shadowsofmindor Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor is a strange book.

Instead of being a simple battle between Sith and Jedi, author Matthew Stover bring in this new concept of The Dark.

what is the Dark? Apparently it’s not the Force but the Force can beat it…it also makes for some really convoluted plot that made this book confusing in its worst parts and downright boring in others.

Aside from the Dark – the basic premise of the book – that being an investigation into Skywalker’s actions – was totally lost except for the first and the last chapter. This is a shame. The plot structure could have been much better with a true investigation ..perhaps a retelling of the story from multiple viewpoints..

instead what do we have? who is the narrative voice? We don’t know..it’s just a confused muddled mess and a disappointing narrative.
