Topic: Order 66

I wasn't sure if there was a topic specifically on this or not, and my search wasnt yeilding anything, but I am posting this on borrowed time here... I was just so excited!

Ok Karen Traviss' Order 66 comes out today! I got it at Borders on my lunch break and was so happy to find that it was on sale ( same with the force unleashed... both hardcovers big_smile)

I figured this can be where those who are interested can talk about it, although I am not sure if this in in the correct forum. (move it if you think it fits better elsewhere....)

I didn't even get into the real part of the book, and Im already buzzed! But there is one mistake that I thought was funny! For those that have read the books might be familiar with how KT starts the books off with a list of the main characters. Well they have Etain listed as male. A small thing , yes, but funny to me! I can't wait to read more! Enjoy.

Re: Order 66

I picked it up, and is it just me, or does the new cover suck. Because I REALLY hate it. WAY too cartoon-ish. It should be good, its just ugly to look at.

Re: Order 66

no likes the cover. books sounds interesting, but i wish to read Death Star, TFU, and the two Bane novels before part 3 comes out.

Re: Order 66

In October, the original cover will be on the paperback. But I still hate it. It doesn't fit the others AT ALL.

I knew I made the topic.  Might as well continue it here.  But note the cover.  I think the softcover one looks much better.  But I couldn't resist buying the hardcover just because I wanted it so bad.

Sorry Sev... I posted it at work originally (was too excited to wait until i got home) and was in a rush as i didn't want to get into trouble, I thought there was a topic.. but couldn't find it when i did a search for it. Didn't want to steal it from you.

Im currently on ... page 46... and Im enjoying VERY much. I'm trying to slow myself down when reading it so I can savor how much fun it is. ( I have a bad habit of reading SUPER fast so often, even more so when I am excited.) I'll be nice and not spoil anything for anyone in a post.

I agree that the cover is certainly not what I would design. Im tempted to get the paper back just for the different art work. This stuff is... cheap looking... ( come on Terra back me up  here)

In response to Fett_II:
There is going to be a third Darth Bane book? I had not heard.. this is good news. I liked the first two. If you didn't love the Sith or the dark side you will after those books. Death Star was interesting, better than I had anticipated, actually.  The quality in SW books has come a long way from Splinter of a Minds Eye. I am waiting until i finish the game of TFU before reading the book, so thats on the shelf... waiting.....

This now means officially I have 105 SW books.... and I am missing so much it seems sometimes.

Re: Order 66

I'd say you've got the majority of SW books, Si.

And yeah, I'll probably get the paperback just because it looks cooler. Still don't love it, but its better than this.

You might be surprised how many I'm missing. Like all of Legacy...... some of NJO... the list goes on.  But its ok, I enjoy the hunt.

Re: Order 66

Ok. I've got a lot, not counted them yet, but I don't even think I've got that many. I've got the X--wing Series, part of legacy, about 2/3 of NJO, a bunch of Jude Watsons little books, and others I don't remember. And RepCom. Individual books too.

Re: Order 66

Its in Serious Geeking, so I'm guessing thats this.

Finished the book. It was amazing, and I'm DYING to read Imperial Commando, because Order 66 doesn't quite finish everything off.

Re: Order 66

Yeah, I kind of powered through it yesterday. But my mom offered it to a sick friend, and now I've got nothing to read. If another friend had returned True Colors, I'd be reading that, but alas. Hes had it for a year, too. I need to beat him. Multiple times.

Re: Order 66

Oh, forgot about those. Ummm...I have probably read most books, that just seems like a lot. The Jedi Twilight series (is that the first books title?) is good, but have only read the first, and only the first Darth Bane. I think I've read almost all the major books (that is, the full-length novels, etc). I can't think of much I HAVEN'T read. 105 just seems like a lot.

Have you read the X-Wing Series? Loved those.

Re: Order 66

W007463!!! I got Order 66. I love the cover, it is way better than the concept cover. When I first saw it I was like "Awesome cover!" I didn't notice it at first, but now that you pointed it out MandoGirl, I checked and it does list Etain as male. Fail.

Re: Order 66

See, I don't like the hardcover cover. Looks cartoonish, the visor is black, and what rifle is that? A DC-16? Cus it doesn't look like either a 17 or a 15.....anyways, I like the original, now paperback, cover MUCH better. Actually fits the rest of the other covers, kind of.
