Obi-Wan Kenobi: Ramblings of a Crazy Old Hermit

230 pages3 hours


Keeping the child of your arch nemesis safe from harm is not without its drawbacks, especially when doing so forces you to relocate to a hostile desert world with two suns.

This is the satirical saga of Obi-Wan Kenobi during his first five years on Tatooine. "Ben" often contemplated how he went from being a superstar Jedi stud, to that of a glorified babysitter. Feeling unfulfilled with the direction his life has taken, he turns to the solace of his journal. In those pages he can finally be himself, a sarcastic and uncensored bitter old hermit.

Ben hoped to live out the rest of his days in quiet seclusion. But then his life was invaded by temperamental Tuskens, foul mouthed former Jedi, long dead friends, clumsy bounty hunters, big fat Hutts, hippie Wookiees, insane Sith, and a new lover with a jealous husband. The Clone Wars were a vacation compared to the Ramblings of a Crazy Old Hermit.

This project started out as a simple spoof posted on a Star Wars fan page on Facebook. As the entries became longer and the storylines more complex it slowly evolved into a weekly blog, and eventually had hundreds of followers. Now, a year later, this book is a compilation of all those journal entries.
