Reviews Most Wanted

  • Nicis
    Based only on this book (I haven't seen Solo yet) I FREAKING LOVE QI'RA. Give me all the problematic faves. She's so smart, she's ambitious, she has done a lot to survive and she really cares about Han, even if it takes a lot of danger fot that to happen. She's what Rey could have been with a little more personality.Han is amazing too, smart, always the lucky one, the bad with words that makes friends everywhere he goes. There's a lot of mumbo ju...

    I had a hard time getting into the beginning but my desire to know all the things about Qi'ra saw me through. Really liked all the turns the plot took and the way the relationship between them wasn't forced at all. I'm excited to see Solo again with this backstory in mind!

    I don't really read Star Wars tie-in novels but I loved Solo so much that I had to splurge for this one. It's way more about Qi'ra than Han, but gives beautiful depth to her arc as the struggling street kid who wants to do good but whose brain leans more heavily towards pragmatism. If you liked Solo as much as I did - and that's a lot - and want a highly readable YA adventure prequel to fill in some gaps, this is for you.

    2.5 starsI went into this hoping it'd be good. I was really banking it on being better than what I've read is part of the "Solo" plot.And most wasn't all that bad.Qi'ra and Han begin by contesting to be Head of their gang, run by Lady Proxima. It's weird to me from the start, because they're oldest among some Rodians and other humans, yet the White Worms don't like to have a Rodian or human be their Head.I like how there are other gangs, and the ...

    Most Wanted was fast-paced, entertaining, and gave great insight to the characters Han and Qi'ra of the new Star Wars movie, Solo. I loved all of the background about their childhood growing up in the slums of Corellia. Han's knack for picking up languages and improvising his way out of sticky situations were prominent in this story, which made him an enjoyable main character. Qi'ra was too cute, although still fierce. While this story was primar...

    This book was surprisingly good. Nothing against the author’s talents, but I was very surprised at how interesting a story about Han and Qi’ra set before the new Solo movie could be. Much like Catalyst was a great prequel or set up to Rogue One, Most Wanted was a great setup for Solo.Han and Qi’ra aren’t what you would call friends. In fact, they are competing for the same position in Lady Proxima’s White Worms organization. However, wh...

    3.5 stars, rounded up to 4. Really helps you better understand the relationship between Han and Qi'ra. Fast paced and lots of fun. Carson's story in the "Canto Bight" collection was my favorite, and she did a great job with this one, too. Hoping she gets more opportunities to tell further stories in the new canon.

    Prequel to Solo: worth taking time to readWhile you can enjoy Solo without reading, I had finished just over half before seeing and the opening made much more sense knowing the world of Corellia in more detail. Well-written and fast-paced, it lays out elements of what you'll see fleshed out and give more impact to the story arcs in the film.

    junto con catalyst, una de las mejores novelas-precuelas que he leído de las nuevas películas de star wars. no he podido ver aún 'solo', pero por lo que acá se ve, qi'ra es un personaje extraordinario, bien construido, con una profundidad muy inusual en las mujeres de la saga. ahora iré a verla con mayor entusiasmo.
  • Nathanial Garrod
    This book was a fun quick read aimed at the 6th-8th grade ish crowd, I think? Or maybe even up to 10th? Han and Qi’ra meet and go on adventures. Gives some context and setting for the Solo movie, but also could be missable if you’re not interested in going deep on Star Wars.
  • Chris
    A prequel novel to a prequel movie, with Han Solo! This book was a lot of fun to read; it was fast-paced and contributed some cool world-building which I hope continues in the 'Solo' movie.
  • Dominic
    some interesting characterization for Qi'ra, which helps shed light on her decisions in the film, but an otherwise forgettable plot.
  • Steve Harville
    I loved this book it’s an absolute must read to get the most out of the film!
  • HobbitFromPA
    I liked it, but didn't love it. Think there have been stronger books of late than this one. It is nice bit of prequel to the Solo film.
  • Levi Carter
    more back story, set before Solo.
