For my Star Wars Book Month celebration, I am going to host a read-a-long of Darth Plagueis. I’d love for you to join me! This question and the comments might have spoilers for Part 1.
Also, I’d like to apologize for my absence lately. I just moved into a new house and life has been more than a little crazy! Our first night here we couldn’t find toothpaste or toothbrushes or hand soap or towels or toilet paper. That is the kind of crazy I’m talking about.
I’ve gotten behind on my posts a little, but I’m going to work hard to catch up. Also I’m starting chapter 11 today so I’m a little behind in reading as well. But I am really liking this book so far.
Today is the second week of the read-a-long. We’ll read part 2 this week. Today’s question is about part 1:
What do you think of Palpatine as a teenager?
I found Palpatine as a teenager very interesting. I thought he’d be wanting to rule the galaxy already and working hard at politics, but that wasn’t the case. He seems like a spoiled rich kid without much ambition. He likes to drive fast and make daddy’s life hard. It seemed like his main motivation to spy in Naboo politics was mainly because his dad wouldn’t want him to. I wonder what changes about him along the way.
