Saw Star Wars for the first time in 1977....I was 7 years old and nothing compared nor does it to this day. The new (episodes 1 2 and 3) were nice, but being older, the magic was not there. Still loved 'em, but not the same. These new books, when Han Luke and Leia were still young....like old times. I love these books. The later years are also good...if your a fan, just get 'em all. It's nice not to have to "grow up" when you read these. Kinda like being 7 all over again....and that's enough for me.
