Right now I'm about 3/4 of the way through Shatterpoint by Matthew Stover. So far I think it's crap. Seriously, it's probably one of the absolute worst Star Wars books I've read. I find myself really not caring what happens at all. I don't know if it's due to the author's inadequate writing or the character of Mace Windu itself. Either way, I'm having a hard time motivating myself to finish this one....

The problem was, the author wasn't writing Mace Windu... they were writing Sam Jackson. It was pretty obvious with that initial shower scene where he beats the dude even though he doesn't have his "robes."


I just finished the latest Fate of the Jedi book "Omen." I'm still digging Ben Skywalker as a character in this series. It's actually the main draw. I do wish someone would off Daala already. I'm tired of baby emperor running around. The government story has hardly changed over the years. Let's see something new. I keep waiting for it to show signs of moving toward the "future" we have in the Legacy comic book series. Several of the pieces are there, but they seem to be taking their sweet time making the plunge.

Vestara is an interesting character. Also, this one definitely ended on a cliffhanger. Unfortunately I made the mistake of reading the "back-cover" synopsis of the next one on Amazon and it destroyed the anticipation for me. Oh well.

Wish they would solve the crazy Jedi thing soon though. That subplot is starting to wear on me.

Because I love romance, I liked The Courtship of Princess Leia. I also liked the Young Jedi series.

I've been on a break from Star Wars for a couple months. I'm thinking I may have to venture back into the universe with lightsabers pretty soon....Backlash is sitting in my "to read" stack.

I really enjoyed the Darth Bane trilogy. It got me back into Star Wars after falling out of it for a while.

I just finished the Darth Bane trilogy myself. I do hope they continue the story, especially with the enigmatic ending.

Finally got to borrow my dad's Kindle to read the Lost Tribe of the Sith novellas. I wouldn't really recommend them as stand alone works. You have to be really into Fate of the Jedi to really know what's going on. It also requires a bit of knowledge regarding ancient Sith history.

Guess I'll have to look to other things for a while since the next Fate of the Jedi book isn't coming out for quite a while.

The Han Solo trilogy was the first one I ever finished. Still love it.

My favorite Star Wars book has to be Shadows of the Empire.

Oh also my friend turned me onto this Iphone/Itouch app called SW Books. It's a app spreadsheet that gets constantly updated with all the Star Wars books. It's great you can go through and add all the books that you have read or own weather it's in ebook form, audio form or physical form. This app is perfect for the Star Wars book collector like myself and has saved me from buying duplicates many of times. Oh and the Star trek book app comes out sometime in the fall too! Very Happy

Just look up Star Wars in the App store and scroll down til you see Star Wars books/SW books.

this past week I've been at home sick from work so I've read about 9 Star Wars books in the last 7-10 days. I found a new favorite though, Death Star by Michael Reeves and Steve Perry. Something about this story really hooked me!

Death Star was GREAT! I read that when it came out. Loved it! It's definitely one of my favorites.

I'm hoping to get Fate of the Jedi: Vortex from my wife for Christmas... been waiting to reading for a while now. This series has been really strong and made me really love Ben Skywalker as a character. I'm intrigued by the Sith girl flirtation, and kind of hope that they don't go with the Skywalker-redeems-a-chick story line... but at the same time, I'd like Ben to have something go his way for once.

I tried to read The Old Republic: Alliance, but I couldn't get through the first chapter. It's like they completely ignored their setting. It felt like a regular, post-Endor Star Wars novel and not a thousands-of-years-before Yavin book. I might give it another try, but I just don't like them using things just because they are cool when they don't fit in the setting. Sheesh... I sound like one of those really annoying ultra-nerds.

Yeah I've really liked the Fate of the Jedi series so far. At first it was a little hard to get into since it's only Ben and Luke. (I think the whole family dynamic since Mara's death hasn't been right) I agree that Ben Skywalker is a great character, it's almost like he's the character Luke should have been in Episode IV.
I have the Old Republic book too, haven't cracked it open yet. I've heard that it was really good, but that some people didn't like it because it wasn't the same "old republic" as it was in the Darth Bane books.

I wasn't very impressed with it.

Just re-read the Republic Commando series. What a great series. Makes me even more pissed off that Karen Traviss will not be returning to pen the final Imperial Commando novel. Also pissed that Lucas pretty much took a dump on everything Mandalorian that Traviss created.

Right? We should be seeing tons of Mando-related stuff in the Clone Wars animated series!

I've really only read the "Tales of..." anthologies (...Mos Eisley, ...Jabba's Palace, ...the Bounty Hunters) but I liked them very much.

I think Tales of the Bounty Hunters was the first EU novel I read. You should read the Thrawn Trilogy... you'll be hooked.
