    Can this book still be found at Wal-Mart?

    It depends on the WM. The ones in my area never carried it, but it's worth checking out.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Finally finished TG this week. I must be a tough Star Wars EU critic, because I was disappointed in it. Good points:
    - Thrawn as a shadowy background villian.
    - Chewbacca back to form!
    - Stormtroopers who aren't Stormgoofers.
    Poorer points:
    - Too much "let's fill in minor gaps using movie dialogue." This was good at the beginning, but it's getting out of control now.
    - Everybody knows everybody, everybody trusts everybody.
    - Battles too drawn out.
    - Shmi's journal seems too obvious a clue (data skips, eh?), and the "why didn't Luke know about this later" just reaks of continuity errors (so Planet of Twilight was a waste of time ).

    I don't know. SW stories are getting weak lately, except the young adult books. NJO is ending (yippee), but that leaves a void. Never thought I'd be sad to see it go.

    I got the paperback of Tat. Ghost since I'm a cheapskate, but also because often there are e-books included in book form. This one has "A Forest Apart," a Chewbacca story that's about 50-60 pgs long. Only issue I have with the tale is that they say Lumpy is 11 years old. (He's Chewie's and Malla's son) I thought he was older than that; guess not.

    I thought it was Star Wars-lite. A different tone and pace compared to other SW novels out there. Compared to some of the other SW novels I'd heard, it was a nice change of pace.

    I borrowed it from the library.
