    1. AC Crispin does herself no favours in my estimation in Han Solo Rebel Dawn Her books were just fine up until Interlude One, where she suddenly offers up a shitty encapsulation of Brian Daley s Han Solo at Star s End.I am not sure why she couldn t simply have finished her story before the Star s End adventure happened but I haven t finished her book either I paused my reading so that I could read Daley s book, so I will return to her book tonight , but since I had the Daley books handy, she nudge [...]

    2. Ritrovare il leggendario Han Solo e il suo caro copilota Chewbecca sfrecciare nello spazio a bordo del Millennium Falcon stato un bel colpo al cuore, da appassionato fan di Star Wars Questa avventura, a livello cronologico rispetto ai film, si situa prima del Quarto, Una nuova speranza, dove incontriamo un giovane Han Solo alle prese con l ennesimo incarico da contrabbandiere che non andr molto bene, visto che cercher di non farsi uccidere dal mafioso che lo ha incaricato e col quale si vendica [...]

    3. I ll address the series first, then this book.This series is probably the most enjoyable of the pre EU era anything released before the Thrawn series If you read the Han Solo Trilogy by A.C Crispin, you ll find a kinder, gentler Han Solo, plus realistic technology that matches the EU feel If you jump in to this series which Crispin places chronologically a few chapters into Rebel Dawn , it might be a little bit of a shock The way the Falcon is run in this series makes it seem realistic, how re [...]

    4. When a book is under 200 pages, there really isn t a whole lot to say without giving away most of the plot fairly quickly Suffice it to say that Han Solo at Stars End, while not about to win any prizes or anything, was a really fun book to read Brian Daley throws his reader directly into the action and except for a brief pause now and then it s a frenetic pace from one harrowing situation to the next with our hero Han Solo and his trusty companion Chewbacca the Wookie This is a great side story [...]

    5. This is a book I read a number of times when I was growing up As one of the first additional Star Wars novels ever published, it fed my adolescent need for stories featuring my favorite characters from the original trilogy, Han Solo and Chewbacca So how does this book hold up as I re read it in middle age Not bad, actually Brian Daley had to write his Han Solo stories outside of the traditional Star Wars universe, so he moves the characters to a wing of the galaxy where another brutal military [...]

    6. Still a fun read after all of these years but different than the Post Expanded Universe books because it s mostly disconnected from the rest of the Star Wars Universe Written at a time when Lucas was experimenting with his brand but didn t want anything written that would force his hand on the movies, etc it takes Solo and Chewbacca off to a distant place far removed from The Empire, Jabba the Hutt and While it does examine their pre Luke Skywalker life, it makes no references to anything famil [...]

    7. by Brian Daley, published in 1979.Yes, I m back on the Star Wars train and this ride by Brian Daley is certainly fast, wild and true to the flavour of the Star Wars Universe.This is the first book by Brian Daley in the Han Solo Adventures, written not long after the first movie hit the big screens way back in 1977.It features Han Solo, of course, as well as Chewbacca and the Millennium Falcon Fun stuff from start to finish and what a finish, but I won t spoil it for you.This series of books by D [...]

    8. I ll admit this book and its two successors have sat on my shelf surrounded by skepticism for a long time They were yard sale finds I think that were really cheap, vintage curiosities at first After having read some of the better Expanded Universe novels, it seemed dubious to me that these very old school novels would hold up or be an enjoyable, believable readAs if there was a worse cliche to use on this site don t judge a book by its cover Additionally, don t take a book like this too seriousl [...]

    9. Me star wars geekhan solo the best character in star wars, and the first male role model i had that wasnt immediate family.i remember being little and my babysitter had these books and i so wanted to read them and when i finally did i was very glad i have original hard covers of these books and i love to read them from time to timeey are not really star wars, it seems to me that the author had some sci fi stories that werent really going to sell, and he added han solo and chewbacca to the mix t [...]

    10. This story , I ve read was written right after Star Wars came out and before Empire Strikes back So it doesn t have knowledge of everything that happens, although I would think anyone who watched Star Wars knew Han and Leia would end up together, or maybe that s just me.Anyway, this is the story of one of Han and Chewbacca s adventures They started off trying to make money but ended up saving lives The parts where Han found out that they took Chewie and that he had to leave Chewie Rip my heart o [...]

    11. I just love the cover on this one I have the 1981 version and it is so vintage anime esque Hey, I happen to LIKE to shoot first Han Solo.This book is fun, rompy, 80 s, and has some great action set pieces I d love to see this made as an animated movie The writing is a little bit amateur, but the characterizations are correct and the setting is done well This book goes in to establish Han s background as an imperial fighter pilot and how he ruined his career by standing up for a slave I recommend [...]

    12. I m surprised how long it took me to get through this I found the first half choppy, hard to follow, hard to settle into It just wasn t doing much for me By the second half, things picked up as the story kicked into gear, the supporting cast developed into some neat characters, and it became a really fun heist adventure with some big action and sharp laughs Hopefully I ll have a better time with the next two.

    13. This was another example of Star Wars fiction published before The Empire Strikes Back took the Star Wars series to the next level There s nothing earth shattering here, but it s just a fun romp in the Star Wars universe from a time when Star Wars novels didn t have to add to or comply with a burgeoning and bloated Expanded Universe canon Great fun.

    14. I m going to give this book a 3 because it is an enjoyable, if forgetable, read The following two books in the series are also readable but got repetitious pretty fast.

    15. When I started reading the Star Wars books at least, once I committed to reading all of them , I decided to read them in chronological order Past experience with other series suggested this wasn t the best idea, but it seemed like a good way to introduce myself to the Expanded Universe Now that I m starting to get into some of the older books, though, I see that I ve made a mistake.In Han Solo at Stars End, one of the plot points revolve around Doc, a mechanic for criminals and other scoundrels, [...]

    16. This book honestly holds a soft spot for me This is Star Wars at its very best It takes place in the expanded Star Wars universe but it follows everyone s favorite Smuggler Han Solo This is book 1 in a 3 part series I highly recommend the other two books as well They can be purchased as a collection called The Han Solo Adventures by Brian Daley This version of Han Solo is crass, crude, and unforgiving This is what I really imagine Han Solo to be like It perfectly captures the wit and the tactful [...]

    17. Going solely off the cheesy cover art, you d be forgiven for thinking this was just another lame tie in novel from the 1970 s, probably written to sucker pre adolescents out of their allowance money The reality, though, is that HAN SOLO AT STAR S END is actually a legit sci fi novel with a fun plot, great concepts, clever writing, and terrific world building Even the character development is decent, and Brian Daley is especially good at making all Han Solo s dialog seem completely Harrison Ford [...]

    18. I m reading some old Han Solo stories as I wait for the Solo Star Wars story movie this May I had a hard time deciding what I thought of this book The first half very much seems to portray the Han audiences meet in A New Hope Han has a good heart, but he keeps it hidden away and doesn t risk getting involved That all changes after a series of events leaves the Millennium Falcon in need of repairs, and the payment is a mission he would rather not take Before long, Han is swept in a mission with h [...]

    19. I first read this book when I was 9 or 10 and it was the first Star Wars book I read that wasn t a movie adaptation I loved it at the time and if it hasn t quite held up in the intervening decades, well, what has It s still a fun adventure tale starring some of my favorite Star Wars characters In some ways it feels like older science fiction 40 s and 50 s but Star Wars itself hearkens back to those space opera traditions.

    20. In comparison to another Solo Trilogy that I read which was decent this opening novel of another Solo Trilogy gave me something I longed for That is Solo the scoundrel, the scruffy looking nerf herder Perhaps Solo s most rogue portrayal to date this is sure to please Han fans Hopefully the new planned cinematic spinoff will draw inspiration.

    21. Han made a sour face I happen to like to shoot first As opposed to shooting second Taking my niece and nephew to Walt Disney s Star Wars weekend gave me the itch for a bit of George Lucas s universe and, eschewing the modern material much of which I have already read , I decided to dip back to 1979 s Han Solo at Stars End by Brian Daley Somehow I just never had the chance to read Daley s trilogy before which admittedly occupies a rather unique space in the Star Wars fictional canon as one of j [...]

    22. I ve been a Star TREK fan all my life however, in the interest of expanding my galactic horizons, I temporarily traded in my phaser for a blaster And, having enjoyed the trip, I plan on visiting this part of the galaxy again soon.

    23. The Brian Daley books have a lot going for them in some respects It s interesting to compare them to Splinter of the Mind s Eye, which came out a year before this one Both were written before ESB, when the GFFA was still young and unformed the book was written before the Imperial March, isn t that weird They re basically ground zero for the EU They re both pulp adventure stories, but beyond that they re totally different Splinter is a jungle serial structured out of monster encounters and a macg [...]

    24. I wanted to read these before Disney erased the Canon and I m glad I did Well written Fun early star wars book.

    25. Han Solo at Stars End was originally published in 1979 and was the second Star Wars spin off novel, after Alan Dean Foster s Splinter of the Mind s Eye released the year before Whereas Foster s novel focused on Luke, Leia, Threepio and Artoo and was a direct continuation of events from Lucas film, Stars End is a completely separate story with no direct links to that first film, save for the characters of Han and Chewie and, of course, the Millennium Falcon There are no Jedi, or the Empire, and n [...]

    26. This was written in 1979, so Han is a bit OOC from what we ve seen since.However, I wonder why this wasn t considered the canonical Han He has a good heart though he wants to act as if he acts independently though with Chewbacca His discharge from the Imperial military is for a different reason, but it makes sense And he becomes almost a space cowboy, which so many believed him to be This works great as a head canon for Han, so it s unfortunate that this isn t what others went from.What is aweso [...]

    27. This book was flat out awful I m a bit neurotic in that once I start a book I won t pick up another until I finish the one I started, no matter how bad it gets, and I don t even have the words to tell you how bad this one was Granted, I don t have the time to read as much as I would like, but if this was able to hold my interest at all it wouldn t have taken than a few days to get through As it turns out it took over 3 months That s less than 20 pages a week I was able to force my way through, [...]

    28. This is one of the older Star Wars novel, as I recall, but one I had never bothered to read However, since I picked it up for a quarter at a recent library sale, I figured I would get my money s worth I did This is a decent entry into the Star Wars universe There being no mention of Luke or Leia, or the usual droids, it appears to be a prequel to the original Star Wars film, confusingly titled Episode IV a New Hope Instead, Han and Chewie are the main characters, puttering around in a sector of [...]
