Entertainment Weekly Praises Zahn’s ‘Heir to the Empire’


Star Wars fans should check out a great article at EW.com praising Timothy Zahn’s Star Wars: Heir to the Empire. Check out what reporter Christian Blauvelt had to say about Thrawn:

“Unlike Vader and Palpatine, Thrawn was no Manichaean symbol of evil, but an incredibly charismatic and even sympathetic foe—Erwin Rommel crossed with Sherlock Holmes—but just as deadly.”

I should caution readers that there are several spoilers in the article, but if you’ve read the book and want another angle on why it’s great then you should read the full article here.
