Customer Reviews of Star Wars Tales, Vol. 2
A very enjoyable collection of stories for fans of the originals.
I found the stories here very enjoyable with spoof and reference to the original star wars universe that any fan would catch on to very quickly.
Star Wars. Ever since I've had coherent thought, I've known Lucas' universe. These tales are a series of entertaining yarns that is worth buying just for the Pulp Fiction spoof. I'd advise casual fans to read something like "Heir to the Empire" by Timothy Zahn, but you hardcore Star Wars fans will get all the in-jokes and cross references in these stories. Check these out!
A lot of small stories that give a little (not much) background to the movies. Entertaining.
Good, though not the best
While rather pricey, this collection of short stories is quite charming, and well worth the money, if you're a true die-hard fan, and/or are into comics in particular. I never have been, (into comics, that is) but this caught my eye one day at the last minute in the bookstore, so I picked it up just for the heck of it. And I have to say, that I enjoyed it quite a bit as a whole. Some of the spoofs were really silly, (as in, not worthy of Star Wars) but most everything else was great, the story detailing Padme's first boyfriend was sweet, and the one about Darth Vader and Threepio almost had me in tears. So, I'd recommend this one to anyone with a reasonable amount of EU experience, and a good sense of humor. Good for all ages.
