    Two years have passed since Jason Solo, seduced by the dark side and re-anointed as the brutal Sith Lord Darth Cadeus, died at the hands of his twin sister, Jaina, Sword of the Jedi. For a grieving Han and Leia, the shadow of their son's tragic downfall still looms large. But Jacen's own bright and loving daughter, Allana, offers a ray of hope for the future as she thrives in her grandparents' care.

    Story
    Would you try another book from James Luceno and/or Marc Thompson?

    James Luceno writes great Star Wars novels and Marc Thompson is by far the best narrator for turning the readings into a movie-like experience. This book managed to be entertaining yet somehow unsatisfying. It's depth of plot is comparable to the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.


    What could James Luceno have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Although enjoyable to listen to, the storyline was shallow compared to the other novels and series.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Much like cotton candy, this story was tasty and fun to ingest but not very filling. Die-hard fans may have a hard time taking it seriously.

    Microsoft: First Generation uncovers the range of surprising success secrets behind the upstart company that defined the Age of Information - and reveals, once and for all, exactly what makes Microsoft tick.

    "Some interesting history but..."
    Overall

    Originally published in 1999 during the dot-com boom, some parts of this book are a bit dated. Written as a series of mini-biographies and interviews of a group of early Microsoft employees, it does contain some interesting historical insights to Microsoft but the stories are mostly bland and repetitive. The "maniacal work ethic" theme became especially grating after chapter 5. The narration was well-paced and clear but somewhat monotone. Overall, this book pales in comparison to similar works such as iWoz and iCon.
