    Just started this one. So far so good. Not great, but I love reading about Boba Fett, a character that has intrigued me, perhaps not to the extent he intrigues some, but certainly I've always wanted to learn more. Amazingly this book escaped me when originally published in the late 1990s. I think I was overseas in the Navy at the time so that might explain it.

    Anyway, I'd love to hear what others think of this one.

    I really love this trilogy. It's so out of date that it's canon was in question even as the prequels came out, but it did a perfect job at both rehabilitating Boba's death and creating an image of the underbelly of the universe that isn't matched anywhere else in Star Wars. I read the first few chapters recently to recommend it, might have to sit down and read it again.

    I've had this book series on my shelf for years, I got it through the Sci-fi book club way back when it was first released. I picked it up again since the Mandalorian series really intrigued me. I've read a couple of chapters, I intend to finish the entire The Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy at some point. Some may not like the writing style because the book starts off rather slow but once you dig in for a few chapters it flys. It goes into great detail on how Boba Fett escaped the Sarlaac pit. An issue many want answered since ROTJ, but remember this is Legend's content; nevertheless, its a fun read even though the story may change as we move forward with new canon content. Also, the creators can always cherry-pick from Legends content, so Legend books are still well worth the read if you are an avid reader.

    I read that book years ago, can't even remember if I liked it or not, heck I'm not even sure i finished it.

    Another EU book I need to revisit!

    Im re-reading the first book and last time i read the first book was back in 1998.

    Storyline continuity wise, im surprised that Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron were really busy with the Imperial warlords and TIE Fighters while Luke, Han and Leia were off doing their wacky adventures while Boba was being nursed back to health by Dengar and his gal pal hiding out here and there from whoever.
