Lando going to blob races was hilarious - yes, it's just like what it sounds - blobs of goo bred for racing and traversing and obstacle course. I wish such was real. I'm a huge fan of "blobs" as aliens in SF. Another reason to like Schlock Mercenary. But I'm getting side-tracked.
This book was not particularly fast-paced or extremely engaging. It's not a Zahn or Sanderson book, but it was good. A nice, pleasant, relatively slow read. I'd recommend it if you enjoy Star Wars and the adventures of its major characters.
The end, the rescue of Han, which turned out badly, and the discovery of some hidden Imperials was a nice twist, and was actually pretty cool.
