I thought it was great. I was kind of disappointed it ended so soon.
Peace is a lie. There is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken.

No it's alot of Plageuis. Most of it is.

It's decent. It's kinda boring at parts because it's ALOT of political talk, which of course I knew would be included.

I was surprised at the amount of focus on Sidious however. Also was quite surprised how far it went, because I thought it would end years before the actual movies.

So is it over then? Can we finally put to bed the whole "killing the master in his sleep" nonsense?..

It made me like Palpatine much more, though, as at first I thought he was a disgrace to the Rule of Two by killing his master in his sleep. Now it is much more evident that Plagueis needed to die, and that Palpatine was far more powerful and smart anyway.

Didn't really need a book to tell you that, but I think a lot of people took the whole "killing his master in his sleep" out of context and so the book cleared that up but ya Palpatine was far more powerful and smart which really is evident by(without reading the book).

1. He found out where his master slept, so already Plagueis failed at hiding and keeping secrets.

2. He couldn't sense his apprentice's intentions, which force sense is a very basic force ability if he couldn't even do that he deserved to die.

But I suppose you are right, I just thought it still was kinda iffy Palpatine just "killed him in his sleep", out of context it sounded very weak.
