Star Wars: Kenobi by John Jackson Miller

I had high hopes going into this novel. I’ve always liked Obi-Wan Kenobi and the idea of a novel about him set just after Revenge of the Sith sounded really interesting.

Unfortunately it wasn’t. I was bored from the start to the finish. Okay there were some bits near the end that were alright but that was about it. I thought we would get a lot of POV’s from him, and dealing with the consequences of what had happened. There were probably about 20 pages in total from his POV in his meditations and that was it.

The rest of the novel was basically set in the wild west of Tatooine with fairly inconsequential stuff that didn’t really go anywhere. It didn’t feel like a Star Wars novel. I don’t need constant Jedi or battles and things but this was basically a boring Western book that happened to be set in the Star Wars universe. At the end we didn’t learn anything new though there was a little character development. That was it. Feels like a complete waste of what could have been a great novel.
