The Courtship of Princess Leia's place in Star Wars lore is assured because it's the novel that introduced the Hapans and the witches of Dathomir into the Star Wars Expanded Universe. That being said, it's really not worth the read. The central plot involves Princess Leia having to choose between Han Solo and the wealthy, charming Prince Isolder; the terrible romantic comedy cliches don't stop there, complete with C-3PO reduced to playing Han's wacky sidekick (there is one admittedly funny scene in which he sings a song extolling Han's virtues) and Han Solo, the romantic lead, deciding to undertake a bizarre stunt that would normally get someone arrested but somehow wins the heart of Princess Leia. And therein lies the problem with The Courtship of Princess Leia: the reader is never in any doubt about the outcome of the love triangle. Author Wolverton attempts to solve this problem by introducing yet another love triangle, with Luke Skywalker finding himself the object of affection for a witch of Dathomir, whom Prince Isolder also falls for. The outcome of this love triangle is also never in doubt. The plot feels as if it takes forever to get going (especially early on, when it borrows a plot twist from Spaceballs!). The action picks up somewhat when the characters reach Dathomir, but in the latter half of the novel, the central villains fail to register as significant threats. The novel is well-known because of elements introduced within it, but it's not exactly a fun trip to a galaxy far, far away.

I just recently got introduced to Star Wars EU. As a big Fan of Leia and Han, I decided to read this book which involves them. This story was well written by Dave Wolverton, that as a reader you become part of the worlds and can see the creatures and humans that are described in the story. The tittle makes the book sound like a romance story, but like anything related to Star Wars it’s an adventurous story, which includes action, suspense, and mystery. Also, I really enjoyed the comedy in the book, which in this case C-3PO gets the best laughs by becoming Han's "wingman" when trying to win Leia back.

The only thing I did not like about the story (and mainly because it didn't make sense to me) is that Leia becomes attracted to another man, which makes her think that she no longer loves Han. Having seen all 3 movies from the original trilogy and read The Truce at Bakura, it gave me the impression that they when through a lot for them to officially initiate a relationship. So, it made no sense when Leia wants to end their relationship after one minute of having met a “handsome prince." But, I guess this had to be the main dilemma of story in order for it to exist.

I finished it after a good friend inspired me to start reading the Star Wars novels.
It took 22 years and a summer Internship out in the wilderness for me to wake up and realize what I was missing out on in Star Wars' fantastic Expanded Universe. As all Fiction (and even some Non-Fiction) books should do, which transport you and have you imagine that you're actually living the story, I was captivated by the great story telling, the familiar and also new and mysterious characters who I wanted to know more about.

The Courtship of Princess Leia was a Novel that actually got away from me when I was child. I had the book as a youngster, tried to read it, but never finished it and the book is somewhere misplaced in storage. I was too young and I wasn't ready. But after my rebirth in the American Wilderness I bought the book along with other Star Wars novels and enjoyed it immensely.

I personally recommend this to all the Star Wars fans out there.

I was a little disappointed with this book. For one thing, the author gives Luke superhuman powers- whatever happened to the more brash Luke? I can understand growing and maturing in the Force, and all that- but then there's also the slight fact that he seems to regularily do things without effort using the Force, without even pausing to think about it. It gets old, after a while.
And Han Solo was totally unlike the character we remember from the movies. Come on, who ever heard of using a Gun of Command just to get someone to go on a space flight to a planet with them?
On the other hand, the plot line does have some interesting points, and Teneniel Djo is an interesting character.
Nice try, Wolverton. Try to make the characters a little more realistic next time.

I have been trying to read as many EU books as I can before The Force Awakens comes out and I had skipped over this one until I read the X-wing series and wanted to know what happens to Zsinj. Well I had thought this book would be a little mushy due to the name but I couldn't have been more wrong. Fantastic book showing how Han and Leia's relationship has been strained and Luke's continued journey to becoming the greatest Jedi in existence. Not too mention plugging a lot of holes I had left myself regarding Isolder's connection to the heroes getting a great view of how the Hapans do business. Excellent read.

I enjoyed this book. It was great how George Lucas used the idea of the nightsisters and Dathomir for an episode of clone wars. I hope lucasfilm continues to use more ideas, planets and characters from the expanded Universe.

I bought the hardcover edition from an amazon market place seller

This honestly was a huge disappointment considering the author is considered to be of pedigree.

Both Han and Leia were written appallingly out of character and whilst the premise was quite promising, the execution was nothing short of dire.

This is dreadfully written fan-fiction, gussied up with an official cover and a publisher behind it. Save your money and just rewatch Empire/Jedi if you are looking for a dose of Han-Leia romance, because the scenes between the two in this book come NOTHING CLOSE to capturing the chemistry and sizzle between those two, whether they were throttling each other or making oogly eyes at each other in the dark corners of the Falcon.
Nothing not to like about this book. Watching Solo win the hand of Leia. Great plot and we'll written. I 'd love to see this story extended.
