"The Free-Flight Dance Dome was a first-class trough. It was equipped with a top-of-the-line gravity field, its console visible among the bottles, spigots, and taps, and other paraphernalia encircled by the bar. The field permitted the management to alter gravity anywhere on the premises, and so the dance floor and the dome over it had become a low-gee acrobatic playground in which singles, couples, and groups looped, floated, and spun with effortless grace. Han also spotted individual booths and tables where species from low-gravity worlds were taking their ease in comfort, the specific gravity of their area having been lowered for them."

I'm sorry, book. It's not you, book, it's me.

This promised fun but instead the story got lost on me. I just could not get interested in it.
It was all: gun smuggling, blah, blah, battle scene, blah, blah, quipping with female, blah, blah, getting attached to droid, blah blah...

I have no idea what I read. However, I am putting this down to the fact that sci-fi just is not my bag. At all. Not interested.

This edition contains three stories / books, but I only read At Stars' End, as part of a bingo challenge. ( )

A fun read with lots of action; this action is described in such detail that it's as if the book is trying to make you literally see it like a movie. ( )

I liked these stories well enough. I don't have much experience reading the Star Wars EU books, so I can't judge these stories as compared to the rest. I felt these were solid, yet run of the mill adventure stories. The biggest (and some may say only) thing they have going for them is Han Solo. He is pretty close to how I think he should be portrayed in the book, with no major out of character moments that I can recall.

I'll give it 3 stars because it wasn't anything special but I still enjoyed reading them. ( )

OK, so it's just adventure, and somewhat campy adventure at that ... I like it anyway. In each of these stories, which take place in the years before Episode IV, you see traces of the buried altrustic streak that prompted Han to stick around and intervene at the Death Star. (I hope that's not a spoiler for anyone.) ( )
