Also, sometimes reading the worst can be a hilarious couple hundred pages.

Even having sworn off the EU long before the latest announcement, I am still intrigued enough by the legendary suckage of that book, that I might pick it up sometime.

They sure won't. Whenever I have read that posted, though, the implication is that crying over canonicity is ridicilous, cause the books are still there. With the further implication being that their primary value is the same as other books, namely quality. So I found satisfaction in 2B likening them to fan fiction. Simple as that.

Quote:
I suspect I'm one of the "quality" people you were referring to, and I will highlight that quality was never the true purpose, but you can't deny it's an influencing factor. I will buy Star Wars books that are good, and not Star Wars books that are bad. You're right though that I don't "buy good books that happen to be Star Wars."

By admitting this, I'm not sure you do fit into that category, actually. Only barely, if so.

Does it help if I say I read a lot of TFN, so my generalities about fandom is more likely to come from there with their massive posting advantage, than anything said over here?


Points taken, and I appreciate the clarifications.

Again, I'll echo the Xwing series. I would recommend reading those after Thrawn.

They are great fun. Lots of action, really great interesting characters. With the exception of Wedge, you are mostly dealing with characters who did not appear in the films and so you really get the chance to know these characters and spoiler alert, not everyone is safe.
