I got a surprise last night. I went on to youtube to find some of the videos about the High Republic setting to show my kids to get them interested in one of the books and was greeted by video after video griping and complaining about it. I watched a couple and from them it is clear that these are just the normal jokers who never seem to like anything.
But it made me wonder what the more intelligent members of this site might think.
I’m currently reading A Test of Courage to my kids, and it has a good start to it. So far I like it and find it well written, even if intended of a younger audience. But that is typical for Star Wars in my experience.
And I’m not sure the character is in this book, but they have evidently introduced a species that looks like a rock. Not the first time we’ve seen that, though in Star Wars it is a first. It actaully sent chills down my back when I saw that because it reminded me of The Stones of Blood, a Tom Baker era Doctor Who story with a group of such living rocks terrorizing rural England.
