I've found this series (recommended by my 10 year old) to be interesting. It shows the transformation of a 10 year old boy into the bounty hunter who delivers Han Solo to Jabba the Hut. It shows that no one is all bad and depicts Boba in a sympathic light. It's got some good morals, as all Star Wars stories do, without sugar coating some of the not so nice human emotions and actions. Overall a good book for kids. I don't have any complaints about the language or names used--most Star Wars fans won't be phased by them even if they are kids.

He is a huge Star Wars fan and has lots of encyclopedias of characters, vehicles, creatures, etc. He even has encyclopedias about Lego Star Wars! So when he discovered, at the school library, that there are actual chapter books set in the Star Wars world, he just about flipped! The school library, however, only had a few so I've been buying the ones the library doesn't have. This is the first one we've purchased in e-book format and he loves it. He's been reading it on my Kindle (the original Kindle!) and he got a 7" tablet for Christmas, so he'll finish it on that. I think I may continue the series in e-books as they are so convenient. The only problem is that he's not allowed to take electronics to school yet (4th grade) so he can't read them at school...

I received this book sooner than expected and in better condition than described. I have really enjoyed the reading as well. Gives a nice insight to the life of Boba Fett as he struggles to make a life for himself after his father's death.

My son reads like a maniac, so it is always a challenge to find him books he hasn't read yet! He loves the whole Boba Fett Series. For Star Wars, this series is not really complicated. Some of the other ones are very thick books and the concepts get really deep. The Boba Fett's are quick enjoyable books.

My grandson loves this series of books....but he had not had to do a real book report until he started middle school. His first one was not good but then he decided to do the next one on this book and he got an "A"!

Excellent reading for Star Wars fans! (my grandson is 11)

Although these books are written for a younger set, I've enjoyed reading about the early adventures of Boba Fett and finding out how he becomes the fearsome bounty hunter of the original movies. In general, the books in this series have been pretty good, taking into account the prose and the plots are pretty simple.

This book however, was not very good at all. The plot is simply boring, with none of the suspense or intrigue found in earlier novels. The dialogues are completely uninteresting, even for a juvenile book. And the 'end' isn't really an end, the book simply runs out of pages. It's as if the publishers told Elizabeth Hand she had to write another book right away and it had to be a certain number of pages. All the while I was reading it, the text felt very rushed and unimaginative, which is sad because the other books in this series have actually been somewhat creative.

I hope that the next book in this series is better, otherwise I'll have to skip anymore books that may be published for Boba Fett.
