Yeah, I did read those, actually. They were kinda weird. Confused

I just read them. The part where he tried to see if the Force worked via text messaging to get her to band her head on the moniter was kinda funny.

Boy, finding those is like an easter egg hunt. Nothing specially, but still kind of fun I guess.

I had a history professor who would constantly say, "Movies reflect the times as well as the history" referring to movies based off historical events. He constantly used Ben Hur to show the Romans representing the Nazis of World War II, along with an introduction by the director of the Ten Commandments, which was another example he gave. This demonstration of the Force is no different.

Any story can be well written but not be the best story for me to read (usually Traviss's work does this for me; great author, but not my kind of story). And I fear I'll have to know where this story line goes before I go through anymore disappointment (LotF, Clone Wars, etc.) If need be, I can disappear from here with posts to avoid any awkwardness by my posts, but I have thought about reading Outcast and may just give it some more thought, but I wouldn't bet on me convincing myself to pick it up, even from a library. Then again, who knows what might come along and get me interested (maybe more spoilers from Omen Very Happy )

Okay-the more I read back on parts in Omen and the more I speculate, I am almost positive that Ben will end up with Vestara, but maybye not a lasting relationship. Warning: Incoming Spoilers!!

On page 64 in Omen, it says Ben has green eyes...I thought he has blue ones like his Dad.
It seems like the authors just write Ben however they like him best...I honestly don't know if he has blue or green eyes, or blond or red hair?!?!
