5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST CHARACTERISATION OF THE SMUGGLER YET 23 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read 'Splinter of the Mind's Eye' (written in 1977) and to be honest, was less than impressed. So, for obvious reasons I was a bit dubious about these stories written at (roughly) the same time. But when I saw them collected together..., I figured (since I'm a collector) I'd give them a try. BOY WAS I EVER SHOCKED! I discovered that, although there are few links to the modern saga of Star Wars novels, it has by a long shot the best ever characterisation of that dashing rogue that every boy wanted to be when he was a kid, Han Solo. This trilogy doesn't have the scope or rich continuity of A.C Crispin's Han Solo Trilogy, but you really get a sense of these two smugglers being the best in the game. An action packed read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solo Books Great Reading 31 Dec 1996
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Brian Daley did a fantastic job on these novels. He wrote
perfectly for Han and Chewie even before they were fully
developed (the books were written in 1979 and 1980). An
important part of the novel is the characterization, at
which Daley is very talented. Han and Chewie speak and act
like they would in the movies. The Solo adventures are
action-packed and never slow down. A must read for Han Solo
fans. If you're looking for something in a Star Wars novel
besides seeing MORE remnants of the Empire pop up again and
again, you HAVE to read these books. In them, Han deals with
the Corporate Sector Authority, a group unrelated to the
Empire, but just as dangerous. Daley introduces new and
interesting characters that become as much a part of the book
as Han or Chewbacca. These books will definitely not disappoint
a true Star Wars fan. They're full of all the action and
excitement that epitomize Star Wars. I would give the books
a 10 except that there are a few somewhat goofy moments. In
"Han Solo's Revenge", Chewbacca escapes stampeding animals by
quickly making a glider out of a dead pterosaur. That seems a
bit ridiculous to me, but everything else is just perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Books in One! 30 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The three books in the han solo adventures are not linked to the movies in any shape or form but it does make han solo and chewie's characters that much more exciting, these books show you that they are in the top elite and it expands on him having more brains that luck and cheap tricks.
The first book "Stars End" is about the duo being brought into a rescue mission, this is where there new long time partners Bollux and Blue Max come into the story, and unlike C3PO these ones play a part in what happens. Out of the three the first book is by far the best, the book builds up in excitement and tension until the big finale at the end, which is well worth the wait.
The Second Book Han Solo's Revenge follows on from the first book where they are now back down on there luck and working on some horrid planet, they then are forced to take a job that sounds dodgy and turns out be out right slavery, they then go out to find out who set them up.
The Third Book The Lost Legacy was a really exciting book, at first i was not looking forward to a treasure hunt story but Brian Daley makes it interesting when the falcon is taken, then the team have to go around a very basic planet, tracking down the murder of lanni's sister, the mastermind behind the falcons disappearance and their journey takes them to learning the truth of The Lost Legacy.
Han Solo and Chewie are by far the best characters, the relationship they have is well written. Blue Max and Bollux are an interesting addition to the story and they play important parts in all three books. During the three books other characters come and go, in the final book "The Lost Legacy" you are introduced to Budure, Han solo's old teacher, this gives you a nice look into Solo's early days.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The first novelizations to be written outside the movies when Star Wars just hit theaters in 1977, the Han Solo trilogy is not only believable and original, but also captures the brash and heroic spirit of Han Solo. In comparison to all the trivial novels being released today by Bantam Books , Brian Daley's simplistic and candid storytelling style will always remain classic and true to the Star Wars universe!

3.0 out of 5 stars Han So-So Adventures. 10 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a big Star Wars fan and have been since the tender age of 12, when I first saw the film, I have this trilogy in three separate paperbacks but I haven't read them in about 30 years. So when I saw the set as one purchase for the kindle I purchased and re-read them and was a little bit disappointed by the odd spelling errors, didn't anyone proof read them beforehand. Saying that though, the stories are not too taxing and an easy read.

Han (smuggler/rogue) & Chewbacca (walking carpet) on various exploits on the edge of the Empire, so no Star Destroyers, Tie fighters or Stormtroopers in any of these tales and just a passing mention of the Old Republic and Jedi's. Set in the Corporate Sector with their own security forces called Espos, no real defined villains or space battles to write home about.

Stars End is basically a prison break after Chewie is captured and Han is forced to rescue him with the aid of some forgetable characters, except for a droid called Bollux, how did they get away with naming him that,(did they reject Bal-5AC, Go-Nad or Test-E5). Revenge is Han & Chewie in trouble yet again, mixed up with slavers & Lost legacy is a hunt for a despots treasure on a world in the Tion Hegemony.

Worth reading if for no other reason than to hang out with a couple of iconic characters from a great story, but don't expect a classic. This is good but not brilliant.
