    I'm probably going to be killed for this, but are there any EU or NJO fans around here? I like the movies, but started with the books before I saw the movies, so I tend to like the books better ;)

    Anyone around?

    Thank the gods! There's actually someone.

    I already imagined myself killed by movie fans ;)

    Why the EU? (can't say I'm not curious, can you 8-})

    Tough quetion why the EU... It is fun and gives a broader view. :D

    Strange, I know some people here that like the EU very much, too... ;)

    Well I read some of the EU, especially the books that are close to the films. I haven't read the NJO though, and I don't feel tempted from what I've heard about it. I definetly think that the EU gives a much broader view, it's nice to know what happens off screen, and often the characters get more developed, especially the characters that doesn't have so much screen time, Wedge, and all prequel jedi for example.

    I like the EU, although not all of it... there are some really bad books and comics out there. But on the whole I like it, and I have read most books. :)

    The NJO is a bit uneven, some wonderful books (Enemy Lines) and some appalingly bad (Dark Journey).

    I liked the NJO, but I don't like where they've gone and what is done.

    I hate what they've done to some characters... especially Luke. And I can't stand Jaina or Jacen... argh! But some parts of the books are rather interesting...

    But on the whole, there's much better EU than the NJO. I prefer the PT books...
    *looking forward to Escape from Dagu* :)

    I'm also curious to how it will end... there are so many things that must happen, I wonder how they will fit it all into two books... ah well. :)

    Love the EU books. They just released them in Romania and bought everything they had for now. Some of them are GREAT, some are just good.

    sure...

    I'm quite a freak about it...
    I don't have enough room for all the books, comics.....

    I'm a big fan of the EU, especially the X-wing series...

    NJO is fine, but to me, it misses the thing that made SW into what it is...

    THE EMPIRE!!!!

    I'm Dutch too. I love the EU (that is, most of it, and most of the EU isn't available here..) The Thrawn Trilogy and the Hand of Thrawn Duology are my favorites. So far, I've only read one NJO book, Vector Prime. I really enjoyed it, so I think I'm going to order the other NJO books :)
