5.0 out of 5 stars Solo's Eleven 12 Jan. 2014
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In 1991, Timothy Zahn re-launched the Star Wars Expanded Universe with 'Heir to the Empire' and ever since a new Star Wars novel from Zahn has been something to look forward to.

As many other reviews have pointed out, Scoundrels is basically Ocean's Eleven in space. As always with Zahn, it is a plot with twists, turns and multiple layers...the final twist is particularly well done and surprising. The usual key Zahn characters are left out of this one with the focus very much on the saga favourites of Han, Chewbacca & Lando, but there are one or two guest appearances and a couple of new characters also.

The book is well written, if not a bit obvious in places, and the beauty of a Zahn book is that he gets Star Wars and it's characters better than possibly any other EU author. Particularly well written is Han Solo and his relationship with Chewbacca...it takes you back to the partnership we see in the films; Han has not been so well understood and written since Brian Daley's excellent novels back in 1979.

I'm not sure that this story fits particularly well into the Star Wars "canon" but it's a very enjoyable read and a blessed relief from the long multi-book arcs that have been seen in the EU of late.

This story was well written and featured a lot of intrigue. It featured action set in one place which for the length of the novel became a little tedious. This is not Zahn's best work but should be well received for its originality. There was a nice little twist at the end. Overall a fine read for the Star Wars enthusiast.

Unconventional for a Star Wars book, more like oceans 11
Loved the twist on the the last page
As usual Han ends up in more trouble than in the beginning of the book

2.0 out of 5 stars Struggled a bit with this one. 26 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I remember reading the original Thrawn trilogy many years ago and have gone back to them several times; sadly it is very rare these days to find a Star Wars novel that matches the scope and brilliance of those books. This book is ok, and you'll probably enjoy it, but I did find myself struggling to commit to the book and get it finished.

Nice story, although very difficult to identify some of the personalities as the same characters we know from the films and other books.
