The book moved at an excellent pace, the humor and drama in just the right places, and the twists and turns make it all the more exciting to read. getting a glimpse into an evil mind and following han in his hilarious and yet suspensful adventure through space.
I liked the interaction between han and leia at the beginning, after the explosions but before the trouble starts. Han being a concerned husband, looking after his wife and his kids. Leia's diplomatic situation was a little boring, but it picked up after a while.
Luke's interaction with the children was adorable, showing his more human side, as an uncle, not just a jedi master.
Han's situation at the asteroid made me laugh out loud, again and again. The whole thing with getting shot in the butt?! HILARIOUS, I thought. A nice touch to the plot; like i said, humor in just the right places.
Kueller (i think his name was) was an interesting aspect of the story, but I hate it when everyone was like, "he's one of the worst threats we have ever faced" because they ALWAYS say that about a new enemy. But when leia ripped off the mask, I felt kind of sad, because he was "just a child".
thi book deserves an A- ! It was funny suspensful and dramatic--everyone should read it, really.
