Book Review: To Sleep in a Sea of Stars

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini

My rating:

It’s been a while since I’ve written a book review. Sometimes, when I finish a book, I just don’t feel like writing a review. I want to immediately dive into the next book. This is especially true of books in a series. In this case I have some thoughts I felt like sharing.

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a long book. The copy that I read was over 800 pages, excluding the 20 pages of addendum content. Despite its length, I did enjoy this book. I never felt like I was struggling to get through it. It’s written by the author of one of my favorite fantasy series, The Inheritance Cycle.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part VI

Well folks, here we are. Kenobi Part VI, the final episode of the series. I’m sad that it’s over but we were told from the very beginning it would be a “limited series”. They delivered exactly what was promised, both in quantity and quality. There is so much happening in this episode. So many emotions. I will probably provide some final thoughts in a follow-up post. In the meantime, let’s get into it.

spoiler alert!!!

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part V

Kenobi Part V is the penultimate episode of the season/series! The “Empire Strikes Back” episode (see last weeks post if you’re confused by that) and it’s so good! By this point we have seen everything that is in the trailers. Which means everything from this episode on is completely unseen content! Knowing what we know from last week, confrontation is inevitable as the Imperials close in on his location.

Star Wars Canon vs Legends

From USA Today – October 30, 2012

The fandoms first real controversy began with the prequels (if you exclude the “Han Shot First” deal). However, this isn’t about my opinion of the prequels (I love them, btw). This is about what happened 10 years ago, when George Lucas decided he was finished making Star Wars movies and sold the rights of the franchise over to Disney. One of Disney’s first acts was the “decanonization” of anything written after Return of the Jedi (also known as the Extended Universe, or EU for short). Thus begins the Star Wars Canon vs Legends discussion.

2022 Intentions Mid-Year Review

I can’t believe how fast this year is going. We are already in June, the halfway point of the year. That means it’s time for my 2022 intentions mid-year review (already!). I’ve had to make a few adjustments to accommodate for a few changes and I will discuss those when we get there. This post is a nice break from the plethora of Star Wars posts I’ve been making. To be fair, May is Star Wars month and there is a new series I’m excited to discuss.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part IV

Kenobi Part IV

This episode is a little slower than the last but still a great episode. There are two more left and I believe this one is setting up the final confrontation. The end of Part III is just a taste of the promised “re-match”, of this I am certain. There are more details, and theories, I want to get into for Kenobi Part IV but, as usual, I have to issue the spoiler warning first.

This one isn’t quite as riddled with easter eggs as the previous episode, but there is something familiar if you’ve seen The Clone Wars. Let’s pause here for the spoiler warning before I say too much.
