  1. This is the first time I ve read a book written based on a movie Not a bad effort In some ways better than the movie because the reader is taken inside the point of view characters Terry Brooks, of course, is an accomplished author and did not hurt his reputation with this novel.One major shortcoming of both book and movie and therefore probably Lucas , rather than Brook s, fault came into clearer focus in the book No one recognized Padme as Amidala until she reveals herself Not Anakin, who thin [...]


  2. Description A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, an evil legacy long believed dead is stirring Now the dark side of the Force threatens to overwhelm the light, and only an ancient Jedi prophecy stands between hope and doom for the entire galaxy.On the green, unspoiled world of Naboo, Jedi Master Qui Gon Jinn and his apprentice, Obi Wan Kenobi, arrive to protect the realm s young queen as she seeks a diplomatic solution to end the siege of her planet by Trade Federation warships At the same [...]


  3. Enjoyed this way than I was expecting I feel like I actually know what goes on in episode 1 now and what Lucas was trying to achieve.


  4. Although it isn t going to set yor pants on fire, the novelization of The Phantom Menace is actually quite a good book One of the reasons why many people disliked the film version of The Phantom Menace is because the film didn t focus on its main character, Anakin Skywalker, who would one day become the future Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader In the book, however, the story hones in on Anakin, and explores his life as a slave, laying down the narrative foundation for us to understand why Anakin bec [...]


  5. The opinions of others whether you agree with them or not are something you have to learn to tolerate Qui Gon and Obi Wan, two Jedi knights well, one is a Master, the other his Padawan, but who s counting , are surreptitiously sent to Naboo to negotiate a treaty to put an end to the blockade the Trade Federation has on the planet But negotiations are short when the Neimoidians try to kill them and now the Jedi try to get Queen Amidala, ruler of Naboo, to Coruscant, to spur the Republic into acti [...]


  6. There s an interesting re edit of Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace out there, called The Phantom Edit It s one person s edit of the original movie, with as much of the moronic Jar Jar, annoying Anakin, and redundant storyline removed as possible It s an improvement, though the movie still falls far short of the original trilogy.Unfortunately, this book goes in the opposite direction The author expounds on both the Jar Jar and the Anakin idiocy, often taking it to extremes for example, when [...]


  7. I m going to play the ultimate nerd contrarian and admit that I love this movie and novelization It s probably just heavy nostalgia for one of my last pre puberty summers, but I m ok with that.


  8. Considering this is based on a movie that has some pretty bad dialogue and some serious pacing issues, it isn t actually that bad of a read It s a pretty quick read, which is also good because nothing feels too drawn out, and it also lets you into the characters heads a bit .




  9. In this life you re often born one thing and die another You don t have to accept that what you re given when you come in is all you ll have when you leave With this being said by an old pilot, we witness Anakin s change of life right before our eyes From being a slave on a desert planet he becomes a new Padawan learner at the age of nine Which is, in terms of the Council, old, but destined to be the Chosen One, the Council accepts him Therefore, he should be the one to bring balance to the Forc [...]


  10. A Heartbreak Hipster ReviewA long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I was a shy, meek, slightly confused nine year old virgin It was all a very long time ago but only if you measure it in years Pok mon cards were the primary source of one s superiority sharing a bedroom with a bunch of other boys was not yet an eyebrow raiser the prospect of working through the holidays was little than a sick joke and Star Wars The Phantom Menace was the greatest movie of all time Now before you freak o [...]


  11. Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace by Terry Brooks is the novelization of the movie of the same name Episode I is my favorite of the saga, and I really loved how this book brought even scenes and dialogue into the story I recommend that any Star Wars fan read the novelizations of the films as well.


  12. After seeing the Star Wars movies for the first time last year I decided I wanted to read the books of the prequel series as well and bought the omnibus edition with the three prequel books I finally got around to reading the first book and it s a great way to revisit the story and experience it in a different way I think this is the first time I read a book after I ve seen the movie It was an interesting experience, instead of visualizing the characters myself I saw the actors and landscapes fr [...]


  13. 3,5 Sterne Als begeisteter Star Wars Fan seit meiner fr hesten Kindheit konnte ich nat rlich nicht einfach daran vorbei gehen, als ich sah, dass die B cher zu den Filmen im schicken neuen Design neu aufgelegt wurden Ich hatte noch nie einen Roman der direkt nach einem Film geschrieben wurde gelesen, wollte das aber gerne mal ausprobieren und schwupps war Star Wars, Episode I Die dunkle Bedrohung als Rezensionsexemplar angefragt.Mein erster Eindruck zu dem Buch war erst einmal positive berraschun [...]


  14. Let us cover the skill and style of writing in question first, before we come to my quibbles over certain plot elements which were, to be fair, mostly Lucas fault and nothing to do with the author of this book who has only faithfully followed Lucas vision Obviously any author who is writing the novelisation of a film is under pressure to produce something that is not just an exact replica word for word of the lines in the script It is very obvious that this has been a major consideration of Terr [...]


  15. So I don t think the blame for the awfulness of this book rests at all on Mr Brooks shoulders Let s just make that clear up front The writing itself is not bad, given what he had to work with The STORY, Characters, and everything else is just Terrible Reading the novelization, without the distraction of the special effects and flashy action sequences makes it that much clearer Too often, the answer to why would this character do this or why did totally obvious solution x not occur to anyone is b [...]


  16. This is a pretty solid adaptation from Terry Brooks who is most known for his Shannara novels These sorts of adaptations can be insights as to how the eventual movie gets made For instance, did George Lucas really intend to start The Phantom Menace off with a pod race That s how Brooks presents it to us, and while it does work in the novel, it probably would have vilified The Phantom Menace for Star Wars fans so than it already is It s honestly not that bad of a movie folks it s no Attack of th [...]


  17. About as good as its source material, which is not saying much I found myself bored through most of this The parts in the movie that don t really further the plot eg pod race, space battle at the end are at least pretty to look at on screen that doesn t translate well to words on a page And the changes from the film dialogue generally make it awkward and unbelievable Anakin s repeated announcement about his future with Padme, for example.The Darth Plagueius book did a good job of fleshing out T [...]


  18. This book, to me, was mostly a pointless rehash of a mediocre at best movie, but without the impressive special effects that made the movie worth seeingonce.I read this only because my sister claimed it would would make me like Jar Jar, or at least empathize with him It did not I would rather the Jedis had to carry around a bucket of feces than have Jar Jar tag along with them It would have been funnier than Jar Jar s so called catch phrase spouting comic relief, and it would have been only slig [...]


  19. I really enjoyed this book It s a great edition to the Star Wars expanded universe, both new and Legends Though I could have used less Gungansways less Gungans You get a lot from Anakin than you do in the movie which helps to add to his ultimate journey to the Dark Side His relationship with Padme seems far less creepy and intentional And the tension between Yoda and Qui Gonn was really palpable in the book, while it s only sort of hinted at in the movie All in all, I really enjoyed this book [...]


  20. Wait, the Shannara guy wrote this Commissioned by Lucas himself I don t know why I am finding this so funny I am currently reading The Sword of Shannara, yes Cindy I am still not done yet please wait for me to catch up, and whilst it is a gentle facsimile of Lord of the Rings, this novelization, to call it that is a stretch really, often fondly called the straight off screenplay, was as bland as the first movie in the prequel trilogy.


  21. I Love the book and the movie And this book is basically the same as the film, except greatly expanded And, of course, the book allows us to get into the heads of the characters and find out what they are thinking The best thing about the novelization is the added scenes, the scenes cut from the film, and the background information.



  22. I read this on a whim because I had heard that the novelizations of the Star Wars films were pretty good across the board , and I must say that I was shocked Terry Brooks manages to execute the material and elevate it far beyond the film it was based on Or, maybe it is st a case of something being better on paper than on celluloid Whatever the case, this was a strong sci fi novel that is leaps bounds better than the movie It is not bogged down with an abundance of misused CGI or marred by sub pa [...]


  23. Definitely enjoyed reading it I enjoyed the additional insight of knowing the characters thoughts and intentions, something you don t get in the movie The extended parts not in the movie were a nice addition Unless you already decided to hate the prequel movies, it should be an enjoyable read.


  24. I actually finished this a while ago sorry Honestly, the first movie and book as a result are subpar in comparison to the others I like this book infinitely than the movie it was based off of, however Make no mistake skip the movie and read the book instead You will NOT regret it.


  25. With the Phantom Menace being by far the weakest of the Star Wars movies it took me a while to get around to reading the book, but I was pleasantly surprised how good it was.Firstly having the thoughts and feelings of the POV characters really helps connect to them Seeing Anakin s POV makes him a much likeable character than he is in the first movie plus you don t have to put up with the bad acting His love of Padm comes across in this book than the movie, making his feelings that he has at th [...]


  26. Vorweg, ich bin ein richtiger Star Wars Freak und wollte jetzt endlich die B cher lesen Episode I war sowiesocht mein Lieblingsteil, deswegen habe ich so gut wie keine Erwartungen gehabt.Dennoch hat es mich sehr fasziniert, Einblicke in Anakins Gedanken und Gef hle zu bekommen Auch Obi Wan, Qui Gon und Padm erscheinen mir viel sympathischer und authentischer Generell hat es mich sehr fasziniert, das Filmgeschehen in Form eines Buch zu lesen.Naja, trotzdem aber hat mich das Buch berhaupt nicht ge [...]
