Han Solo, cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon, just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. Then a mysterious stranger offers Han a fortune in exchange for some less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper.

The story takes us into Han and Lando's world of less-than-savoury characters. Not a bad story in itself, but it is light on the Star Wars flavour and very long. The narrator gets two thumbs way up.

Solo's Eleven. That must have been the two word pitch for this tedious affair.

This was made bearable by the narrator's uncanny impressions of certain beloved Star Wars characters, most notably the smoother-than-smooth Lando Calrissian. But even so it felt like it dragged on far longer than it should have, with needlessly convoluted schemes and world building.

Timothy Zahn is a clever author. But this time around I just felt he was trying to out-clever himself, and tell a story that wasn't particularly Space Operatic.

Bad twist at the end, I expected better from Zahn.
