I pictured the movies in my head


    12. Windham pieces together the various phases of Obi Wan s life, drawing on many of the now legendary junior novels.


    13. Simple Synopsis This book was a general overview of what transpired between Episode III and IV I was expecting a much informative plot on his action, adventures and dealings.


    14. When I went through to add the juvenile books to my Expanded Universe reading project, I got a little picky in which books to include I wanted books that did than just retell the stories of the movies, or were too, too basic, so I didn t add the early reader books or the character journals or the junior novelizations to my list I figured I was looking for new content, not retellings, and I left those out all together.The Life and Legend of Obi Wan Kenobi, though, is mostly retellings Windham ad [...]


    15. My book is The Life and Legend of Obi Wan Kenobi written by Ryder Windham This book covers all of Obi Wan s life from the pain to his success The book also covers the main people in Obi Wan s life throughout his young years as a padawan and his years as a Jedi master One reason why I love this book is because of the writing style Windham uses He uses a lot of show don t tell especially in the most important parts of Obi Wan s life An example of Windham showing and not telling is when Anakin Skyw [...]


    16. The authors purpose for writing The Life and Legend of Obi Wan Kenobi is to entertain and to inform I think this because the book tells the reader what happened to Obi Wan through out all six movies So it is sort of informing the reader as to what his life was like when the movies didn t tell you The author wrote it to tell all six Star Wars movies from Obi Wan s point of view The audience for this book would be young adult This book is an action book I think that the theme for this book is don [...]


    17. In the beginning Obi Wan Kenobi and Qui Gon Jinn are on the planet Ilum to craft Obi Wan s first lightsaber Then they go to the planet of Naboo to free it from a separatists blockade and save the Queen As soon as they rescue the Queen didn t free blockade yet they head to a poor desert planet to repair there hyperdrive Soon after they landed they meet a toydarian who had a part shop and owned two slave Anakin and Shmi Skywalker Anakin made a bet with the toydarian saying if he won the race he wo [...]


    18. Critique The main character of my story is Obi wan kenobi he is one of the best jedi s in his time Obi wan was trained when he was little got trained to be a strong jedi when he was older Later he would grow up to train luke skywalker This book informed me about star wars before I knew a little but now I know I don t suggest you read this book unless you know about star wars it only says where he has been This book can relate to me because when he was little he was trained to become a jedi, my [...]


    19. A 214 page novel by Ryder Windham and I thoroughly enjoyed it First off, after four months of reading mostly about the Sith early on and Obi Wan lately , to see Luke Skywalker s name in a book wasexciting Very cool Those my age can relate, as I was a little boy when I first met Luke on the big screen and have watched Star Wars later dubbed A New Hope at least once per year ever since The story takes place after Empire Strikes Back but before Return of the Jedi Luke returns to Tattooine and Obi W [...]


    20. Barely than a movie recap.There were very few moments that weren t straight from IV, V, VI The few portions of the book that were original filled in some questions, but told nothing really of Obi Wans life.


    21. Ach, was soll man nur zu Ryder Windham sagen Sachb cher kann er ja schreiben z.B Jedi vs Sith , aber mit spannend erz hlten Geschichten hat er es nicht so Nach seinem Vader Buch hatte ich keine hohen Erwartungen an Obi Wan Kenobi Leben und Legende Und meine Bef rchtungen haben sich Anfangs auch bewahrheitet Der erste Teil ist langweilig Ab der Mitte bessert er sich und berraschender Weise fand ich die letzten Seiten sogar gut gelungen.Wer kein Star Wars Fan ist, sollte um dieses Buch einen gro e [...]


    22. A wonderful read This book takes Obi s days of being a Padawan all the way to when Vader died I love that part, when Obi realized his mistake, he had lost hope, he was too over whelmed and over come by grief and sadness at his failure and what happened to Anakin to see past to the fact that he could be redeemed, but not by him I loved seeing all six episodes from Ob s perspective, yes there is rehashes of the movie and of previous books novels written about Obi and his days as being an apprentic [...]


    23. Before anything, I d like to say that I loved the way the author managed to tie the events from the prequel and the original trilogy well in this book It s very engaging, to read about a younger Obi wan Kenobi s life prior to The Phantom Menace, as well as some of the scenes that were unexplored from Obi Wan s point of view And it also added depth to the character to see how the events had happened though his eyes From the Clone Wars to Mustafar and to Tatooine, it was an enjoyable read to see [...]


    24. Half this book are dialogues and events from the movies, the other half are interesting reflections from Obi Wan I m not going to knock out this book because most of it is merely movie scripts, that would be dishonest since part of the reason why I bought this book was to get some refresher to look forward to the incoming new movies.But the writing is not very good to be honest, and that is one reason I give 3 stars Also the interesting part starts only about half the book, when Obi Wan brings L [...]


    25. The Life and Legend of Obi Wan Kenobi was a fantastic novel, in my personal opinion Windham does an excellent job of connecting his own personal style with that of the original Star Wars series The back and forth between the present, using the perspective of Luke Skywalker, and the past, through the perspective of Obi Wan himself, was very well done The changing between future and past worlds does get a bit annoying though I got very into Obi Wan s story lines, and would actually sigh in frustra [...]


    26. This book should be called Obi 101 It provides a superficial telling of Obi Wan Kenobi, famed Jedi Told through a sub story of Luke Skywalker finding his Journal, it recounts Obi Wan s involvement in Episodes 1 through 6 of the saga There are nods to other stories and characters in the Expanded Universe or Legends series, as it is now known Targeted for junior readers or people new to the Star Wars franchise, I found it too basic and lacking detail about one of the famous and charismatic Jedi b [...]


    27. While I didn t expect this book to be an award winner, I had hoped it would be at least fun and worth my time It s nothing than a collection copy paste from other SW books, passed off as Obi Wan s journaling of his life as a Jedi There is no depth to the journal entries, that one would expect from a Jedi It s merely point by point retelling of what happened in a very limited manner at that I recommend that you pass this book by, it s nothing than a money maker using the SW name to entice fans [...]
