How was it? I thought it was a good book. Not in the category of best books I've ever read and I have no idea how it compares to the other books in the Star Wars universe, but I enjoyed this quick read. Will I read others? Absolutely! I'm a big science fiction fan and a Star Wars fan, so of course I'm going to read more Star Wars books now that I know there's a huge list of them out there.
If you have a science fiction enthusiast in your family who likes to read, consider Star Wars books as a gift, or point your kids to Star Wars books your local library may have.
