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.
From a Certain Point of View - Star Wars
"There isn't a story that won't capture your imagination and make you rethink the chapter of Star Wars in which it happens, make you see the story in a light and question everything you thought you knew about the Rebellion, the Empire and the millions of souls caught in the middle of their conflict. The Force is strong with this one' " * Mass Movement * "From a Certain Point of View is a must read for all Star Wars fans.
