Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars
Not by the public obviously, but they hate books in general. With fans the Thrawn trilogy are universally loved. At school like 5 other people in my class had read 'em. More than had read Lord of the Rings.
I'm a fan and I couldn't get more than a couple hundred pages into Heir to the Empire
It was incredibly dull and I read a lot.
