Is the NJO that bad? Is it not worth even starting? I tried to read Jedi Search a few months ago, and it was god-awful, piss-poor writing that I really, really don't wanna put myself through. If NJO is the same, I will not bother.

The Jedi Academy series seems to be hit or miss to some people. Vector Prime was good (I actually read it before the surprise at the end was publicized), Dark Tide was actually fantastic (though like I said, I like Stackpole and he develops the Yuuzan Vong well), it was Agents of Chaos that really sapped it for me. Took years to get through those books. Balance Point is where I am, which is shocking when I read that Vector Prime is like 10 years old. Though I hear those two are the low points of the saga.

So much has been spoiled now as it is (I know most of who dies), but I'll finish them some day. I hear Star by Star is incredible. I'd say at least read the first three and see if you can stomach AoC. They're not the worse Star Wars books I've read (that dubious honor likely goes to Planet of Twilight and the non-Lando segments of The Black Fleet Crisis), but they sure didn't hold my interest.
