So I'm reading my brand new copy of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, which I forked out $20 for. And it is BRILLIANT, I'm so glad I bought it. Ceca, I'm going to make you read this. You have NO IDEA OF ITS  BRILLIANCE, I GUARANTEE YOU.

Eventually, even stars burn out.


But I'm posting this because...

Because all there on the bridge was one in the Force, from the gross structure of the ship itself to the quantum dance of the electron shells of individual atoms - and because, after all, the nerves and muscles of the bio-droid general were creations of electronics and duranium, not living tissue with will of its own- it was just barely possible that with exactly the right twist of his mind, in that once vulnerable quarter of a second while Grievous was distracted, flinching backward from a spray of flame hot enough to burn even his armored body, Obi-Wan might be able to temporarily reverse the polarity of the electrodrivers in the general's mechanic hands.

Emphasis mine.

BUT SERIOUSLY, DID I JUST READ THAT?? aslj;alskjf;alsf look my brain is weird I can't cope with this sort of thing. Especially as I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan..

Hahaha. Anyway, if you've got the time and the money, just go buy 'Star Wars; Revenge of the Sith' by Matthew Stover, even if you've never seen a Star Wars film. I haven't, just bits... I've kind of patched together a knowledge of the canon through reading my cousin's novelisations, picture books, video games, encyclopedias etc. I've been to Star Wars exhibitions, read Star Wars fanfic (admittedly only Estora's) and I just bought a Star Wars book, even though I've never watched any of the films the whole way through.

I think it might be time, actually. Better go borrow some DVD's..

I am so glad you're enjoying it!! It's honestly one of the most brilliant books I've ever read, not even counting that it's a novelisation of a film. It's amazing in it's own right. XD XD You make sure Ceca Mire reads it, okay? ^_~ And do watch the films! Probably best if you watch them in the order of 4-5-6-1-2-3. That's the way I did - it kind of makes everything a bit more heartbreaking. XD

Yeah! The writing is ingenious and amazingly powerful. I like it when he goes all meta in describing the characters :3 I'll have to check out some of Matt Stover's original work. And I'll get hold of the films from my cousins.
