Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron by Michael A. Stackpole
Review: Oh Star Wars, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways… Okay, I’ll save you from listening to my fan girly adoration. But I did like this book. It’s nice to jump back into classic Star Wars every now and again if only to remind myself of what a rich world George Lucas created. This novel takes place a few years after the events of “Return of the Jedi” and deals with the Rebellion’s feared X-Wing unit, Rogue Squadron, commanded by Wedge Antilles (who I always liked from the movies). Reading about dogfights has a distinct feel from seeing them played out on screen but it is nonetheless entertaining. I particularly liked that the way Stackpole maintained the chaos and frantic nature of aerial dogfights on the page.
