    Being her brother's keeper didn't work because he didn't want to be kept.

    Well, LarryG wins with a resounding two votes because apparently no one's read this yet. [face_sigh]

    C'baoth, whose clone wasn't as buggy as we thought, leads a ship that is meant to travel to the next galaxy but is destroyed as soon as it meets someone outside the Republic, and every single rule of battle has a convenient Thrawn-shaped loophole.

    A young George Lucas meets a brilliant foreign strategist, and after exchanging linguistics and general world views, tHeir actions lead directly to the deaths of thousands, while they both go on to live extremely prosperous lives.

    Further proof, as if we needed it, that Anakin and Obi-Wan have to be involved with everything.

    A jackass Jedi Master get the bright idea to rope a bunch of spaceships together and head off into the Unknown Regions so he can rule his own roped-together spaceship society, making Obi-Wan sort of suspicious before he and Anakin just leave so that the movies will still work, and then Thrawn blows them up just like we knew he did for the last fifteen years, except now Kinman Doriana mentioned the Vong and let's all throw the standard new-Tim-Zahn-book fit about whitewashing.

    A book written for the sole purpose of resolving unanswered questions from the EU's big mystery novel - naturally, everyone and their grandma seems to read this story first, to ensure they're nice and spoiled going into the other one.

    For purposes of analogy, a shiny new colony ship (known to the Senate as Outbound Flight, to C'baoth as Mine, All Mine and to Palpatine as Golgafrinchan Arc B) sails triumphantly out of harbour headed for territories new, only to run aground on a sandbank immediately afterward and be overrun by the forces of a hyper-intelligent dolphin.

    Haven't read it in years, I remember C'Baoth Force choking Thrawn from across space, that was neat!

    C'baoth says he's a Jedi Master and doesn't give a flying **** whether anyone else agrees...but it's Thrawn, with his long-winded speeches about pre-emptive war, who must be worshipped.

    A "sort of prequel" written by a guy who used to write good SW but now has to fill in his own gaps with semi-crappy stuff like this.

    The one Star Wars novel in which the most important person in Palpatine's life is seen before his untimely death required Palpatine to fill the void with Mara Jade, Vader, and Thrawn.

    Considering Thrawn is tossed away by Chiss Asendency, C'baoth by the Jedi and Republic, Thrawn again later by the Empire - someone should really put up a sign that says Unknown Space: No Littering.

    In which Thrawn's arrogance causes him to utterly fail at everything he was trying to achieve, but accomplishes someone else's goal in the process and so impresses them - not that it has anything to do with how he ended up joining their side decades later.

    Whether or not I buy this book depends entirely on if Darth Vader's in it.

    A surprisingly accurate representation of military life---at least with the ratio of boring bits to interesting ones.

    If you've read the series and are interested in how everything turns out, you'll be disappointed to know that apparently some damn cartoon ran with a different Mandalorian history which ****canned everything KT wrote.
