Of course a few appear more than once, where their identity changed (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, etc.). About the only omission are the individual Podracers, who (aside from the dastardly Sebulba) are all featured on one page. And some entries are on pages with a black, rather than white, background (and not necessarily signifying evil vs. good), which makes them a bit harder to read.
No matter; this is an indispensable reference to "Star Wars" fans, young and old. But it only applies to the six movies of the saga; characters from "Clone Wars" are featured in their own book, and characters from the "extended Universe" are not here, either. But if you want to know more about General Grievous, Sy Snootles or Zam Wesell, they're all in here!
Yep, authentic is a word that only describes a 'real' Star Wars character that is true to the film or books. In this case, this is 200 pages of detailed research complete with pictures, and basic character data such as homeworld, affiliation, species, height, appearance and references. A brief character bio accompanies each page. For some of the entries, one paragraph is more than enough, while others it is too little.
I appreciate the format, size, and intent of the book.
Back to my kids, for anyone wishing to learn more about who inhabits the Star Wars world, or wants to role play with accuracy, this is the real deal.
You may have no problem with the depictions of "Lyn Me" and "Oola", but I just thought that parents of young children (young boys in particular) might want to know.
Otherwise, this is a great book!
