As for the novelisation of its predecessor The Phantom Menace, and indeed to an even greater extent, this novelisation expands on characters' background and motivations for their behaviour in a way that adds considerable depth to the film storyline. Again this is at the hands of a published author of fantasy novels. This deepening helps particularly in the case of the romance between Anakin and Padme, which was unconvincing on screen. Anakin's mother Shmi is also given a bit more "airtime" here prior to her tragic demise at the hands of the Tusken raiders, as are Jango and Boba Fett. Mercifully, Jar Jar Binks was in this one much less than its predecessor anyway. The battle and fight scenes are perhaps rather too protracted, though, and difficult to recapture the visual impact from the screen. ( )

Continuing the trend of novelizations of the prequel trilogy outshining their films, R. A. Salvatore's adaptation of Attack of the Clones is a must-read for any Star Wars fan. Salvatore's novelization adds much-needed depth to the main characters, both personally and in developing relationships. This book also adds some much needed pacing to the overall story. Like The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones benefits greatly from its novelization. For any Star Wars fan, this is a must-read. ( )

I didn't realize it was possible to make these characters even more flat and less interesting.

Clocking in at 353 pages, R.A. Salvatore's novelization of Episode II: Attack of the Clones is about a hundred pages longer than it has any right to be. While it captures the story well and includes some pretty good writing for the action scenes, the poor pacing makes the novel as a whole a bit disappointing.

His mind absorbed the scene before him, so quiet and calm and . . . normal.
Shmi Skywalker Lars stood on the edge of the sand berm marking the perimeter of the moisture farm, one leg up higher, to the very top of the ridge, knee bent.

Book description
Courageous to the point of recklessness, and possessing a wild independent streak, twenty-year-old Anakin Skywalker, apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi, is coming of age in a time of great upheaval. The attempted assassination of Senator Padme Amidala before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, a low rumble of discontent is building into the roar of thousands of clone soldiers readying for the ultimate fight. The dark side is growing. Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease ... for the fiercest battle of dark versus light is fast approaching, threatening to consume them all in a tidal wave of war.
