    1. L Neil Smith isn t a bad writer, and these stories aren t bad, but seemingly every decision made in their creation is totally nonsensical We are establishing Lando s background in these stories broadening his character, exploring his milieu, and giving him some touchstone adventures But while we nominally start off with Lando doing his actual thing gambling and he occasionally returns to the sabacc table throughout the adventures, the central narrative is totally foreign to Lando He doesn t know [...]

    2. I wasn t holding out hope that the series would improve with its final book, and I wasn t disappointed It s just as boring and inconsequential as the previous books, and about as much a part of the Star Wars universe as a Clint Eastwood movie.The antagonist from the previous two books, Rokur Gepta no, I didn t remember his name I had to write it down so I d remember to mention him by name appears again, confirming that he was going to be the antagonist for the series Lando defeats him in a battl [...]

    3. At last we come to the conclusion of the trilogy that is the Lando Calrissian Adventures I have to say that this is probably my favorite book in the trilogy A new alien race is introduced, the Oswaft, and I m happy to note that the author took the time to describe them in detail if only this much effort was put into Lando himself Issues building up from the past 2 books have been resolved, although Deus Ex Machina was again used to give it a good ending not that I m complaining.My only gripe has [...]

    4. There s still a lot to enjoy with this final entry The characters are great, the central concept fantastic, there s some great scenes and bit of humor throughout But this one felt rushed than the last two, with the plot messily constructed with some sloppy use of non linear twists And the way they wrap everything up in the end is a bit underwhelming That said, this is a series of books I wish could have just kept going on and on with its gonzo space adventures.

    5. I think a lot of Star Wars fans wonder what Lando Calrissian did before Bespin and back when he first had the Millenium Falcon and I would include this as part of the Star Wars Universe timeline but maybe or maybe not an essential part It is really repititive with the Don t call me master thing but I liked the payoff at the end The villain Rokur Gepta in the end is pretty disappointing.

    6. Finally done definitely not good but not horrendous either all in all at least much less of a slog than The Han Solo Adventures.

    7. Despite L Neil Smith s attempts to tank it, this ends up a fairly decent story and enjoyable read It doesn t feel like Lando is in it much, since Smith spends some time wrapping up threads of supporting characters from the earlier installments which is a nice touch as well as introducing some new supporting characters while channeling his inner Diane Duane with a sprinkling of Marshak and Culbreath this aspect does not always work as well, since it is intentionally obtuse for most of the book, t [...]

    8. L Neil Smith wraps up his Lando Calrissian series with this uneventful entry In this chapter of the continuing story, the titular character and his mechanical co pilot, Vuffi Raa, encounter a species that can live in the pure vacuum of space, the oswaft For reasons that were somewhat fuzzy to this reader at least, Lando and Vuffi decide to assist this species, which is dealing with starvation due to a siege from the Centrality Navy why the Centrality cares about this species of manta like deep s [...]

    9. This was not a good way to wrap up the Lando Adventures It was boring.I also felt that the amount of smoking was greater than in the other 2 Lando books We don t see much smoking outside of the cantina and Jabba in the movies, so I found it a bit ridiculous.Lehesu is an Oswaft, a race of aliens who are persecuted and now endangered They live in the ThonBoka, a cloud of dust and gas in space Lehesu calls on Lando and Vuffi Raa though really, the Millennium Falcon for help I like how the Oswaft ar [...]

    10. An entertaining read It s pretty much a stand alone story along with the previous two titles in the series Lando Calrissian and the StarCave of ThonBoka is not really connected to the overall Star Wars mythos, other than the setting being during Lando Calrissian s ownership of the Millenium Falcon, as briefly touched upon in Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back What have you done to my ship I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between Lando and his droid, Vuffi Raa I ve always been a fan [...]

    11. I really like some of the concepts in this one The Oswaft and the Silentium add a new and interesting to the variety of life in Star Wars and i would like to see them used However like the other 2 these stories are just not that good For one if you removed all the cigar bribing, and someone getting out or around any situation by getting people to sabaac even millennium old giant space manta rays this book would loose like a third of its subject matter It happens so much in all three of these st [...]

    12. What starts as one of the beautiful descriptions of a Nebula culture turns into one of the tense impending Imperially induced genocides that could possible happen Lando, a millionaire from his last adventure, has decided to help a strange and undiscovered alien race, earning millions in the process But now the sinister and savage enemies, tired of being thwarted, have had their associations with the Empire bolstered Boxed inside a blockade, Lando has only one shot to use his mind to his best [...]

    13. This one is getting one star than the first two books All my issues about them are still basically there, but either I ve gotten used to it or there was something to this book that the others didn t have.Actually, there was Lots of plots and pieces from the first two books where sort of explored and explained here, which meant it tied everything up very nicely The only thing I feel really cheated out of was seeing Lando being an actual con man, and not just being told that he is one That would [...]

    14. Simply put, the worst book I ve ever read Dull, tedious, the only redeeming feature is that it was so short although it certainly didn t feel like it As close to unreadable as I ve encountered and I wouldn t recommend it to even the most ardent Star Wars fan.

    15. Not as many plot holes and logical lapses as the others in the trilogy, but still suffers from the all the other issues characters with zero individuality who exist only to drive the plot forward, too much sabaac, mediocre writing, and a Lando who doesn t act like the Lando from the movies.

    16. A good ending to the series The author wrapped it up a little too quickly for my taste, but all of the ends were neatly tied up, if a bit too compact I enjoyed the plot of this one than the second We need Lando

    17. Again another quasi Star Wars book I must admit that this one was a little fun if not strange to boot We finally see an end to all the chasing of Lando and find out the origins of Vufii Raa.
