That's a matter of opinion DE , I enjoyed the books MORE than the movies to be honest. While I LOVED all the movies the books gave me years many more years of life in the Star Wars galaxy and enjoyment.
This dose take some of the steam out of me for the up coming movies "not sure how old you are DE but I was in the theater in 1977 watching the first movie at the age of 19" and I've been there since the beginning. I even got my son hooked when he was 3 and wore out the VCR tapes of the first 3 movies many times before DVD came out.
This is like getting hit in the balls by a force kick to me and I'm not happy at all "pi$$ on Disney". Old George might not have like the books but he sure took the money from them didn't he & Disney could have done the same and let us and all the great writers of the books enjoy the Galaxy far far away. But its not about us its all about the $$$$$$$$$ isn't it.
As for Chewy still living, the books did it right you cant go on fighting and not loose close friends its just the way battle is some must die. It was his time, & saving his best friends children, what a way to go "A Hero and being in the right place at the right time for his friends" . Its how it should be and the only way for Chewbacca to go "what more would he have wanted ?" !!!
I guess I'm done reading Star Wars books for good after 30 + years. I,ve read every book "except for the comics just not my thing" with the exception of Tarken and I wont be reading it now no sense in it as far as I'm concerned. I feel as though I lost a close friend as stupid as it sounds, I looked forward for every new release of the next book. Now its time for the withdraw to start LOL
I'd like thank all of you for your reply's and letting me know about the demise of the books "as much as I hated hearing it".
Again Thank You, DJW
