Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
The Essential Chronology is a fun pseudo-history of all of the Star Wars adventures in all media. Taking the Battle of Yavin as the base year, all of the Star Wars events depicted in novels, comics, computer games, and films are placed in a historical narrative. The writers have included all of the available data and have a chart of the Star Wars universe and a detailed time line that lists not only the events but also the Star Wars tale in which the event is described. This is the sort of comprehensive overview of the history of the Star Wars galaxy in which fans will take great pleasure. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Ballantine/Del Rey, 193p, 28cm, 99-65085, $18.95. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Hugh M. Flick, Jr; Silliman College, Yale Univ., New Haven, CT, November 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 6)

    A VERY GREAT MUST READ STAR WARS BOOK!!!

    This book tells the Star Wars tale from beginning to end in a complex, intertwining, enjoyable volume. Tells of the Sith War, the rise and fall of the Empire, and many other interesting subjects such as Black Sun and Grand Admiral Thrawn. If you don't have the patience to read a lot of Star Wars books, this one makes up for it! PERFECT!!!!
