Outbound Flight by Timothy Zahn

Thank you, Timothy Zahn!  My quest to read all of these books was in danger after struggling through Rogue Planet, but Outbound Flight was a great follow up to renew my motivation.

So I know that this book is super foreshadowing or whatever for the Thrawn Trilogy I’ll get to some day.  Actually, I read it a long time ago, but I don’t really remember a ton of details.  I think that actually helped because I wasn’t comparing any of the characters to the their future selves or whatever.  It was just a good book full of interesting characters.

There were several characters I really liked – Car’das and Lorana Jinzler come to mind.  I also found Thrawn’s story very interesting.  C’baoth was definitely not my favorite and his storyline was annoying.  But I think it was supposed to be.  I didn’t mind Obi-Wan and Anakin showing up, but if they had not been in the book, I don’t think it would have hurt the book at all.  They were just a little pointless.

This was a good read and a fun adventure.  It makes me look even more forward to getting back to the Thrawn Trilogy and meeting up with Thrawn again.
