    Synopsis

    Although they had won a significant battle, the war between the Rebels and the Empire had really just begun. Soon, Luke, Han, the princess and their faithful companions were forced to flee, scattering in all directions--the Dark Lord's minions in fevered pursuit....

    It's an average adaptation. Not much to say, really. There's nothing you didn't see in the movie, and no expansion on character. The weakest of the 3 CT novelizations.

    Could've have better if the scenes were expanded more, but it definitely benefits from great source material.

    The greatest aspect of this novelization was the level of "adult appeal" which was not possible in the movie. Thus like IV's novelization it was alot more graphic.

    The added moments (mostly with the probe droid) were great too. But there wasn't awhole lot that stood out in my mind, and if I were going off the images created from the text instead of the picture, I'd have had a hard time.

    Simply an average book in my opinion (for what it's worth :p, which is diddily.)

    Average. The worst of the novelizations, though the author has the coolest name. ;)

    Compared to the movie the book of E5 kicked butt. Had they included most or all of the training scenes, it would have made it a better movie. I also liked how Yoda and Luke got to be closer than just Master and Apprentice

    I too believe that getting the relationship more personal between Yoda and Luke was done better in the Novel. That was about it though.
