It filled the entire private chamber.

Chapter One. It seems to me that mine is becoming a very important planet, Honorable Shu Mai. The president of the Commerce Guild smiled thinly. Small keys can unlock very big doors, Senator Mousul. It filled the entire private chamber. By reaching out and touching a planetary system, a visitor could summon fourth a detailed, encyclopedic description of that system and its individual worlds: everything from species and population to minute characteristics of flora and fauna, economic statistics, and future prospects.

Written by beloved Star Wars veteran Alan Dean Foster, and starring a new character from the upcoming movie, The Approaching Storm tells the story of that daring mission. The Republic is decaying, even under the leadership of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, who was elected to save the galaxy from collapsing under the forces of discontent. Set on a backwater planet, The Approaching Storm is supposed to prepare the way for Episode II. It does to a certain extent although it downplays dark side of Anakins personality and relies on some predictable characters to move the story along. The setting was unique.

  • Book takes a bit longer than other SW novels to move the story along. I think it's because it did not have the typical jumping back and forth between sub-plots. There is some of that, but I think by staying with a single sub-plot too long, it slows the read down significantly. I'm a fan of the SW universe of novels, and I really was looking forward to this book because of the story potential, given it was mentioned in Episode 2. Unfortunately, it came up a bit short. Still worth a read, just devote some time.

  • Alien-horse ridding through greenfields and vast prairies, on another planet. That was fun. The story is about two adult Jedi knights and two teenage Jedi apprendices, and their mission and journey on a planet Ansion. It is an adventure novel similar to 19 century novels, with explorers in foreign lands.
    The plot has the typical star-wars (SW) elements: negotiations, fighting (less than other SW books), and the good versus evil approach to everything (which make this book suitable to joung readers, more than adults). But unlike most SW books which deal with galaxy wars and politics, this one deals mostly with native people on a planet, their habits and (a more primitive) way of life, and conflicts among local tribes.
    To approach these people, the Jedi choose to travel ridding a kind of horses. That's a slow journey, so the reader has much time to see the landscape and life forms that live there, described with detail by the author. Their contact with the tribals is more personal, and this forces the Jedi to show a part of themselves not seen in other SW novels. One can watch a lightsaber dance, and Jedi as art performers. That was realy beautiful to see, the most beautiful scene i've read in a book in many years.
    I think someone can read this book, without detailed knowledge of SW universe. So it is a good adventure for sci-fi fans in general. Even persons who like to read traveling adventures, on Earth, might find that book interesting, as long they can stand the strange names and descriptions of alien animals. Personaly i enjoyed this book, and give it 5 stars as a book for young people (4 stars as book for adults).

  • Foster, the writer of the first Star Wars books ever written rejoins the expanded universe with The Approaching Storm. Set on a backwater planet, The Approaching Storm is supposed to prepare the way for Episode II. It does to a certain extent although it downplays dark side of Anakins personality and relies on some predictable characters to move the story along. The setting was unique. In a universe filled with seedy space ports, seeing our Jedi ride herd animals and waltz over a savannah was a nice change of pace. The interation between the 4 Jedi was very well done. The original points of the story helped to make The Approaching Storm a very readable book. As for the bad, the villain is a hut of course with a tie in to Episode II villain Darth Tyrannus. The worst part of the story, is that Foster invents his own Gungan type characater in the person of Tooqui ( I know I spelled that wrong). This character generally causes mischief but by the end of the day, saves our heroes. He is not really needed. Overall, though I applud Foster's return to a galaxy far far away and hope that he consents to write another story for lucasbooks

  • I had high expectations when I picked this book and read that Alan Dean Foster (the author of the original "Star Wars" novelization) and he didn't disappoint.

    First, there are the requisite Jedi action scenes, for which there is both plenty and well written (most writer's description of action scenes I find either boring or incomprehensible) and don't crowd out the story. Next, is a well crafted political machinations with different power players interfering with the protagonists efforts. But the real gem of this story is the adventure part, the part when they finally leave the city.

    The story is set on a plains planet with nomadic tribes that have a, inconsistent, distrust of technology (they use blasters and comms but no land speeders). But this allows an excuse for the author to get his characters on relatively slow (to speeder velocity) native animals. ADF understands that the fun of an adventure story isn't getting to the destination, it's the journey along the way. We get to meet guides, different tribes that help or hurt our heroes, learn about the culture and ecology of the planet, and generally just explore. Anyone who has read a good fantasy novel where the characters experience highs, lows, dangers and wonder as they travel along the countryside know what I am writing about.

    If I had complaints it was that the political machination side wasn't developed quite enough for me, the ending after they acquired the treaty seemed abrupt and that I wanted to learn more about the planet they were on.

    But, if you're looking for a good, solid enjoyable read I strongly suggest The Approaching Storm.
