About Jack Teng

Born in Montreal, Canada, Jack later moved to the West Coast (Vancouver) to do a doctoral degree that involved collecting many thousand ticks in the Okanagan Valley. He wasn't thrilled about the ticks either. Later, he dabbled in small-scale organic farming for a few years, during which he simultaneously developed an aversion to kale and fancy salad mixes, as well as the realization that farming wasn't all that lucrative. He now lives with his wife in Boulder, Colorado.

Personally I loved this book, my only problem was that it left me wanting more. I loved the switch around of characters and think that the overall concept was both original and really well executed. From underground salad growing Wompas to interstellar drug running, this really was a great read. First and foremost though, I'm pretty sure that I, Tim is fully intended as a tongue in cheek alternative perspective of the Star Wars universe, not any kind of George Lucas inspired carry of the series.

Loved it and will recommend.

I have watched 5 of the 6 stars wars movies, The concept here is interesting but the plot did not follow my memories of the Star Wars universe. I was leaning towards 2.5 stars as I did not finish it, but went with three stars as I Read 46% before putting it down.
