I have read Cloak of Deception and now I'm reading Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter
Shatterpoint by Matthew Stover. Great book
I just finished " Randezvous with Rama " from Arthur Clarce , and now I started "E.T."
Currently waiting for The Unifying Force.
And czech-translated version of Vision of future. (I must say I'm afraid of it. Czech translations are horrible in general - for example X-wing translated as "cross-winged starfighter")
Wow, that is bad translation. In Croatia, translations are terrible. When i read The Thrawn Trilogy on Croatian, and then again on english,... the first thing i thought "Somebody has to die for this... this blasphemy..."
Anyway, i'm on a NJO reading spree the last month and i just finished NJO Agents of Chaos: Jedi Eclipse - it'sone of the best SW books i've read so far. And so i move on to the next in line - Star by Star.
I'm finishing of the Hichhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series with the book Mostly Harmless, the whole series is unbelievebly hilarious so I'm kind of sad to be on the last book.
Errr... i made a bit of a mistake in my last post... next book on the menu is Balance Point.
I'm reading hard Merchanidse right now . I have to say, that this trilogy of Bounty hunters is goood
I'm on Edge fo Victory 1: Conquest(still on that NJO reading spree).
I've only read the first book of the Bounty Hunter Wars Trilogy, and it was good.
I've finished "Star by star" and "Mandalorian Armor" and now I am reading "Jedi search"
I'm reading most of my books on the computer, for many reasons, money being one of them. We have only one(or is it two?) publishers in Croatia, and they print only 2-3 books a year, witch is really sad plus they're a bit expensive for my taste, AND they publish them in some wierd order i still can't understand. The last book that got out was (i think...)was the New Rebellion (witch isn't a very good SW book by my standards). And the worst part of it all is the damn translation. I found a mistake on the first page, not chapter, page. That tells you everything...
Anyway, (had to get that out of me... ) whats your favorite book/trilogy/series?
0. The Thrawn Trilogy - The best of the best.
1. X-wing series(Wraith squadron rules!)
2. The Hand of Thrawn
3. The Han Solo Adventures
4. Shadows of the Empire
5. The New Jedi Order - Agents of Chaos 1 & 2
6. The League of Spies
7. Shatterpoint (now that's tough reading)
The worst...(to me anyway, just don't have that SW feeling...)
The New Rebellion,
Han Solo Adventures,
Episode 1 Adventures,
The Starfighter trap.
For me, the best are Stover's Books, Traitor, and Shatterpoint, then are Zahn's and Anderson, on the Same place, and Lando's Adventures. the worest... Splinter on the Mind's Eye it was so Booooring... and the Crystal Star... bleh... Now, I'm starting to read Tales from the Empire
IÂ´m very happy that the german translation areÂ´nt so bad but I think it would be funny to read the books from croatia...
the books I read were:
The Thrawn Trilogie
Yuuzhan Vong 1-8
the Original Trilogie
the Covenant of Bakura
Abduction to Dathomir
the Jedi-Academy Trilogie
Palpatines Eye;Dark Saber;Planet of twilight
the black fleet
rebellion of the lost
the hand of thrawn
if the names areÂ´nt correct im soory Â´cause I translated the German Names in English and I donÂ´t know if I done it well..I hope youÂ´ll understand the titles..
Do you still have those books? there should be in them their oryginal title
In polish there is But, I have to say, if I had translated the titles from polish to English, there would be quite a mess
Right now I'm reading Wedge's Gamble I've read Rogue Squadron, but it wasn't as good as i heard of.
yes youÂ´re right but it was too much to do...I didnÂ´t wannt to look in every book, so I tried to translate from my book-list..
What i did forgot to mention are the DVD subtitles... now THAT is funny... Acutaly sad They used the old subtitles from the early '90s for the new DVDs.
Anyway, i'm gonna start reading Star By Star one of these days... i got my hand on(after a year of waiting ) A Song of Fire an Ice: A Clash of Kings. Anyone read that? I love the first part...
I've read 5 X-Wing's... now i'm reading Iron Fist
I'm reading Reunion for all over two weeks. But luckuli i'm heading to the end of this book
Mwhahaha! Vision of the future in Czech. Funny, but not that bad....
Still, original is the best . . .
I'm reading The Courtship of princess Leia . It was hard to get that book
Just got my hands on Republic Commando - Hard Contact in .doc format.
I'm not sure, if I want to get that book. After Ruins of Dantooine...
Why? I Haven't read Ruins of Dantooine...
I haven't too, but my friends had. They said, that it's more like botanic book, than Star Wars novel
THX for the tip. Gonna move it to the bottom of the "sw books to read" list when i get it.
But... um... RC is (at least i think it is) an action book, so i think it should be better then Ruins of Dantooine.
