The Swarm (Star Wars) Reviews
The Swarm, a sci-fi thriller, by John Whitman is a great book for young star wars lovers. Zak and Tash are brought to the Sikadian Gardens of the Planet Sk'rrr. Their uncle and guardian wants to preserve the beauty of this planet from the evil Empire. Tash and Zak meet a crazy inhabitant of the planet that wants the drog beetle, which are also his ancestors, to rule the planet. With the help Sh'shak they restore the beauty back to the planet and rid the world Sk'rrr of the Galactic Empire.
Finally! Captain Thrawn shows up in a star wars book! Some may say that John Whitman didn't do a good job on him, but I think that he did great. Captain Thrawn is all that he should be. If you want to, read this one as a prelude to the Thrawn trilogy.
It's not great literature, but let's face it, it's Goosebumps does Star Wars. Like most of the other reviews, why did I read it? I will buy any Legends/EU material with Thrawn in it, that's why. And while, no, it's not as good as Zahn, and doesn't reach the levels of cleverness of Troy Denning's use of the character in Tatooine Ghost, Thrawn's more or less in character (he doesn't LIKE the kids, but as they aren't a threat to him, he doesn't hate or resent them and he doesn't go out of his way to do anything horrible.) It's a more respectful and in-character handling of a Zahn/Thrawn Trilogy character than poor Mara and Pellaeon got at the hands of authors who should have known better. (I'm looking at you, Darksaber and Jedi Academy.)And if like me you have a bug phobia or swarming insects give you the creeps, then this will work just fine as a lightweight scare story even as an adult reader. Ick. Bugs. Ew.Obligatory note to the cover artist: only Grand Admirals wear white. Thrawn is a captain. He doesn't even wear white in "The Making of Baron Fel" when he actually really should be (going on the timing of that and "Side Trip"). This is the one Imperial character where we didn't need the distinctive uniform to know which one he's supposed to be.
I read this for Thrawn and while he kinda acts like Thrawn, he also seems a lot dumber then Thrawn should be. It's a book for kids so I didn't expect all that much from it and I got what I expected for the most part.
Just got it yesterday.
I think that this book would be about 2 kids that fight giant bugs. Yes,the book was what I Expected It to be. I still feel the same about this book. Nothing about this book has changed. Thi9s book is about these kids who go to this planet called''Sk'rrr'' and one of the kids accidently kills a bug. The main characters are:Zak,Tash,and Hoole.The setting is at the SikadianGarden. The Book was actually about 3 kids that go to a planet called''sk'rrr''and one of them kills a shreev and it upsets the swarm of bugs.This book is Fiction.The author is John Whitman. I like this book because it has fighting in the book and ithas adventure striving in it. I would rate this book 4 stars. Theheadline for this book is:The Sikadian Garden on Sk'rrr has manybeautiful plants and flowers. By Thang Duong
