Plus with paperback, you always get that little something at the back of the book. Wink

I got the book on Wednesday and finished last night. I really want to talk about it too, but it appears only DS and myself have finished. While I wait for spoiler talk to start, I'll get out my short opinion of the book real quick.

Ditto DS. Best Star Wars book I've ever read. Period. One of the best books I've ever read in general. Very Happy Stover is awesome. He just caused me to look at the entire story of SW in a different way, something the entire team that wrote TFU couldn't do. I also hope I don't get anyone's hopes up, but this is how I feel.

I plan to start reading it a second time tonight. I thought about taking a break to let myself think more deeply about it, but I figured the best way to do that is start all over, and read slowly, instead of speeding through as fast as I can because I want to know what comes next. You miss a lot in suspenseful reading. Very Happy

It's impossible to get my hopes too up for Stover. It's Stover, I have the highest of expectations for anything he writes, and I'm feeling the same way towards this novel and can't wait to read it.

Just wanted to remind everyone-- please use spoiler tags until January 29. After that, go crazy!

Okay, I really want to start spoiler talk. However, I think we should leave the big things, like the

until after the 29th. I do have one spoiler question to ask those who have finished.

Agh, I still haven't read it! Ya'll are driving me crazy. I guess I'll have to read it before Wild Space, then. What with school starting, I'm afraid my poor book list (which I was finally caught up on) is going to get terribly backlogged again. *sniff*

I finished the novel a few days back and absolutely loved it. I started it a bit later then everyone else so I kept seeing all these polls asking what you thought of Mindor and so many of the options were "Best Star Wars book ever, absolutely amazing, etc." At that point, the book seemed fairly average to me. And then I kept reading and pace kept growing and growing and growing and it never stopped. Absolutely fantastic.


I do have a pair of interesting theories based on the beginning and end of the novel. Hope you enjoy it. Putting it in spoiler tags, just in case.

Iron Fist, that is a great theory! Do you mind if I read the first one on EUCast this week?

I'm only on Chapter 9 but so far, I don't really like it. I'm hoping it'll get better as it goes along, but for now it doesn't strike me as his best work.

For me at least, the book only picked up speed as it went along. Hopefully it will for you as well.
