This will probably come off as a stupid post but has anyone else been in the situation where you want to learn as much as you can of the EU but struggle to get through some of the EU books? I'm about 80 pages into The Last Command and just cannot get into it. I read the first two Thrawn novels and though they were ok. I'm usually a crime thriller fan and enjoy John Sandford / Michael Connelly books but have always wanted to know more about Star Wars. I read the first Bane novel and enjoyed it. I started reading Rule of Two directly after but got sidetracked by other life priorities and lost interest. I guess I'm not as interested in the EU as I thought. Maybe Star Wars novels aren't my thing? I'm a huge fan of the movies but maybe that's the extent of my interests. I initially started reading the EU novels because I was longing for more Star Wars material and was interested in learning what happens to everyone in the future. After ROTS, we never knew if the Star Wars saga would continue in film form (we now know the future plans) so turning to the EU for more Star Wars entertainment was one of the only options.
