Overall a good book for kids.
P. Curry
They would have to have a Star Wars encyclopedia handy for every fourth or fifth word.
Richard Harris
The dialogues are completely uninteresting, even for a juvenile book.

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.

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.

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 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)
