STAR WARS the clone wars, A book about what happened between the second movie of star wars and the third movie of star wars. it is set in a world where the galactic republic is in a war with the federation of separate planets.the galactic republic clone troops for their army and the federation of separate planets build robots for their army. and stuck in the middle of this chaos is a baby hutt.

In my opinion I thought it was a very good book. It had lots of action like right in the beginning the clones were fighting the robots with jedi along their side. It was not boring for one second, not even when no one was fighting. when no one was fighting the people that were focused on were talking about there life and what has happened like when Anakin was saying that he was a slave to a hutt but yet he has to save one. But really I thought it was a really good book. ( )

I did not really enjoy this book. I found that if you watched the movie there is really no purpose in reading the book. I was expecting the book to elaborate on the characters, their feelings, on Zero the Hutt but it really did not. All-in-all not my favorite Star Wars novel. ( )

Novelization of the animated film of the same title. Not bad at all, but it's like the film. Short, simple story, two-dimensional characters. Just for fans... ( )

Not a bad novelization of the latest movie from Lucasfilm Animated. There's plenty of action here and a good introduction to what I hope will be key characters in the upcoming television show. But the real strength in this novel is Traviss' descriptions and characterizations of the clone troopers themselves - Captain Rex in particular. Most Star Wars fans already know the likes of Anakin Sykwalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, Jabba the Hut, and even villainess Asajj Ventress. But to get a humanistic description of life in the Clone army was, in my opinion, a nice bonus.

Overall though, it suffers from the plight of many other film-to-book (as opposed to book-to-film) adaptations: restrictions on character development, plot, and very basic scenic/enviroment descriptions. I just saw the movie today and actually liked it ... as a film. As a novel though, Clone Wars won't stand up to the likes of other great works (Lord of the Rings for example).

But it will whet your appetite for more on this aspect of the Star Wars mythos. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 034550898X, Hardcover)

Across the galaxy, the Clone Wars are raging. The Separatists, led by Count Dooku, the onetime Jedi and now secret Sith Lord, continue to press forward, and more and more worlds are either falling, or seceding and joining the cause. Under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic heroically battles on, championed by its huge army of cloned soldiers and their Jedi generals.

Anakin Skywalker, believed by some to be the prophesied “Chosen One” destined to bring balance to the Force, is now a Jedi Knight under the tutelage of his Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Death is a constant possibility–and his chances of survival aren’t improved by the unexpected arrival of an apprentice: Ahsoka, a brash, inexperienced fourteen-year-old Padawan apprenticed to Anakin. But there’s no time for Anakin to question his latest orders: He and Obi-Wan have been assigned a new mission, and failure is not an option.

Jabba the Hutt’s precious infant son has been kidnapped, and when the frantic parent applies to the Jedi for help, it falls to Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and their clone troops to track down the evidence and retrieve the missing Huttlet. And more is at stake: For a grateful Jabba just might allow the Republic access to the Hutt-controlled space lanes that the Grand Army desperately needs in order to beat the Separatists into submission.

But the Republic is not the only power that craves access to those space lanes. Count Dooku, determined to win the prize for the Separatists, has set a trap for the Jedi. When they find the Huttlet, they will also find Dooku’s master assassin, Asajj Ventress, and countless legions of battle droids waiting to spring a trap.

The blazing new animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes place in the years preceding Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and sets the stage for the groundbreaking TV series. Both contain all original material–direct from the brilliant imagination of legendary Star Wars creator George Lucas. And these exciting new adventures and characters are being brought to life in book form by none other than #1 New York Times bestselling Star Wars author Karen Traviss.
