Nothing has compared to the Thrawn trilogy, but it was so good, I think comparing other books to that series isn't the exact same, but is like having expected the prequels movies to be as good as the OT stuff.

It's too hard to argue this on the comp, (this is going to be a lot of fragmented sentences) but I think OT characters do have to die sometimes. It isn't like the writers of the NJO stuff just chose to kill Chewie on their own. To put it mildly I don't enjoy Star Trek so saying NJO stole species doesn't mean much to me because I don't know what you're talking about.

Anyway I'm glad the NJO existed and was 19 books long.

I think that every once in a while a main character has to die or you lose there ever being any suspense to the plot with those characters.

I loved them and the series. I hope they return some day. GO VONG!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited for this. I love the Vong. It is nice to finally be getting a Hasbro version.

It's more like $50 for us who don't open stuff which means I'll have to be good with my Ep 1 version.

If they are going to keep giving us new pilot characters we've never had before It's hard to complain about it being a reused body in my opinion.

Yeah. If Target is done with Tites we are all screwed I think.

Nothing better than a bunch of jerks who have to try and scam free stuff and ruin it for everyone else.

Just Finished Omen. Now I'm waiting for them to send me my $18 check since the book should have only been a $8 paperback.

This was the worst/uncalled for hardcover SW book I've ever read.

Less than 30 pages left in the book and I can only assume these last handful of pages are going to be the most enthralling and action packed SW book pages ever for me to have paid the B&N hardcover price.

This does belong in the book thread, but I did read it and I don't think anyone thinks Meyer is a great author, but that doesn't mean the books weren't interesting and I guarantee it won't be a bomb at the box office.

I think efranks is right about New Moon being a sleeper for the year.  My wife is way into the books/first movie, and that fanbase in general is pretty enthusiastic.  I don't think its going to crack the top three, but top 5 is a distinct possibility.

Well, if they read the whole series, then I can't believe people would put too much into anything Twilight-related. The first movie/book were great, but overall that was the worst series ever.

I thought they were all interesting. And the millions of others who read all the books probably agree on some level too.

I've read about half the 236 page "Omen" book and really wondering where the justification of this being a $25 hardcover is coming from.
