Format: Paperback
If you are a younger reader who had trouble reading the adult version of Shadows of the Empire(I know I used to!), or a kid who wants to read a great story about Star Wars, this is the book for you. It captures all the fun and excitement of the adult book, but it is easier to read and is shorter. 9Not to mention is says how to pronounce Xizor! In my opinion, this is a great buy!

A Kid's Review on January 7, 2001
Format: Paperback
I recommend this book to readers of all ages that are crazed Star Wars fans. If you don't know what Shadows of the Empire is, it is the story in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
It is mainly about saving Han Solo. I recommend this because each and every paragraph is full of details. My favorite part is where Luke and the rogue sqadron try to hijack a cargo plane containing special computer information. Tring to hijack it, it takes off and they follow it. Then out of nowhere it has a special defense system, half of the rogue sqadron was blown to space dust. That was the high action part. It even tells the action part from two points of view, Luke and the captains.
Again this is a great book for readers of all ages!

Format: Paperback
I really loved this book! I bought it and then
read it 5 or 6 times. One of the reasons I liked
this book was that, something was always happening.
There was never a part that I felt like taking a
break, or getting up for a glass of water. It was
great. I really liked the setting (in between
The Empire Strikes back and Return of the Jedi),
and the way that Prince Xizor was carefully placed
into the storyline. I think this is a must read
book and every one who likes Star Wars should read
it.

I haven't read the adult's version yet, but this junior novelization was really good! I thought the characters were well developed and the plot and story exelant, but I wish it had shown more of Luke's obvios inner development between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Instead it just had him act like he did in The Empire Strikes Back all the way through the book. But despite that I really did love this book and intend to read the adults version as soon as I can.

Format: Paperback
I really love the book. Steve Perry did a good job with the plot. I think having Dash Rendar gave it some humor. Even though the Emperor is on the cover he has basicly no point. I like that it mentions Boba Fett a lot. I liked the part when Dash Rendar said "Okay Goldie. My name is Man With a Blaster About to Cook You." Xizor was a good character to add. He made the plot more complex.
