Since I saw ROTS I decided it was time to re-read previous Star Wars novels, I have a library of them at home. I'm finding out they're just as good as they were the 1st time I read them. With different insight. I'm not necessarily going in order. I read the Jedi Academy Trilogy 1st to help me cope with what happened in ROTS. I've just ordered a couple of new books that were mentioned on the boards.

Shadow is a good it does bridge over from EP 5 to 6.
I went back & re read for I think the 2 or 3rd time the Young Jedi Knights--I have the whole set & I'm close to completing reading for the 2nd time the Jedi Quest books, there I'm missing 2 at the moment.

Aaaaaah, I really enjoyed the Jedi Apprentice books. Guilty pleasure. The Jedi Quest ones are good - Watson did Anakin and Obi-Wan's relationship very well. I had to get a couple of them on ebay though since they're out of print. Ouch.
I have a few earlier EU books kicking around somewhere but they never made much impression on me. After the prequels came out, some things in the earlier ones look odd. The EU authors just didn't know some things back then. Well, no one knew them.
I'm working on Shadows of the Empire again & got a chuckle out of how Luke felt when he built his 1st lightsaber on his own.
I totally agree. Steve Perry is one of the few SW writers who "gets" Luke (and I know I've ranted about this before, so bear with me). But I really enjoy Luke in SOTE. He's believable, yet still respectable. He still feels like a human being, instead of this wise-beyond-his-years old sage that I can't relate to at all.
When I first started poking around this forum and TJA, SOTE and I, Jedi were the first books I started re-reading.
I mjust picked up 'The Fall Of Diversity Alliance' for the library a few days ago, which is five books in one from the YJK series. Those will always be special to me because Diversity Alliance is the second Star wars EU book I ever read. I LOVE the characters and the story.
Right now I'm about midway through 'Diversity Alliance'. I think this will be the twentieth time I've read that one since age twelve!

I am reading I, Jedi for the first time, and I love the Corran Horn character (sure would like to be that good of a pilot, eh?), but Luke sure leaves a little to be desired. I'm disappointed, but interested to read Shadows of the Empire and a better characterization of him.
Thanks for recommending I, Jedi - very, very interesting and thought provoking. Definitely worth the read.
To love without wanting to possess or influence; to cherish without keeping; to have without holding. It's not something to understand, it's something to strive for.
