This is definitely the very first next book or SW item I'm buying. All the rest is going to have to be put on hold Very Happy

I know this is a small thing but it annoyed me with the Jedi Path aswell; the writing isn't in Aurebesh. I know it's really nit-picky and I can sort of accept the main text being in English, but the side notes by the characters not being in Aurebesh bothers me.

How would you read it? I mean, I'd personally find it very annoying if I had to translate the text.

I'd find it incredibly annoying, but it would make more sense Wink . I can read Aurebesh quite well, but sometimes forget certain letters, but can usually work out the context.

I agree. It would make it more interesting. Also, once you get used to the aurebesh letters it is quite easy to read.

I don't think they'll ever publish a book that forces it's (new) readers to learn a strange alphabet.
As for me, a few sentences on the side in aurebesh could be fun, but I'm glad the main text isn't.

I agree with Ree'dius

+I read stuff in Aurebesh at least 10 times slower than in Basic.

I loved how Karen Traviss's books have the glossary in the back to help teach you Mando'a

The thought of the characters writing in Aurebesh hadn't occurred to me. I'm assuming that they ARE but I'm able to translate it so flawlessly I can't tell. Laughing

You mean 10 times slower than in English, right? Wink

This has to go in the You Know You're A Star Wars Fan When thread!

Anyway, I would have liked it to have been in Aurebesh, it would have been very cool, but I don't think it would have done as well as it did (I'm presuming it sold well, since they've made the Book of Sith) if people had a hard time reading it.
