So... Aftermath... <Spoilers>

Post by coronhorn » Wed Sep 16, 2015 9:09 am

So I just finished reading Aftermath and I was wondering how many of you my fellows have as well and what you think of it.

I personally found it to be an interesting read, I wasn't a big fan of how the author jumped around and had interludes that went in entirely tangential directions but I get why it was likely done that way as this book is basically setting the foundations for the new SWU.

In the end the big take away for me is that it looks an awful lot like a certain blue skinned grand admiral is going to be playing a large part in the new SWU. I suppose just about anyone could be the mystery man at the end of the book that's been pulling all of the strings but the clues all point directly towards Thrawn to me.

What do y'all think?

And if it is Thrawn will we be actually seeing him in TFA come december or will they be keeping him more in the shadows for a later reveal...

I didn't...I didn't know the book existed until yesterday.

Don't know about Thrawn, seems a bit more likely to be Supreme Leader Snokes to me, but then I haven't read the book yet.
