THE WORST - the first children's books series that had the "Glove of Darth Vader" and other classic ideas. These were the absolute worst (I once tried to rewrite them to make them fit in the continuity but I couldn't get past C-3P0 flying an airspeeder off into space and then trying to save the whales. Mount Yoda and SPIN also sucked the big one. Next to the worst were the Bounty Hunter Books. What would have made a great short story was strung out over three books with very tiresome dialog and poor takes on popular characters. PLANET OF TWILIGHT- Here is where I realized that my enjoyment of Children of the Jedi was actually my joy at having Luke find someone. Once I got past this plot point, I realized Hambly wasn't a very good writer. It is very hard to visualize what is going on in the book and then, when you can, its some cheap attempt at linking modern culture with Star Wars (Like a variation of Cal Ripken's name matching his achievement at shock ball or something - blah). LANDO CALRISSIAN TRILOGY - just not very good. Didn't like them. Not really worth stating why. Just try to read them. Go ahead. You'll see. NEW REBELLION - "It's Dolph!" "Remember Dolph!" Dolph? We can't ever hear about Kyle Katarn but we get Dolph? Also the senate bomb killed all the cool senator characters from the Black Fleet Crisis series. A lot of those had some great potential. YOUNG JEDI KNIGHTS - Just the final "Return to" series, totalling three books. They were forced big time, like KJA was tired of the whole series already and wanted to be sure he wouldn't get the contract when Jedi Apprentice series came out. Who really cares if a spice junky can find herself? Furthermore, if this is Black Suns attempt to regain a foot hold in the galaxy they deserve to loose to a bunch of hormone driven spoon benders. There were other "poor" books but none that actually managed to tick me off like these. I walked away from these really angry that I spent my money and hating myself for being such a fanboy and slave to Lucas that even knowing how bad they were I'd still have plunked down money to add them to my collection.
