The Adventures of Lando Calrissian #1

You must be aware by now I’m a Star Wars fan.  So it should come as no shock, I just finished the first book of The Adventures of Lando Calrissian, The Mindharp of Sharu.  This book wasn’t the greatest I’ve read, but it was enjoyable.

It starts just after Lando won the Falcon, and he’s in a dive trying to earn enough credits to make it off that rock, when he learns of an incredible treasure on a nearby planet.  So he decides to take off for that planet in a hurry, more so because he’s being chased out of town by a security officer because a Sabaac cheating device was planted on him.

He teams up with a droid and a decrepit alien along the way to claiming this treasure for the mayor of this backwater planet.  There are twists and turns along the way, but it’s pretty linear.  What is great about it is Lando’s charisma comes across in every single page of dialog.  He was always as smooth as he was on Bespin.

You also learn he’s not a fighter because those who choose to use a blaster begin to think with it, instead of their mind.

Check out this book if you have a free afternoon.  It’s definitely worth the time!
