at first I was trying to keep character consistency with the movies, imagining the lines in their voices and such. but that was exhausting. so I just decided to read it without trying to attach all that and just enjoy it. and I did.

I'm a star wars nerd, and this develops and continues the star wars universe beautifully. I enjoyed it. ( )

Zahn is amazing. This trilogy will always be canon to me. ( )

In my search for another set of Star Wars books as good as the Darth Bane trilogy, I had this trilogy recommended to me multiple times on several different occasions. I found it to be very disappointing. Naturally, it's more about re-hashing Leia, Han, and Luke, which I'm already sick of, than Grand Admiral Thrawn. Speaking of which, I thought I would love Thrawn, but I found him vastly less interesting than I thought I would. Maybe it's just because we mainly ever see him from a third person perspective, or maybe it's because, like I said, he doesn't get enough time because he's being upstaged by the characters who have already been in the movies. That, and he doesn't seem to be capable of any emotion beyond cool, arrogant aloofness. If I had a nickel for every time Thrawn is described as saying something "cooly," I could go buy another book.

Second time through, thanks to Mando, and still holds up as what the expanded Star Wars universe always should have been. ( )

I hated the Expanded Audio Edition of this book. Timothy Zahn interrupts far too many times to give background information. This makes getting into the rhythm of narrators narration impossible. I hope to give a better review of the story when there is no outside commentary . ( )
