Please note: This topic is NOTHING to do with the Star Wars films, video games or that crappy Ewok cartoon series.

As the title suggests, does anyone read the Star Wars books, not related to the films? I find that the books surpass some of the films in certain ways, and add a lot to the series. The plots and characters are expanded on, and new characters are added to the storyline. The recent series about the Yuuzhan Vong war even kills off a few of the main characters from the films (no spoiling who it is though!).

My personal favourite books from the series were the Admiral Daala trilogy, because it introduced many of the greatest Star Wars characters (namely Admiral Daala and Kyp Durron). The Admiral Thrawn trilogy also deserves a mention, both the books and the graphic novel series was superb.

Discuss? And I checked back a few pages, so unless there's a REALLY old topic about this, then I think I'm fine.

Oh, and if anyone cares, Quinlan Vos is a rogue Jedi from the Clone Wars.

I haven't read the Extended Universe books, but I have read the Jedi Apprentice series. It focuses on Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon and their adventures before the first episode.
