    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Would you be willing to try another book from Timothy Zahn? Why or why not?

    I would definitely try another from Timothy Zahn, his detailed use of descriptive language really paints a vivid mental picture.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I actually laughed out loud at a couple of moments in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    While I enjoyed the book overall, and the performance was top-notch which, the ending felt rushed, and in my opinion didn't have as satisfying a payoff as I was hoping for after such a long albeit very good build up.I love a good heist novel, but like a good heist movie, the last quarter should be the execution. I get that there can only be so much time spent in the actual execution of the heist, but well... you can make up your own mind, I don't want to give anything away. Plus, it's a personal preference thing.

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Endurance to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not to give too much away but... The last chapters being told each from the separate perspective of the two parties was very effective at keeping you invested in the moment. It would have been easy to keep the chronological order, but that would have pulled you out of each of the events.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One man pushing the limits of human endurance trying to save his crew from a certain death at the bottom of the world.
