Okay, so Greedo and Zam Holly got me a book for my birthday. It's Vector Prime by R.A. Salvatore, the first book in the "New Jedi Order" series. The book was great up until the point on Sernpidal where Chewbacca dies... After I picked the book up out of the garbage and continued to read it, I was a little miffed... Okay so Obi Wan & Yoda die in the trilogy, but what gives this guy the right to kill Chewie in some damn book? That particular point in the book REALLY ruined it for me. Chewie didn't have a whole lot of parts in the book leading up to that point, and then all of the sudden BAM...our hairy friend is dead. Okay so maybe he DID die saving Han's son, but c'mon. Am I COMPLETELY off my rocker here or did this severly upset anyone else? I kept holding out hope that Han would make it back to Sernpidal by the end of the book and that somehow, someway, Chewie had managed to stay alive, but he didn't. I am seriously considering not even finishing the series at this point. Someone give me a reason to continue reading.
