    Thanks to Del Rey Books for the free advance copy of this book. ? This was so fun to read! Lots of authors I already loved, and I discovered a few new-to-me favorites. ? These stories are all so nuanced and thoughtful about what life for peripheral characters in the movie mig...

    A sequel to the amazing "From a Certain Point of View: A New Hope", this book is forty short stories celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of The Empire Strikes Back. Unfortunately, lightning doesn't quite strike twice here. Whereas the stories in that first vo...

    Hard to believe it?s already been 3 years since the first From a Certain Point of View randomly showed up in the middle of Star Wars canon and showed that despite many of its failings, Disney (and Del Rey) could still produce decent stories in the franchise. Now the Disney/Del Rey...

    3.5 ?Rounded up. While I did enjoy the first book more, that in no way means this was disappointing. My favourite stories were: A Good Kiss by: C.B. Lee The Truest Duty by: Christine Golden Wait For It by: Zoraida Córdova Standard Imperial Procedure by: Sarwat Chadda ...

    A collection of 40 short stories taking place around the events of Star Wars Episode V : The Empire Strikes Back. Some stories are good and deserve a 4-star rating whereas a few are average and worth a 2-star rating at best. Some stories involve secondary characters and follow closely ...

    Some fantastic stories here but also some pretty average ones. I tell you one thing the Star Wars Universe owes Gary Whitta and his "Rebellions are built on hope" line from Rogue One because every author writing a story about the rebellion uses it. I did enjoy getting to see ...

    - I absolutely love how many of these stories focus on Leia?s work, and how helpful she is. She?s a great leader and person, and this book exemplifies that. - I don?t like how often inappropriate language is used (even ?ass? and ?pissed?--Star Wars should be friendly for...

    My favorite Star Wars books as a kid were the ?Tales of?? series edited by Kevin J. Anderson. Those books imbued the Galaxy Far, Far Away with the sense that Greedo, Dengar, Bib Fortuna, and the hundreds of minor background characters from the films each had stories of their own....

    Really fun book. I wasn?t sure what to expect but I liked the layout. The side stories followed the plot so you knew exactly what scene they were at during the stories. The writers did a great job almost making it flow like one writer by referencing parts of other stories and such. ...

    Get the Audible version if you can. I love, love, love this series. ?Behind the scenes? stories told from the point of view of innocent bystanders, lookers on and the occasional slightly-more-intelligent-than-we-thought alien animals. You know, one of those extras in the bac...

    To think I almost missed this book, I kept seeing a Certain Point of View and thinking it was the Star Wars (The New Hope) version, days before it came out I realised I realised it was the Empire Strikes Back reciving the FACPOF treatment. Like the first book it is difficult to giv...

    I am convinced that there is untapped potential for provocative and exciting literary experiences within the confines of pop genre material like Star Wars. This book doesn't help. A fun concept. Impressive dedication to theme. Not well executed. Two back-to-back stories by...

    For the longest time, until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story came and now shares that no. 1 spot, it was The Empire Strikes Back that was my absolute favorite Star Wars movie. So when I heard news about this book, I was pretty excited. And let me say that it was a lot of fun to read this s...

    I'll hide my thoughts on specifics stories under a spoiler tag, in general terms I don't think I enjoyed this anthology quite as a much as the first one, it felt like there was a higher proportion of mediocre stories although, as before, there were a few truly excellent stand...

    Man, this was disappointing. It honestly made me question my earlier review of the similar A New Hope novel, as I distinctly remember enjoying that a whole lot. This movie doesn't really lend itself to "40 random short stories from other characters" as well as A New ...

    Actual average rating: 3.07 Stars. Trying to review anthologies is always hard. I never fully know how I feel about the book as a collection and have trouble picking out the most important things to talk about. Firstly, this is a collection of stories told during the time of The Emp...

    The author line-up for this book still blows my mind and it?s been SO much fun to see what some of my favorite authors did with these characters. Plus this short story collection really does an awesome job diving into side characters (including some that I would never have guessed wo...

    this one was better than the short story collection for "a new hope" (might be biased bc "the empire strikes back" is probably my favourite), but including Hank green and letting Mackenzie Lee write Obi-Wan should count as a hate crime this one was better than t...

    I definitely enjoyed this volume more than the New Hope version. I think that may have been that the background characters in Echo Base and Cloud City were more appealing to me. Plus we get multiple Bounty Hunter chapters which was fantastic! ...

    Star Wars is really dumb and really amazing at the same time and this book perfectly illustrates that by wildly switching from being incredibly good to incredibly stupid every few pages. ...

    Overall a stronger (if less tonally-diverse) collection of short stories than the ANH entry. My personal favorite has to be Seth Dickenson's utter deconstruction of the Empire - and by extension, fascism - in his story revolving around the captain of the Star Destroyer what gets s...
