Review by Bones, UK, 2011:
"The Adventures in Hyperspace series again struggles to find the balance between catering for a young audience and staying loyal to the Expanded Universe and again it succumbs to silliness. This particular volume contains wiggly mushrooms, Han the Humanitarian (who gives away spare gems), and Gamorreans being described as “playful”. The plot is just as uninteresting as the first: Han and Chewie go on a job for Jabba, Han’s stubborn impatience and Chewie’s love of the aforementioned mobile fungi cause problems in the negotiations, Jabba sends them to fetch a shipment of gemstones that are being mined by a race of enslaved plants. Chewbacca is revealed as being not only a closet horticulturalist but a secret fan of arena death matches where gundarks eat womp rats etc.
"The whole book is just silly. Not necessarily bad, just very silly."
1 / 5
