I definitely feel that this trilogy as an all deserves a full four stars, for, if nothing else, the pure enjoyment I got out of reading it. Isn't that what Star Wars books are for? While the writing style was not as great as many of the others, considering how early on it written, this author made surprisingly few continuity mistakes. How was he to know at this time that the word for a popular stimulative drink in the Star Wars universe is "caf" and not "coffeine"? However, if these small details really bother you, than stay away from this trilogy at all costs. As for the story, some parts of it are silly, but overall Lando was portrayed flawlessly, as was his irritating little companion. So,if you're an experienced Star Wars fan, and have read at least enough of the mainstream books to know the basic storyline, then yeah, these books are fun to read, but if you're just starting out, wait a while on these.
