But if you don't want to read all 70 or so books, the Thrawn Trilogy is good., the Hand of Thrawn is excellent, the NJO kicks ass. There are a lot of books I didn't mention because I'm not sure if you wanted to read it all, or just read a few.

i think reading them all will be a bit too much, but then again if you want to get the whole story i might have to do that, i have heard good good things about the Timothy Zahn novels. Whuch novels have Katarn in them and lots of Jedi action as i think i would like to read those sorts first.

I like the NJO books. Don't really like those prequel books although I do have Shadow Hunter.

the general consensus among readers izzat the njo and x-wing series are good, but that the thrawn trilogy is the best of them all. check out the hand of thrawn duology, too.

STARFIGHTERS OF ADUMAR= best book in the entire sw universe.

The Hand of Thrawn Duology is my second favorite series. The NJO is 1st.

and Traitor = best SW book... so far, there's still the rest of Force Heretics, and the Unifying Force
