I realize this thread might go far afield of this question, but if at least someone could please offer an opinion:
The wife and I have been reading Zahn's Thrawn trilogy. This is her first time and my 3rd or 4th. We've both been enjoying it (as far as I can tell) and I've toyed with the idea of following it up with Spectre of the Past and Visions of the Future. And then maybe Survivor's Quest and Outbound Flight. I've never actually read those last 4, since they were published after I stopped reading EU, thought I did really mean to since they were by Tim Zahn. I picked up the 3 hour abridgements and found I didn't like them much. However, the 3 hour abridements of the Thrawn trilogy are also mostly terrible too, so I've decided I can't judge a book by its 3 hour abridgement.
Anyways... here's my real question. For those that have read both Survivor's Quest and Outbound Flight, which one should we read first. As I (half)listened to both of them, I noticed that they had nearly the same plot. In one, Luke was uncovering the events from the past and in the other C'Baoth and the others were living through the events as they occurred. Survivor's Quest was written/published first... so my inlcination would be to read that one first.
IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!
