Oct 15, Brad rated it really liked it Shelves: It is all so,o and stock characters and pretty lights and bad plots and predictability and self-referential bullshit and unspeakable dialogue and sci-fantastic worlds.

And that’s exactly why we love them so much — or at hitt why I do — because they are drivel. Crispinwho is obviously silo Reading or in the case of Star Wars The Han Solo Trilogy rereading Star Wars books, with all tue cheesie craptasticness is a great reminder of just how bad George Lucas’ universe is.

Crispinwho is obviously a fan of Han Solo, has her hero leading smugglers in an attack on an Imperial Fleet come to destroy Nar Shaddaa, it doesn’t matter that it further damages his original trilogy character development the worst damage was done by Lucas, after all, so the Creator himself set the precedent.

And when Han comes up with the master plan that will help defeat the fleet an ex-lover whose illusions would put David Copperfield to shame gmbit, and when Han is used by Jabba and Jiliac the Hutts to bribe the Admiral of the fleet, and haj Han barely escapes from Boba Fett long before his Empire encounter with the bounty hunter and makes him a mortal enemy by stealing his Huft wrist dartsand when Han falls in love with the Millenium Falcon in about as banal a way as I can imagine, and when Han meets and befriends Lando Calrissian on the spot, who turns out to be a man who loves responsibility long before he becomes responsible for Cloud City, and when Han peaks out of a closet at a Darth Vader murder, it doesn’t matter because its just as contradictory and silly ahn all Star Wars tales.


And it’s just as fun. So I admit it I really, really liked The Hutt Gambit because I am a hutr git with no taste. But I’m okay with that. View all 17 comments. Feb 12, Daniel Kukwa rated it liked it Shelves: I still have issues with this Han Solo series: Solo’s first meeting with Lando is also rather perfunctory, and far less momentous than it could have been.

But those complaints aside, this is tue major leap in quality from the previous book. It’s far more exciting and engaging a tale than “The Paradise Snare”, and it manages to make Hutt I still have issues with this Han Solo series: It’s far more exciting and engaging a tale than “The Paradise Snare”, and it manages to make Hutt society and politics — never an interest of mine — into something fascinating and compelling.

Hopefully, this upward trend in quality continues in the final book of the Han Solo trilogy. Dec 28, Ivy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Also liked seeing Chewie and Lando. Han got his own ship. Hope to read more Han Solo books!! Can’t wait to read Rebel Dawn!!!! Mar 24, Mary JL hab it liked it Recommends it for: Te Sf adventure fan; Star Wars fans especially.

It’s not a spoiler as I think so many people have seen Star Wars. Han Solo did not succeed in the Imperial Space Academy. He actually made lieutenant; but then he inteferred when a vicious admiral was disciplining a Wookie slave with a force whip. Han expected punishment; he did NOT expect to be thrown out entirely.

So what other job is there for a crack pilot than smuggling? At first, Han is going to seek his future alone. But when Chewbacca saves him from severe injury in a bar fight, he decides It’s not a spoiler as I think so many yan have seen Star Wars.

But when Chewbacca saves gwmbit from severe injury in a bar fight, he decides that the ‘fur-ball’ might be handy and thier long freindship begains. Soon employed on the Smuggler’s Moon, Han and Chewie became caught up in battle. The Empire intends to wipe out the Smugglers Moon and leave nothing but ashes.

Han must battle not only to save his livelihood, but also the many non-combatants who are trapped on the Smuggler’s Moonto whom the Empire will show no mercy. The battle for the Smuggler’s Moon takes up a large section of the book and it is fast paced and exciting.

Also between battles we meet the bounty hunter, Bobba Fett; Lando Calrissian and an interesting cast of characters. Agreat, fast paced asventure makes up the middle book of a good trilogy. Recommended for SF fans; Star Wars fans in particular. Mar 07, Ron rated it liked it Shelves: Fills gaps in Hans’ past, but the haan with Lando is too contrived. Nice to see that Han really is a scoundrel Jul 10, Crystal Starr Light rated it it was amazing Shelves: Now, he is unemployed and burdened with a Wookiee, insistent on staying at his side due to a “Life Debt”.


But Han is clever.

He pulls himself up and begins to hone his piloting craft by working gambjt the Hutts, keeping just ahead of the bounty hunters, and meeting people who will influence his life in the future. Oh, and finding the ship that he has his heart set on: Based on the actual novel read years ago and the audiobook. Having Han team up with Chewie really makes this novel better than its predecessor which had him team up with Muurgh, a Togorian, yan Bria, his Corellian love interest.

We get to go with them through their journey, to watch as Han improves his skill, learns his trade, makes an impression on those around him, and meet up with people we know from other novels. I adored ghe Crispin really put effort eolo the continuity of this book. This is true dedication, to work around another author’s creation, to spend time paying homage and referencing it.

And I applaud Crispin hah it. The novel is definitely more episodic, with not so much of a single emphasis, other than the Ylesia plot you might remember from The Paradise Snare. This works to the story’s advantage. Han’s life wouldn’t be dictated like a “normal” story, and I appreciate the “lack of a plot”. As for the Yan plot and the Hutts, I really enjoyed it.

It is impressive for her to take the task of making the Hutts interesting, and Crispin succeeded. I felt they were very much like the Corleone’s from the Godfather while without being a complete ripoff.

One of my absolute favorite moments in the book was where Boba Fett nearly captures Han Solo and Lando Calrissian comes to the rescue.

I love the introduction to Fett, I love how Calrissian was able to get the jump on him, and I love how it set up Fett’s yutt against Han Solo. It really showed Fett being a human and not just hab flat robot. The segment near the beginning where Han meets a fortune teller that basically relates how he will become in so,o movies was unnecessary and only made for a “wink-wink” to what happens to him.

I didn’t care how “Hoth” was mentioned. I like continuity, but do so many people have to be aware of these “out of the way” worlds? With the way things go, Tatooine is more central to the galaxy than Coruscant makes Luke’s statement in A New Hope kinda absurd nowEndor is a by-word, and Bespin hn as popular as our Disney World. Make up some new planets! I wasn’t too fond of the time hopping. This may be in part because of the editing of the audiobook they always cut out stuff from thembut I still felt a little jerked around.

My last big complaint: Han should not have survived that incident. This novel is really clever.
