This was a fun book to read. As a Star Wars fan it was interesting to get stories from the view of other characters in the universe. There were a couple that felt as they dragged on a little but for the most part they were engaging, fun and a few that were tugged at the heart strings. New characters and some old, I would recommend this for any Star Wars fan, die hard enthusiasts or someone that just enjoys the films.
