    1. 3.5 zvezda.Zabavna pricica koja prati Luka posle unistenja prve zvede smrti. Najvise sto mi se svidelo sto knga ima dosta dobar prikaz nama poznatih likova a i daje fin pogled na jednog od glavnih likova price.Sama prica kao prica nije nista posebno tako da se preporucuje samo fanovima. A njima ce biti vrlo zabavna.

    2. Fun little read. the back cover states there are clues about the new movie in this book. There are a couple of characters that feel set up for later appearances. Obviously aimed at young readers, but from an adult point of view it feels like they got the classic characters right.

    3. So, I saw “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. (As if you expected me not to.) And I loved it. LOVED IT. It was everything I expected from the new movie, maybe even a little more. Director J.J. Abrams did a wonderful job of keeping the film respectful of the tone of the original series while still making it accessible for new generations of fans. I loved the new characters. I loved the storyline. I even loved all the unanswered questions and missing back-stories that I know will gradually be reve [...]

    4. Read more reviews @ The BiblioSanctum.Luke’s story starts a little differently than Leia and Han’s. He’s the only person who isn’t actually “telling” his story for reasons that are obvious if you’ve watched or read Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Instead Luke’s story is told by C-3PO. Luke’s story takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Luke is trying to reconcile his roles as a pilot and as a Jedi. Following the death of Ben Kenobi, he’s left floundering wi [...]

    5. The Weapon of a Jedi is one of three middle grade books released on Force Friday and a part of the official Journey to Star Wars: Force Awakens line designed to drum up hype and curiosity for the new film. Each of the middle grade books is a little single dose adventure designed to help the newer fans get to know the old crew of the original films. This particular book centers on Luke and his struggle to become a Jedi.The book starts and ends with a nice little ‘current’ prologue and epilogu [...]

    6. A lot better than Luke's other solo book, Heir to the Jedi, but it's helped a little by it being a quicker and easier read. Like Heir, he's still just understanding the Force. It is quite cool to read about him early on and see him figuring things out for himself (since there's no one around to train him anymore, which is a point made several times in this novel). I also think what made Heir lag a bit is that it's from Luke's POV, and he can be quite boring a POV character at times because he's [...]

    7. This is the Star Wars that I love.The Weapon of a Jedi makes itself indispensable with its convincing portrayal of Luke Skywalker's growth as a Jedi-in-training between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Luke's ability to summon his lightsaber while a captive of the wampa in the latter film now takes on new meaning. As a Star Wars adventure, a character study of Luke Skywalker, and a tribute to the Jedi Order that once was, this novel strikes all the right notes.

    8. It seems that the only excuse for this book is to tell how Luke in Ep. V uses the force to grab his lightsaber in Hoth. It implies that he must have been training, somehow, on his own before going to Yoda. And this book explains a little bit about that 'training'. It's nothing more, really. It's very short and anyone can finish it in a couple of hours. Noto's art is great as always. But for a plot, is a thin one, almost feels like a novella. One interesting thing, though, is that it features a c [...]

    9. 5 starsNice to see a Luke Skywalker adventure. Sarco was very interesting. Can't wait to see what happens to Luke in episode 8!!!!!

    10. To check out all my reviews: dancinginth3dark.wordpressAfter reading Smuggler's Run: A Han Solo & Chewbacca Adventure my enthusiasm for Star Wars increased and made me enjoy this new series of EU Books. I really enjoy this book but I am afraid that Han Solo raised the bar in terms of storytelling and action compare to this book. I will admit that for including R2-D2 and C-3PO into this story it felt like I was watching an episode of Star Wars.Since this book is part of Journey to the Force A [...]

    11. That was a fun little read. A short story recounting an adventure had by Luke Skywalker whilst working as a scout shortly after the battle of Yavin. Luke still has much of his farmboy innocence, but is desperate to learn more about the Jedi, the Force, and his father.The framing device of having See Threepio recount the story of Luke's first lightsaber duel to a Resistance X-wing pilot works well, helping to cement Luke's legendary status in the period shortly before The Force Awakens.Suitable f [...]

    12. The Weapon of a Jedi, by author Jason Fry, is a young readers novel described as "A Luke Skywalker Adventure," and is part of the new canon in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Though the story itself takes place following A New Hope, it is told from the point of view of C3PO, Luke Skywalker's protocol droid, to a young Resistance pilot in current Star Wars times. It is intended to go hand-in-hand with the new trilogy of films and part of Disney's effort to keep the Star Wars universe better orga [...]

    13. 3 - 3.5 stars I thought this novel did a better job of emotionally connecting me to the characters than Smuggler's Run: A Han Solo & Chewbacca Adventure did.Fry does an excellent job of capturing the voice and bickering/conversations of C3P0 and R2D2. Very important.Luke is still trying to find his place in the Alliance and trying to further his understanding of the Force and learn how to become a Jedi. It was a worthwhile adventure to see him discover the lost temple of Eedit and learn to c [...]

    14. 3.5 starsI am obviously not the target audience, but, hey, Star Wars! Plus, I am young at heart. XDThis is a simple story set between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back.While on mission, Luke feels the call of the Force which brings him to planet Devaron where old Jedi temple is located. It's a ground forbidden by the Empire, but Luke finds a guide and together with C3PO and R2-D2 goes to explore it. Led by Ben's voice and artifacts found in the temple, Luke learns to trust the Force. When the E [...]

    15. Did I check out all of the new MG Star Wars tie-in novels? Yes, yes I did. Not an intended audience styles that I'm used to reading anymore, but damn do I love Star Wars.

    16. A diferencia de The Heir of The Jedi que se enfoca en explorar el papel de Luke en la resistencia y, finalmente, como héroe, este libro muestra su entrenamiento amateur para convertirse en, lo que él considera, un Jedi. (Ahora que lo pienso tal vez deberían invertir los títulos de los libros).Esta Junior Novel es bastante sencilla en historia pero tiene muchas capas que explorar y se adentra muy bien en la psique de Luke Skywalker. Parece ser un cuento ligero gracias a la presencia de los do [...]

    17. As I picked up the book, I was hoping it would be set between episodes V and VI, cataloguing the building of the green lightsaber, but instead it was set right after episode IV. Still it was certainly fun and even does have that Star Wars feel from the old canon books. Better enjoyment than Han's book and approximately the same as Leia's.Favorite quote:Just a few months before, he'd been a farm boy on Tatooine, fixing vaporators and tinkering with skyhoppers and landspeeders. Now people treated [...]

    18. This is actually one of the better ones I've read. The author definitely understands the character, and the bickering between the droids was absolutely NAILED. The story was even interesting and well-executed.

    19. this book while written fairly well just seems to not have as much depth as what I normally want to see real action and the story was too juvenile even for a young adult book.

    20. Luke Skywalker is the very best boy in the galaxy. C-3PO is possibly the worst droid in the galaxy.

    21. A quick short story which gives us more of Luke's backstory. Great read for any star wars fan.

    22. Днес честта се пада на Люк Скайуокър! Как се пише книга, за герой, чийто живот е вече разказан от раждането му в последните минути на Епизод ІІІ, през книжки и разкази за детството му на Татуин, и буквално стотици комикси и романи, които покриват цялото му житие до дълбоки ста [...]

    23. One of a trio of middle grade books released as part of Force Friday and the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens publishing initiative (the others are Star Wars: Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure and Star Wars: Smuggler's Run: A Han Solo Adventure), Jason Fry's Star Wars: The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure takes place between the events of Episode IV: A New Hope and Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and finds Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, and R2-D2 stranded on a planet that Lu [...]

    24. Here we go again! The Weapon Of A Jedi is the second of three YA novels featuring the protagonists of the original trilogy in that time period while simultaneously seeding characters and locations from the upcoming film. This time we follow Luke Skywalker as he strives alone to figure out his destiny as the last of the Jedi in the wake of the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi.Though he is hailed as a hero by the Rebellion for destroying the dreaded Death Star, Luke Skywalker cannot shake the nagging feeli [...]

    25. Originally posted onFables Library I must say this is the first Star Wars book I have EVER read. I decided to pick it up because I'm super excited for the movie. Unfortunately The Weapon of A Jedi didn't live up to my expectations.When you think Star Wars, you think action. That's not just me, right? Well I thought The Weapon of A Jedi would be pretty eventful.The Weapon of a Jedi, wasn't. Not a lot happened. Luke mostly walked around, found this place and trained. That's the whole book in one s [...]

    26. Возможны спойлеры.Все бы хорошо, если бы не моя самая нелюбимая компонента – неведомая сила, ведущая за собой главного героя. В случае Скайуокера это Сила, услужливо подсказывающая ему площадку для тренировки джедайских навыков. Терпеть ненавижу это очеловечивание высше [...]

    27. Like the other "younger readers" Star Wars books, this one is a quick, exciting story, this time featuring Luke, C-3PO, and R2-D2. It takes place just after the Battle of Yavin, and, like almost every story about Luke, it's about his continued learning to use the Force. It's beginning to feel like any inter-movie story with Luke has to show him finding another Jedi temple and learning a little bit more about Jedi lore or training. Surely sometimes he goes to a planet and doesn't stumble upon a d [...]

    28. This book is part of the new canon and takes place in between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. This help explains how Luke has progressed in the force from when we see him at the end of the first movie and the beginning of the second one. Luke receives a vision from the force and he visits and old Jedi temple where he learns more about the force.I liked the idea of this story as I have always wondered about the gap of Luke's gaining in knowledge of the force. The problem with this book is the [...]
