Attack of the Clones by R.A. SalvatoreThere is great disturbance in the Force . . .
Mischievous and resolved, courageous to the point of recklessness, Anakin Skywalker has come of age in a time of great upheaval. The nineteen-year-old apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi is an enigma to the Jedi Council, and a challenge to his Jedi Master. Time has not dulled Anakin’s ambition, nor has his Jedi training tamed his independent streak. When an attempt on Senator Padme Amidala’s life brings them together for the first time in ten years, it is clear that time also has not dulled Anakin’s intense feelings for the beautiful diplomat.
The attack on Senator Amidala just before a crucial vote thrusts the Republic even closer to the edge of disaster. Masters Yoda and Mace Windu sense enormous unease. The dark side is growing, clouding the Jedi’s perception of the events. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, a slow rumble is building into the roar of thousands of soldiers readying for battle. But even as the Republic falters around them, Anakin and Padme find a connection so intense that all else begins to fall away. Anakin will lose himself—and his way—in emotions a Jedi, sworn to hold allegiance only to the Order, is forbidden to have.
Based on the story by George Lucas and the screenplay by George Lucas and Jonathan Hales, this intense and revealing novel by bestselling author R. A. Salvatore sheds new light on the legend of Star Wars—and skillfully illuminates one of our most beloved sagas.

Yet a little of him — of it — went a long, long, long, long way. Knowing that the story itself was the problem, he created a scapegoat for our disappointment. Or rather, a ScapeJarJar. It certainly appears to hold no excitement for the ostensibly flesh-and-blood actors hired by Lucas to play among its menagerie of computer-generated and -manipulated creatures and aliens. Both can act. But suited up in their exotic costumes and forced to spout the tritely portentous dialogue written by Lucas and Jonathan Hales, they seem to be negotiating their way through stage fright with the help of a Teleprompter.
