I liked these. Much better quality than you might expect from one of these massive-universe collaborations, and it actually explains a few of the things that don't make much sense in the movies, in a way that doesn't feel too retconny. Some of our old friends are a little static, but Zahn introduces new characters that are interesting and fun. I particularly like Thrawn; in a universe that previously has pretty much been all about the Force and Evil Hooded Badguys Who Kick Puppies For Fun, a character that is smart and insightful and focused on winning not cruelty, but has no ability with the Force at all, is a far more interesting baddie.
