Kind of inaccurate for people who have seen Rogue One (Probably about 90% of you), but fun. Remember, this book was written in 2008, Rogue One was released December 2016.

The first half/part of Death Star felt slow because all it was doing was introducing all the main characters and eventually getting their stories to all cross over or meet. Though this story wasn't bad, I thought it focused too much on the characters romantic relationships and love interests. Some of the guy characters, particularly Ruata, were just really dirty minded. It was kind of sad. The characters also drank a whole ton, and I found it surprising that they could do anything soberly. Anyways, I thought the part that explained how the Death Star was built, what went into its construction, and how regular people that weren't rebels were impacted was interesting. I thought it was cool for the authors to include Natashi Daala, (from The Jedi Academy Trilogy, Fate of the Jedi series, etc..), in this story, but it was also great that this story coincided with events from A New Hope, so we get to see classic scenes written in a different perspective other than from the point of view of Han, Luke, and Leia. The second half of the book with the scenes from A New Hope was definitely the funnest and most enjoyable part to read.

I found the relationship between Tarkin and Vader much different than the movie. In the movie Tarkin called Vader friend.

An interesting, in-depth look at some of the characters and settings we glimpsed in ANH, plus more. Meet the guy who pulled the lever on Alderaan, the imperial librarian who leaked the plans to the deathstar, the architect who placed the thermal vent in it's fateful location. This book hit all the right notes.

An entertaining look at the inside of the Death Star that brings together a wide variety of characters ranging from Grand Moff Tarkin to prisoners from the planet Despayre. Its fun to see the events of Episode IV-A New Hope being retold in "Death Star", but seen from a different perspective. The ending is too far-fetched in my opinion, but overall a good read.
