The Clone Wars by Karen Traviss (review)

Title: The Clone Wars
Author: Karen Traviss
Illustrator: N/A
Discs: 7
Genre: Young People
Dewey Decimal: YP CD F Tra Clo
Cost: $0

Another stereotypical Star Wars book that has the stereotypical plot, characters, and action sequences. How this franchise can continue to support works like this is amazing. But even more amazing is that Traviss wrote this. I know it was likely designed to be a bit "toned down" as far as depth and scope, but Traviss has proven herself as a solid writer in some of her previous Star Wars works; namely the Commando series. And while her Commando series can't really compare to the arcs of New Jedi Order or Legacy of the Force, it's good enough to recommend.

Clone Wars on the other hand, is not. So save your time and money, and check it out from the library in either print or audio formats. Both will entertain you, but don't expect to think very hard while you travel through hyperspace.
