5 🌟This book is the junior novelization of Revenge of the Sith. This book starts three years after Attack of the Clones. It shows the end of the Clones Wars, the fall of Anakin Skywalker, th fall of the republic. Most of the Jedi are killed and Palpatine turns the republic into the first Galactic Empire.
What I think of the overall book:Another great novelization of the movie, however I am just a little disappointed that I had to write in the following dialogue in the margin: "Hello there!""General Kenobi! You are a bold one." (However this is not a big deal at all, I just need that in there for meme purposes)Overall, like the previous novelizations, the book wasn't dumbed down/simplified; adults can enjoy this just as well as children, and can help them understand more aspects of the movie that...
A well-written novelization that differs a bit from the original film.
George Lucas wrote and directed the first six Star Wars films, which had a huge impact on not just my life, but many others. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Novelization brought back all of my childhood memories of pretending to be a Jedi who was fighting the empire in my backyard. This book has a ton of lessons engraved inside while covering it up with a action packed science fiction story.After breaking the Jedi Code and marrying the love of his life, Padme, Anakin Skywalker faces t...
After watching the movie of the book, I just wanted to read the book. The reason why is because even though its words its words that are written the best way.
I just love these Star Wars novelizations. I don't even know which of the movies I've seen. I find the novels so much better. :) Did it as an audiobook.
The novel of "Star Wars: Episode III, Revenge of the Sith" is a great adaption of the highly anticipated conclusion to the most popular film epic in history. Although the target audience is young readers, as an adult I had no problem with it and I thought the author gives a respectful presentation of the script from George Lucas. Of course this will not beat the film (obviously!) but I was not disappointed and I have to say, I really liked it.
In my opinion, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith by Patricia C. Wrede is a great novelization of the 2005 Star Wars prequel film of the same name. I recommend this book to people who love the Star Wars films and to anyone who loves the action/adventure/sci-fi/fantasy genre. Anakin turns to the dark side, Order 66 is executed by Chancellor Palpatine (Darth Sidious) which makes the clone troopers (created life forms) turn on their Jedi masters. Anakin heads to Mustafar, where a battle bet...
Patricia, you have done a wonderful job of writing revenge of the sith. The description of the battles between Count Dooku vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi & Anakin Skywalker, General Grievous vs. Obi-Wan & Anakin, General Grievous vs. Obi-Wan, Palpatine vs. Mace Windu, Palpatine vs. Yoda, Anakin/ Darth Vader vs. Obi-Wan is amazing. There are so many positives to this book. 1. Is that the description of everything is so good you can picture it in your head. 2. Is that it is exactly like the movie and I like t...
I CAN'T WITH ANAKIN AND PADMÉ. WHY ARE THEY SO GROSS????Okay, but, this is probs the worst movie, so it's probably the worst book (novelisation was good, storyline questionable), so it can only get better from here, right? I'm very much looking forward to reading A New Hope.
A retelling of the movie, Revenge of the Sith.A somewhat short retelling of what happened in the movie. The inner thoughts of the characters allow you to understand their decisions better. The creation of the Empire and Earth Vader seem to happen quickly.
Review by B.H.: "I liked the Jedi but it all fell after Anakin turned evil. I didn't like that part. [I would recommend it to] anyone who likes Star Wars."
Exactly like the movieI got this thinking there maybe more content in relation to The Storyline..There really wasn't any extra content. Basic storyline of technology Movie
I'm going to be honest; I read this as a joke. The thing I really didn't like was the change of dialogue between the movie and this book.
This book didn’t really do much for me. The movie is much better than this book and I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing style.
This book, even though it follows the movie pretty closely, it does cut out some of the more important fight scenes in the movie.
Read this as apart of a 24hr Star Wars readathon I'm doing by myself. 4/5
Four data I thought it was good but a little dark. So I would of given it five stars but because of the dark parts I rated it four stars.
It was very different from the movie!
STAR WARSPATRICIA C. WREDE74 PAGES1. In today's reading, did the setting or any characters remind you of people or characters in your own personal life?were any of the situations or events similar to your own life?how were they alike and how were they different?R/ this week i've read 74 pages, and after those pages i just figured out that the young anakin skywalker had the same doubt as me concerning his future. his life, his love were the thing for what he was worried about. when i was reading
I have read all three of Wrede's junior novelizations of the Star Wars prequels, and I have also read the three adult novelizations of the films, each written by different authors. A lot of people praise Matthew Stover's Revenge of the Sith novelization, and I like it too, but personally I prefer all three of Wrede's novels together to the separate styles of the other three. I think having the same author write all three stories is a great strength--I wish Wrede had done the same for the origina...
The book I read was Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith. I decided to read this book because I was born and raised on everything Star Wars. I have seen the movies tons and tons of times and know them begging to end very well. My Favorite of the six movies is Revenge of the Sith, so I chose to read the book as well. I wanted to see the differences between the book and the movie and as far as i'm concerned the main difference between the two would be that the book itself just go in to more d...
Rating: 4/5 Sith LordsI thought that this book was okay. Some of the action scenes were well described and I loved how it added this extra bit of story at the end about what Obi-Wan did to his ship and how he got to Beru and Owen's farm. The problem was that it didn't pack any heart in the action sequences. Normally the prequels don't but Revenge of the Sith's final battle(s) between Anakin and Obi-Wan/Sidious and Yoda- does have heart. These battles were just emotionless and so I never really g...
I really liked this book. I have always been a fan of Star Wars. I believe that this movie is one of the greatest ones made. This book even though it's more for younger kids, explained parts of the movie I wasn't 100% percent sure on and helped me to understand exactly what happened. For example towards the end of the movie Yoda tells Obi-wan that Qui-Gon Jinn would like to see him. I didn't understand how that could happen. Now I understand that Qui-Gon Jinn figured out how to pass into the spi...
This book is the last in the prequel trilogy. It is probably the best of the prequel trilogy movie and/or book. It involves Anakin Skywalker turning into Darth Vader, the fall of the Jedi, and the rise of the Galactic Empire. Overall I liked this book because there is action and a great storyline. There is even a little romance for those of you who enjoy that. I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys any of the above listed things.
This isn't as well-known as the Matthew Stover novelisation, but I certainly have pleasant memories of reading it as a 10-year-old. The pictures (photographs taken directly from the film, I recall) are a clever way of holding the attention and fascination of younger, perhaps less attentive readers. Experiences like this are probably why I'm now 11 years older and like Star Wars more than ever!
I was unaware at the time that it was a junior novelization. That being said, back then I was disappointed. Later realizing that it is intended for juniors, I felt it was nicely written for that targeted audience. It stayed true to the movie and gave you more insight on what could have possibly been going through that Mr. Skywalker's head.
I loved it when Anikan now Darth Vader was sent to Mustafar by his new master Darth Sidious to wipe out the Spertist leaders and the entire Jedi order from padawans to Jedi masters and even his friend and former master Obi-Wan Kenobi.-JF
I love origin stories, and of the 6 movies this one is my favorite. The book gave me the perfect amount of details for a story I wanted to read, but not a full novelization. If you like quick reads and passively enjoy Star Wars like me then I highly recommend it
This is not nearly the book written for adults by Matthew Stover, but it does stay more true to the movie from a simplicity stanpoint, perfect for a younger reader.
