As for what are the best Star Wars Books ... I think most will agree that "The Thrawn Trilogy" is the best set. The titles are "Heir To The Empire", "Dark Force Rising", & "The Last Command". They were brilliantly written by Hugo Award winning author Timothy Zahn. In truth it is these three books that re-awakened the Star Wars Saga. I usually don't give much weight to what the "critics" say about things but these books had rave reviews ... one said, and I agree totally with him, that these books captured the essence of the Star Wars story so well that you can almost hear John Williams soundtrack playing in your mind as you read the books ... rare truth from a critic ... lol ... "The Last Command" is one of only a few books that I have read cover to cover in one sitting ... I just couldn't put that book down until I had finished it. The series is set 5 years after the events of ep VI. A New Republic has taken power in the galaxy and driven the remnants of the Empire to backwater regions of the galaxy. Han & Leia are married and expecting their first children ... twins. Luke is struggling with his role as the only Jedi in the galaxy and trying to find info on the old Jedi Order all the while trying to figure out how to rebuild the Jedi Order. Zahn introduces a ton of new characters that will play major roles through out the other books of the Star Wars EU ... Mara Jade, Talon Karrade, Captain Pelleaon and of course ... Grand Admiral Thrawn ... the last living member of Palpatine's 12 Grand Admirals. I could babble on for quite a while about these books but I'll save you the boring dribble and just say if you want to read a great Star Wars story that fits in perfect with the movies then this is the one to read.
