    I’ve never read a Star Wars book before so I don’t know if this one is pretty typical for how it goes but I really enjoyed it It was far grittier than I expected and the combat was described with surprising realism The commandos faced hunger fatigue bad intel all on top of the actual fighting This wasn’t like the movie where a single Jedi can take down an entire regiment of droidsHere we had 4 regular men and a y

    Talk about not judging a book by its cover Neither the title nor the cover art prepared me for this beautiful story full of well rendered thoughtfully constructed 3 dimensional characters and an at times heartbreaking at times funny adventure You don't have to have played the game this is a tie in to in order to

    This is my first contact with the star wars expanded universe and this is a very good story with some profound deepness within although there’s something off that will not allow it to be a five star book Between the star wars and

    I'll admit all of the drama surrounding Karen Traviss has steered me away from these books I've heard that she's ridiculously anti Jedi and makes them out to be villains and her track record of writing military fiction has made me think the RC books wouldn't be my favorites in the world However while this is only my first exposure I think this book is truly phenomenal The Clone Wars does a lot to show off how individualized clones really ar

CHARACTERS Star Wars Republic Commando Hard Contact

Nce Etain admits to her woeful inexperienceFor the separated clone commandos and stranded Jedi a long dangerous journey lies ahead through hostile territory brimming with Trandoshan slavers Separatists and suspicious natives A single misstep could mean discovery and death It’s a virtual suicide mission for anyone–anyone except Republic Commandos. Star Wars novels are my preferred brand of junk food reading I don t use that term because there s anything wrong with them I used to consume them multiple times weekly But it s franchise tie in fiction I know roughly what to expect and I know there s a good chance I ll enjoy it which makes it a good pick for cold rainy weekends Hard Contact is interesting because its a deviation from the ol Light vs Dark Jedi vs Sith conflict Set shortly after the battle of Geonosis it follows a suad of four Republic Commandos special ops Clone Troopers It s a decent mil SF book but the real conflict here is moral The clones think the Jedi are infallible the Jedi don t know what to do about this brainwashed army they ve been handled You get to read this on both sides There s also the backstory of the clones themselves with some fairly well done character voicesBy far the greatest reason I can recommend this is that it takes the whole clone wars situation seriously It s easy not to think about it too hard in the movies and the Clone Wars TV series though entertaining fails to hit the correct tone This though is gritty without being gratuitous and unflinchingly serious about what it takes to make a clone army and what the results would beA few minor issues1 Jacket description says chemical weapon book contents say nanovirus Execution is iffy either way Basically it s a doomsday macguffin2 No matter how brutal the training the clones went through was you cannot convince me that Niner didn t know how to scream These guys are still human that s a major point of the book even3 The antagonist has got a couple of hangups over the idea of going soft especially with regard to women He spends a lot of time reassuring himself that he s still a brutal shabuir of a Mandalorian even if he didn t kill somebody4 There are a couple things that really haven t aged well mainly an unfortunate shortening of Trandoshan and specism re the alien Weeuay charactersAction y junk food for a rainy weekend Recommended to Star Wars fans interested in mixing things up a little

As the Clone Wars rage victory or defeat lies in the hands of elite suads that take on the toughest assignments in the galaxy–stone cold soldiers who go where no one else would to do what no one else could On a mission to sabotage a chemical weapon research facility on a Separatist held planet four clone troopers operate under the very noses of th. When is a Star Wars novel not a Star Wars novel That seems to be one of the uestions raised by Republic Commando Hard Contact On the surface it very much seems to be one you have a group of Commando clone troopers trying to rescue a young Jedi from a Mandalorian warrior and the Clone Wars are very actively happening in the background of the novel s action Despite these surface similarities however the novel bears very little in common with the rest of the Star Wars universe and what is the house style of the EU Expanded Universe novels in general If a few names and titles had have been changed this could have very easily been an original fiction title rather than a tie in novel For all of the stories that have been written in the Star Wars universe most of them have focused very heavily on the Star portion of the title with little if any focus done on the Wars part Hard Contact changes that by delivering a story of military sci fi focusing on an elite group of Commando clonesThroughout the course of the novel Traviss does a very good job of developing all of her clone soldiers as distinct individuals In other parts of the Clone Wars saga the clones exist or less as cyphers in addition to sharing a genetic code it appeared that they all shared a character or lack thereof One of the themes that Traviss explores is the idea of finding both a culture and an individual identity and the difficulties that would be associated with that when there are millions of others who share both your physical form and most of your personal past returnreturnI generally try not to be a snob when it comes to liscenced material but in the past year I ve read a few that were really a chore to get through Hard Contact is the exact opposite of that with or without the Star Wars name attached to it it was a really enjoyable piece of fiction writing
