    "I live abroad and wanted to find the best resource for watching American TV while I'm out of the country for a while. I've found Hulu to be my go-to steaming platform for all my favorite American TV shows. The plans are fairly priced and you can even upgrade to a no-commercials plan, which I have and love. It's well worth the extra money. I get to enjoy all my favorite shows on-demand with no issues so far. I highly recommend Hulu to everyone."

It was so good that I ordered the e book version and paperback from Amazon books. The story is captivating, fast paced and exciting. You will enjoy it and I give it a two thumbs up!"

      "Boba Fett is one of the most fascinating 'minor' characters in entertainment history. Any works that add more background to Fett are worth a look. This book is a great dive into the bounty hunter's world."
