When I started the project of reading the Star Wars Expanded Universe books, I was unclear as to whether I would include on my reading list the YA or intermediate reader EU books in addition to those targeted at adult readers. Reading this omnibus edition of three books ("The Glove of Darth Vader," "The Lost City of the Jedi" and "Zorba the Hutt's Revenge") has not really helped me with that decision . . .

These books are ostensibly targeted at readers 9 to 12 years of age, but it is hard to env

These are the dumbest books, that make no sense in the star wars world even taken as a stand alone story.

The series was for children and published in 1992-1993. Each book contains a dubious cast of characters, illustrated fully but not well, and concludes with a strange little "glossary," which in the real world would be "an alphabetical list of technical terms in some specialized field of knowledge," but for Mr. and Mrs. Davids, it is a place to cover the cast of characters for a third time.

The titles of the complete series are The Glove of Darth Vader, The Lost City of the Jedi, and Zorba the Hut

Ugh.
See, when Disney decided to burn the Expanded Universe, I grew sad. I also got into s verbal arguments about whether or not the EU was contradictory. The fact is, this is one of those books that I would be perfectly happy having jettisoned from the canon. By a cannon.
Let's start with the Force. It is quite clear that the author doesn't know how the Force works. Trioculus thinks Vader's glove will allow him to Force Choke, then has things installed so he can make people's brains melt. Also,

I read this book of short stories when I was young and, at times the plots got a little hokey, but overall I really liked them. The Lost City of the Jedi was my favorite. The idea of a city where the Jedi went to hide was intriguing. Of course, these stories came out before the prequels, so comparing that to what happened in the films sometimes makes for some quirky results.

It was interesting.
I am a big fan of Star Wars and this picked up after Return of the Jedi.
It wasn't awesome, but it does continue the story.
The love story between Princess Leia and Han Solo is really cheezy.
This definitely would not make a good movie at all, too much cheese.
But is was fun.
I will look for more in this series just for the heck of it.

In this book there are 3 different stories that all connect to the original star wars movie plot. The first out of the three stories i thought was pretty good, but when it came to the second story is was kind of boring to me since the part i stopped was a struggle for me to get there.

Read these for campy laughs rather than a good story.
