I'm not famiiar with the EU but I'm wondering what the names of the kids are.

Jaina and Jacen Solo (twins, born in The Thrawn Trilogy, Hier To The Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command.) and Anakin Solo (from the comic Dark Empire 1, Dark Empire 2, and Empire's End).

Can i still get those novels at B&N ?

Most likely, but check Amazon.com first. They might have used editions of the books. I have ordered used copies and they were alot cheaper than retail and in just as good of shape.

I have been collecting figures since 95 but never got into the novels or EU but some of the people in this site said that the writting on those novels is better than the one on the prequels

I hadnt read any books until recently either, about the past year or so. The Zahn trilogy is awesome. It is seen here (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-form/102-5835552-1858558) . The books are listed as 4 and 5. Thaere is also a third one called The Last COmmand. I am now reading The Hand of Thrawn series(Spectres of the past and Visions of the Future.) SO far they are really good. I have also read Tales of The Bounty Hunter which was decent and Shadow Hunter. Shadow Hunter is about Darth Maul and takes place directly before EP1. Check those out, I think you would like them.

Rocketboy, I oculd easily argue that. Yes, it was a very good stroy, but the words used, and way it was worded...felt like I was reading a VERY long Jedi Apprentice or Jedi Quest book...played down.....

Rocketboy
03-26-2004, 01:07 PM
True, but in my opinion, Shadows of the Empire was the only novel that truly captured the feeling of a Star Wars movie.
The few others I've read just didn't feel like Star Wars to me. Know what I mean?

Yeah, not every book felt like a true SW movie, but I still think others fit this. Han Solo trilogy by A.C Cripson, Courtship of Princess Leia, I, Jedi, and even the Thrawn Trilogy to me...

I agree with KH, anything by Zahn is a must read. In fact, I would recommend reading in this order:

Shadows of the Empire
Heir to the Empire
Dark Force Rising
The Last Command
Rogue Planet
Specter of the Past
Vision of the Future
Vector Prime (thru the entire NJO Serires ending with The Unifying Force)

But that's just my recommendation. There are other great novels out there, but the big story arc over the last few years has really been the NJO serires, which I feel really starts with Specter of the Past. ;)

Card Dreamer
03-27-2004, 12:08 PM
Sith Killer, I always fel NJO Started with Rogue Planet... :)

Other Great books to read are the X-wing series
Shatterpoint (hints of NJO are in it)
Han Trilogies
and Survivor's Quest

I dont know if SOTE has a hard cover since I never read it. I doknow the Zahn trilogy and Hand of Thrawn series is hard cover because I read those. Dont worry too much abut the cover, it is the story that counts IMO. :beard:

Card Dreamer
03-27-2004, 10:32 PM
While I agree it IS the story that counts, I can relate to wanting hardcover. They are just nicer to have in a book collection, imo. And yes, SotE had a hardcover version.

Kidhuman

I am frugal(sp?) so I would perfer the paperback. Plus my step son likes tolook at them, soif he happens torip it, it wont cost too much toget a newer one. :) :beard:

oh yes, I can definately relate to that Trust me, I have tons of paperbacks :D Nothing wrong with them. I just prefer the look of the hardback if I have the choice. But I agree, definately pluses to paperback as well. Aside from the cheaper cost for replacing, it's the only printed form of getting the SW eBooks...

And yes, SotE had a hardcover version.When I have a hardcover book I'm going to read multiple times, such as Shadows and the novelizations, I'll a paperback, so I can take it with me. Hardcovers are nice, but can be tough to carry around.

Well now that we've got the kids' names sorted, this topic has moved toward appreciation of the EU books. Always a good topic. I like to buy the hardcover of books I'm planning on keeping. I did by Shadows of the Empire in harback when it came out, and I bought the novelizations of both prequel movies in the hardcover editions as well. Those are the only Star Wars hardcovers I have. I have around 10 paperbacks of EU novels, of which I've read approximately 1/2. I did like the Thrawn Trilogy, but didn't like Kevin Anderson's Trilogy that came out shortly after. Courtship of Leia was alright, as was Splinter in the Mind's Eye. I didn't particularly care for the NJO book I read - the one where Chewie bites it at the end (the only reason I bought the book was to see how he kicked off). I had a hard time creating a good Yuuzhan Vong visual for myself (as I did with the Sssii Ruuk reading the courtship of Leia). My preference is for them to use established Lucasian alien groups, as my own creations don't mesh well with the established stuff. Not sure why.

I would recommend to anyone that they read the novellizations of the movies. Those are my favorite books by far.

Card Dreamer
03-28-2004, 12:46 AM
(as I did with the Sssii Ruuk reading the courtship of Leia).
Actually, that was truce at Bakura ;)

I have just about ALL the SW books, minus the Galaxy of Fear serious, half of the YJK books, the misc ep1 journals, and the third hardback of the Dark Forces books. Everything else I have and have bought a hardback of if possible (I have 29 SW hardbacks so far).

and and yes, to whom the poster before me was (forgot the name when I hit Quote for this post). Chewie dies, but this is OLD news and I would think is no longer a spoiler. It was on news channels and was a really big to do. Trust me, he goes out with a bang!

Not the EU arguement again. :rolleyes:

So what constitutes EU...in your opinion?

The Radio Drama?
Novels?
The Holiday Special?
The Ewoks Movie?
The Droids Cartoons?
The Ewoks Cartoons?
Comics?
The Clone Wars Cartoons?

What about the novels of the movies themselves?

Rocketboy

What about the novels of the movies themselves?The EU argument will probably never end.

What is EU and what isn't will vary from person to person.
I think if it's not in the movies, it's EU, no matter what it is.
I feel some is much better (Clone Wars) than others (any post-ROTJ era novels).

Different strokes...

Kidhuman
03-28-2004, 07:52 PM
Well with Clone Wars characters beingin the movies(EP3) I believe it willbe canon and not EU. Lucas ok'd these stories and all and even his film company produced them. In that sense he oversaw the production of these shorts.

Card Dreamer
03-28-2004, 08:50 PM
Actually, Lucas has to approve all storylines. He might not go over every detail (and really, with all he's got going, who would have time?) but he has to approve the overall story on each one. Lucas and/or Lucasfilm all gave these books/comics/games aprroval. Wether one likes them or not, well, that's their right and I don't dispute that (heck, everything I think of Children of the Jedi, I reconsider my standing ;) )but the FACTS are, they are ALL Canon (unless offcially stated others) and there's nothing one can do about it. Take it or leave it certainly, but don't spread your denial of it when there's no justification for it. Again, it's not a matter of opinion. It's a matter of FACT.

Just keep in mind I don't say this to be mean or start problems. I just really don't see what the argument is or WHY there's one. Lcas okayed it. Get over it. No one says everyoone has to accept it (I know quite the few who would rather not) and that's totally cool. Like I said, there are expamples of work that serious make me want to rethink my acceptance of them :D

CaptainSolo1138
03-28-2004, 10:34 PM
Let me better express my argument. I like some EU stuff. I agree with Rocketboy that SOTE is the best SW tie-in as far as expanded universe is concerned. I enjoyed all the tales books (Cantina, Jabba's Palace, Bounty Hunters). They provided interesting stories. And for me that's all they were. IMO, if it didn't happen in a movie, it's not Star Wars. Boba Fett was never Dengar's best man. Just some dude who got whacked by a blind guy.

Card Dreamer
03-28-2004, 10:41 PM
Okay, I understand your side a little better. And like I said, if you just found them to be interresting, but no big deal, then okay, that's fine. But your opinion of them being canon and the FACT of them being canon are too different things. If you're gonna state something like
Boba Fett was never Dengar's best man. Just some dude who got whacked by a blind guy. Then you need to say something to the effect of "As far as I'm concerened." or, as I'm glad to see that you did, say IMO.

It's when that isn't said there's a prob.

Anyways, that's my 5 cents (sorry, no refunds)

CaptainSolo1138
03-28-2004, 11:46 PM
Uhhhh...I'm pretty sure I didn't ask. Did I miss the part where we weren't entitled to our own opinions anymore without coming under scrutiny?! Whether or not their "real" doesn't matter to me. I don't like most of them.

General Madine liked Froot Loops. There, I just added something to the EU. It's stupid though, right? But it's "true" and "canon" if somebody writes it into the expanded universe.

And if you noticed that I did say "IMO", why did you waste a post? That's a rhetorical question by the way. Keep the nickel.

03-29-2004, 12:15 AM
Whoa let's leave it at great entretaining reading. If you don't believe that it happen so be it, I just think ( although i have not read any except SOTE) that they complement our imagination, and give us an other portal to get involve in the universe we all love :D

I guess my arguement with the Clone Wars is more canon than thew rest. It has been mentioned in the OT on a few occasion. All of the rest is characters and there journeys after the movies have ended. We seen it start in AOTC and it ends with the beginning of EPIII. Iaccpet it more as canon than Idoany other books. It also makes for some great TV watching.

It's a great show. But I think that Lucas pretty much had no choice but to start the Clone Wars in AOTC and end them in Episode 3. It's pretty tough, hell, it's impossible to show this entire and supossedly epic war that we've only briefly heard about (back in the OT) in only 2 movies.
This seems like a story that could only be told in the EU. (That, and it seems pretty convienent way to make even more money. ;))
So in this case, I think the EU actually helps the movies by giving us more of the backstory, the history.
One of my biggest problems with most of the EU is the stuff takes place after Jedi. To me, the post-Jedi stuff doesn't feel like Star Wars and doesn't really add anything to the Star Wars mythos. It's like watching the Batman & Robin of Star Wars and the New Jedi Order stuff is George Clooney.
