Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones by R.A.Salvatore is based upon the story by George Lucas, on the movie featuring the same title. The novel is placed 22 years before Star Wars Episode IV - A new Hope. The novel does not add much detail in to the known story of the movie, though there are some subtle incidents not to be found in the movie.

The story takes place after 10 years of Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace. Anakin Skywalker is now a Padawan under Obi-Wan.The story starts with an assasination attempt on Senator Amidala. What follows this is a pretty adventurous and shocking investigation by Obi-Wan. The story also deals with the relationship of Padme and Anakin. The story finishes quite dramatically and makes way for the future incidents, to be featured in Star Wars Episode III - The Revenge of the Sith.

For the people who have already seen the movie, the book helps to relive those moments in the movie. Also, the book is very well written. I could not help myself from reading on, even though I have watched the movie nearly five times. A good read for any Star Wars fan.
