As has been mentioned already, it's not necessary to play KotOR or KotOR II to understand Revan (it has enough reminders of what happened in the games to make it reasonably easy to pick up). But having said that KotOR is one of the best RPG's I've ever played and if you get a chance to play it first I would.

You mean the novelist who wrote KOTOR and worked heavily on TOR? The one who created the Revan character and his story?

You do realize that without that particular author, nearly every game that Bioware has released would not be remotely as good as they are, right? Writer for Neverwinter Nights and Jade Empire. Lead Writer for KOTOR (Revan is his character), Mass Effect and co-lead writer for ME2.

I thoroughly enjoyed Revan myself. I had a bit of a concern with the pacing in a couple of spots, but outside of that, it was a good read. As for the comment that most of the book was about the Sith character portrayed, for the first half of the book, the chapters alternated between Revan and Scourge and, after Revan's dropping out for a few chapters, Meetra (The Exile) took his place until he more completely rejoined the story. And, frankly, Revan doesn't completely leave the story after the first half. (Deliberate vagueness due to not wanting to spoil the story for those who may not have read it.)

You are, of course, entitled to your opinion and I respect that. However, it might be more respectful to let others make their own decision whether or not to pick up the book, give it a read and form their own opinions...as that's really the only opinion that matters.

the novelist may have been good once upon a time but rewritting the eitire lore of kotor pretty much .... not cool

What do you mean re-writing?...All he did was tell the story of Revan up to where the game is, he didn't go back and re-write things.

It's also his character, and his to develop, despite what personality and traits you had invented for him in your mind.
