Episode I Adventures #13
Danger on Naboo
by A.L. Singer

Published by Scholastic


Scott's Rating:   1.5 out of 4


This is the thirteenth book in the Star Wars Episode I Adventures series. It is a game created by Scholastic in which the reader follows the story, then plays the RPG game that supplements it. It is only available in one of three ways: by ordering it from the Scholastic school book fair or school order form, through the form stuck within Jedi Apprentice #3, #6, or #7, or by picking it up on the secondary market (eBay, used book stores, etc.). In any case, it is not easy to find at all.

This book takes place during the movies unlike the other books. It follows Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon from their arrival on Naboo to their departure to Tatooine with the Queen.



Scott:

    This book is a major disappointment. While the other books create whole new stories, this one is a simple retelling of the film itself. Its one redeeming value is that it gives a little insight into what the characters were thinking, and it details some scenes cut from the film. For example, it has the scene where Obi-Wan shorts out his lightsaber in the Naboo swamp. It also has the scene where the bongo sub nearly goes over the waterfall when they arrive in Theed. This makes it worth flipping through.



Scott:

    There are numerous things wrong with this book, but the primary thing is that it is a simple retelling of the film while the rest of the series consists of 12 new stories. It's going to end on a THUD rather than a bang. And even when being a copy of the movie, there are still lines from the movie that are screwed up in the book. How could that have been wrong?

This book also short changes readers. While the previous ones were around 100 pages, this one is only 73. But that shorter length may be a blessing.



Scott:

    An ugly thought is that there will only be two more books in the series, and both will only be rehashes of the film.
