Review: The Ruins Of Dantooine
The Ruins Of Dantooine
Author(s): Voronica Robinson/Haden Blackman
Release Date: January 2004
Um, yeah. I just picked this one up recently, as I kept my focus on the Clone Wars/Old Republic era novels. That, and there wasn’t much about this novel that motivated me to hurry up and buy it. Honestly, the only reason why I had a shred of interest before purchasing was the word “Dantooine”. I was hoping that perhaps this was some kind of tie-in to the KOTOR games.
Anyway, bought the novel and read it. And was disappointed. Everything about it is forgettable. Probably because it was so rushed. I dunno. This novel did nothing for me, and I don’t see how it contributes to the EU at all. The back cover is a great read, but it all goes downhill after that. Perhaps the thinking was… millions of people play the game, so that will translate to millions of people buying the book. Maybe it did sell well, I don’t know. What I do know is that much of those buyers would probably like a refund.
Not trying to be harsh, but this is easily the worst novel I’ve read. The only plus that I can see is that it was so short. 280+ pages, and not a whole lot of words on each page. Better luck next time for VWR, if there is a next time. Sorry.
The Ruins of Dantooine receives a 1 out of 5.
