The whole novel seems to coast through, never raising the tension too much or hitting a real climax. It promises the reader a more intimate view inside Han and Leia's marriage - what that means is we get to see them bicker (neato!). Leia also gets to gain some insight on Anakin Skywalker before his transformation into Darth Vader - that means the reader has to rehash a lot of the Phantom Menace, which we had to suffer through but Leia did not. A lot of the novel wants to poke the reader and say, "See, details of the Phantom Menace are relevant to other characters too, neato!"
Now as critical as I am, it was certainly not the worst Star Wars novel I've ever read (Planet of Twilight, I'm looking in your direction), but it wasn't the best either. It's just ok. Not exciting, not too important in the greater story, just ok.
I must be getting old, but for a book that focuses entirely on one planet, with a small number of active characters and only a handful of "bad guys" this for me was one of the books of the year.
The search for an oil painting that was an Alderaanian treasure, the ghost of a legendary Jedi, and the opportunity to get inside the head of one of the most beautiful characters ever created.
This all adds up to a great way to relax and revisit our old friends in their eternal battle against evil.
I hereby nominate George Lucas for a Nobel Prize for the advancement of the human race.
