Back in the late 80's and early 90's there was the Star Wars movies.

That was pretty much it.

In my small, yet growing town where I grew up, we didn't have much for good books. I didn't know there was a Lando trilogy, and I wasn't really that taken with Brian Daley's Han Solo stories. But I found this book at the library.

This book, and entire series is beyond absurd. It's awful in some ways. Not Jar Jar Binks awful, but awful. But at the time I read it, this was what there was, and I loved it.

I tempted to go for 4 stars with this one, even with its goofiness. It's an impressively compact work with interesting conflicts primarily between the competing villains and interesting character developments (if somewhat far-fetched, even for Star Wars). Sure, the notion of Jabba's dad getting revenge may seem juvenile, but not when you consider what Liam Neeson has been up to lately, movie-wise. The "Jabba's will" plot device is also a bit goofy, but hey, it works fine for complicating the act ...more

A decent continuation of the story. I wouldn't say the writing is much improved, and there are plenty of eye-rolling moments. But, again, these stories are targeted for a younger audience, and they succeed in keeping attention.

This was the last in a trilogy of sub-par Star Wars books meant for the YA audience. It was just really cheezy, like the other two books. It just seemed like they said, "Well, it's for kids so it doesn't have to be that good". There is a certain "revisiting Star Wars characters" coolness to it but that's not worth the lameness.

Next up for reading with my 10-year old is "Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hide" which I've never read before so I'm looking forward to it.

This is my favorite in the Davids Star Wars series. I feel that this book is the truest to form when it comes to trying to catch the feeling of a true Star Wars adventure. With rapid location changes, excellent characters, and humor, this book follows Zorba the Hutt (Jabba's father) as he swears revenge on Lei who murdered his son. Traveling from Tattoine, Bespin, and Yavin Four, you experience a fast paced adventure with a familiar cast.
I read this as a kid, when Princess Leia was my all-time hero(ine) and role model. Today, I remembered having read this book while at a used bookstore. I found myself awed by the amount of Star Wars lit on their shelves, and suddenly realized that I had read one. I also remember reading in an interview with George Lucas that he'd wanted to stay away from names like "Zorba" in the films. Alas.

i love this book
Third small volume in the series concentrates on the father of Jabba: Zorba the Hutt. The plot line with Trioculus continues.

I realize this is a kid's book, but still I was so disappointed. Almost nothing in this story makes any damn sense.
