    1. I'm in a Star Wars kind of mood.So relatable.Grandpa Vader & Kylo memes are the best kind of memes.Because I'm Reylo trash. Because I'm FinnPoe aka 'Stormpilot' & Kylux trash. I'm just going to leave this here. Keeping up with the Solos/Skywalkers.I have compiled some of my favorite Star Wars videos. Enjoy.Anakin Skywalker - youtube/watch?v=Rarqzyoutube/watch?v=AnDHgyoutube/watch?v=wk0bRKylo Ren - youtube/watch?v=OJ10uyoutube/watch?v=HlcC7youtube/watch?v=wVSGayoutube/watch?v=bjfNRyoutu [...]

    2. I love the new Star Wars movie. I’d even go as far as to say that it is one of my favourite Star Wars films, ever. It just worked so well. The blending of the new with the old worked perfectly; it was emotional, action packed and really quite moving. As far as Star Wars films go, it was excellent. This, on the other hand, was very, very, basic. I enjoyed parts of it, but that was only because I had the excellence of the film in my mind’s eye. This did capture the urgency of the film; it had [...]

    3. “I’ve got a bad feeling about this”Yes, the signature and ubiquitous phrase is here as in all of the Star Wars films and novelizations.And as in all novelizations, the author is able to further expand and explain much of what was going on in the film. And this was a great film, the seventh in the wildly popular Star Wars franchise and this broke all sorts of records and made oodles of credits and made the Kessel run in 12 parsecs. The movie was all that and a $10 bucket of popcorn.But I go [...]

    4. Okay, this is ridiculous:Why is the date of the hardcover weeks later than the ebook? Is it to drive up download sales numbers on a hot item? Sorry, but that's absolute crap to treat people who would rather buy a hardcover over an ebook like that.I was excited for this and even pre-ordered it on amazon, but I just cancelled it.Also, do you really think it's a great marketing plan to release a hardcover book after Christmas, when it could have easily been bought as a gift?

    5. I read this a couple of years ago, and was thoroughly disappointed. The story is a re write of A New Hope and contains a planet 🌍 Death Star! Oh come on do something original, the Death Star idea has been worn out! The story brings back old characters such as Han Solo and Leia and briefly Luke but they don’t save the story in my opinion. This book offers no new insights, it’s just a bare bones carbon copy of a dire film. I hope The Last Jedi film and book offers me something new and not t [...]

    6. The remnants of the Empire have reforged as the First Order, led by a mysterious power known as Snoke. The Rebels, now branded the Resistance, attempt to protect the nascent New Republic. They are led by Leia Organa Solo, who's searching for her brother, Luke Skywalker, last of the Jedi, who vanished years ago. He left a map behind—most of it has been archived in the Empire’s library, but the last part is within a Resistance droid. This droid—a brave little snowman-shaped specimen named BB [...]

    7. Do not spend money on this book. As my old buddy Luke Skywalker says, “What a piece of junk!”Others have pointed this out, but I must reiterate that this book is just the movie in novel form and nothing more. You might be tempted to think that this could be a good novel - after all, Matthew Woodring Stover did a fantastic job with the novelization of Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. His novel explored characters’ motivations, and inner struggles. He gave the characters time to [...]

    8. NO SPOILERS HERE!I won't pretend this is an objective review, but as a first-generation and long-term but not uncritical Star Wars fan, I found the story both enjoyable and, more to the point, satisfying. I really appreciate the contrast between the surface humor and underlying pathos. The new characters for the most part are true winners. The writing here is workmanlike and unspectacular, but I love the full-circle nature of bringing back Alan Dean Foster, who wrote the original novelization of [...]

    9. Followed the movie pretty closely. There were a few extra parts (view spoiler)[ what happened to Poe on Jakku(hide spoiler)] and a few parts left out (view spoiler)[ Finn's lightsaber duel with the Stormtrooper(hide spoiler)], but generally pretty true to the film. It was a bit more cheesy than the movie. Also, the first 3/4 of the book seemed to cover the first hour or so of the movie. Because of this, it felt like there was a lot shoved in at the end. It was fun to go through the story again a [...]

    10. I waited for this book on hold at my library for two and half months. It wasn't worth it. At the same time, I'm glad I didn't give in to my initial impulse to buy it. That would have been a huge waste of $20. Unfortunately, Alan Dean Foster manages to take a great story and make it more pondering, less exciting, and inserts a level of cheese into the dialogue with his added and extended scenes (and even in some cases, changed lines) that ruins things that were good in the actual film.The stuff I [...]

    11. My first time reading (or rather, listening to) a Star Wars movie novelization and I really enjoyed it. The narrative follows the movie really closely, albeit providing a bit more insights into some occurrences which we didn't see in the movie, as well as the inner thoughts and emotions of the characters. BB-8 is given even more of a personality in the book and I absolutely adored it.I have to say that this novelization is best appreciated via the audiobook. The Audible production of Star Wars' [...]

    12. 3.5 StarsSo I mean, this wasn't the most amazingly-written thing in the world or anything. But I love Star Wars and I read this for fun, and it was fun. Plus it filled in some of the gaps in the movie's plot, so that was nice. If anything, this got me out of a bit of a reading slump.

    13. Let it be clear that I read this book quickly. Very quickly. That did not save it. I love this new Star Wars and admittedly, I am a new Star Wars fan. I loathed the prequels and I only like 4-6. I think it's a generational thing and the fact that I saw them so late in my life. I had already seen everything that ripped off Star Wars before I saw Star Wars. Now, I understand that Star Wars was the herald for all this, but it's tough to be impressed by the same old story. I loved the new movie and [...]

    14. This book answered a few questions I had after watching the movie .Some scenes looked different in the book, and some characters like Kylo Ren looked weaker and he seemed intereseted in Rey ;) that's why the second half was my fav because it was full of Kylo's emotion and thoughtsAnd in this book ladies and gentlemen you'll find plenty of proves that my ship will sail #Reylo :PSnoke: you have compassion for her. Anakin(episode II):compassion which I would define as unconditional love

    15. Pre-review notice: Although I gave this book two stars, I'm rather happy to acknowledge that Alan Dean Foster is an immensely talented author, and that this review shouldn't really reflect his authorship too much. In fact, his authorship heightens it from what should be a one-star review to the two-star that I'm generously giving it. So, The Force Reboots: The Novelization: The Mess. Good grief. Where to begin. Best way I can describe this book is that the weaker elements of the plot of A New Ho [...]

    16. Will it be revealed in Episode VIII that Rey is the daughter of an illicit inter-film romance between(view spoiler)[Luke Skywalker and Hermione Weasley???? It's rumoured that Luke disappeared and sought refuge at Hogwarts after the final destruction of the new Jedi Academy and before he went in search of the First Jedi Temple. Luke had a small role in the Battle of Hogwarts (credited as Darth Vadermortson), in which he exchanged his lightsaber for a wand. It's anticipated that he will return in [...]

    17. Dear god above that was almost physically painful to read. Alan Dean Foster appears to have watched "The Force Awakens" once or twice, written the novel in some language other than English and then run it through Google Translate to arrive at this ludicrous result. I think novelizations probably had a bigger meaning and were thus handled more seriously when there was actually some lag time between first seeing a movie and getting to see it again. Heck I remember reading some damn good novelizati [...]

    18. It was great. It was as entertaining as the film. For me it enhanced the movie experience adding more depth to almost every scene. When I started the book I had already seen the film 3 times so I knew all the lines by heart. Of course some of them differ from the novelization but that's to be expected. Not everything that works on page can be translated to the screen. I especially liked seeing how some concepts have changed while filming (view spoiler)[ in the book Starkiller base is powered by [...]

    19. Kažimo 3.5/5 ali ide na gore pošto su ovo ipak Zvezdani Ratovi :)Knjiga kao knjiga je kompetentno napisana. Manje više ceo film je tu prošaran sa gomilom sitnih detalja koje niu mogući u filmu (interni monolog i slično) i sa par ekstra scena da malo popune radnju. Što znači da na kraju dobijamo zabavnu knjižicu koja može da posluži kao fini podsetnik ako ima duže kako ste gledali film.Ili jednostavno rečeno ono što zamišljate to i dobijate sa ovom knjigom.

    20. Full disclosure: I only bought this because I was on such a Star Wars high that I needed more in my life. Also, I was secretly hoping for Kylo Ren soliloquies, which was kind of half delivered?This book was good. It's not the best tie-in ever, and it's definitely not the worst - it sits very middle of the ground for me. The novel obviously follows the plot of the film very closely, so I won't spoil anything here (but seriously, guys, it's been out two weeks! Get on that train!), with some depart [...]

    21. I loved this book but I just don't have the energy for a review at the moment. It was lovely and offered some good insights into the movie that, of course, left out some elements due to editing and run time.

    22. Description: Set years after Return of the Jedi, this stunning action-packed adventure rockets us back into the world of Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2,and Luke Skywalker, while introducing a host of exciting new characters, including Rey, Finn, BB-8 and Kylo Ren.Darth Vader may have been redeemed and the Emperor vanquished, but peace can be fleeting, and evil does not easily relent. Yet the simple belief in good can still empower ordinary individuals to rise and meet the great [...]

    23. GOOD SHIT.More dialogue, a lot more honestly and I really wish it was in the movie but I understand why they had to cut it.A little more info on every character and most importantly, more insight into my small angst-ridden son Kylo Ren.

    24. I’m working on the assumption that most, if not all of you, that are reading this have already seen The Force Awakens so I’m not going to dwell hugely on the story. A word of warning however, if you haven’t seen it then you should know there will be mild spoilers after the end of this paragraph. Don’t say that I didn’t tell you in advance. Got it? Good.The key question that may have crossed your mind is if reading the novelisation is worth your time or not. You’ve seen the film and s [...]

    25. Agh! - I couldn't take it anymore.As several reviewers have noted, this is a very disappointing novelization of the movie. The additional dialog and scenes do nothing to enrich our enjoyment of the film (assuming we enjoyed the film; if you didn't, then I don't think anyone's novelization would save it for you). In fact, whoever had a hand in chopping out all the extra verbiage and scenes from the movie did a fine job.Where's the Foster I remember from novelizations of "Alien" or "Outland"? Or f [...]

    26. Not great. Had I read it before seeing the movie I might not have seen the movie. I've no idea how the author managed to convey a captivating plot with incredibly interesting characters in such a way that I found myself skipping pages. Very mechanical rendering of the story, a few added scenes to plump it up a bit, but otherwise it read like a very dispassionate summary of the movie version. There were a few bits enjoyed, some added dialogue that clarified a few character's motivations, but if y [...]

    27. Like many fans, I cannot wait for the next movie to come out. Star Wars: The Force Awakens left me with so many nagging unanswered questions. The husband, family, and I have literally spent weeks theorizing what will happen next. It's like a spectator sport for us. We'll probably take bets on: Who's Rey's family?, Why has Luke been missing?, and, Can Kylo Ren be redeemed?That said, I had to read this novelization to try and gain some clarity. I gained a little, but not much. The book doesn't ans [...]

    28. Okay I gave this 5 stars but that is mostly because I freaking love Star Wars and it was half my childhood and my mother's before me (heehee). Anyway, I really enjoyed this book! It added a lot of insight to the film, and really delved into some classic and modern characters. If there are any Kylo Ren fans out thereREAD THIS. My only issue was the writing was kinda "meh". Not bad, just a little boring. But then, I don't think it was written to be a literary masterpiece.

    29. I read this when it first came out, shortly after the film. The story was so fresh in my mind, that the book was boring and so I skimmed a lot of it.This time, a few days before The Last Jedi came out, I read it again so I could get a refresher and be ready for the sequel. It’s still not as good as the movie, though there are a few extra scenes (that are canon) in here that make it worth the read I think. Not the best New Canon book, but who would expect that of a novelization?

    30. Great story, but the writing style drove me nuts. Didn't learn too much more from this book that I didn't glean from watching the movie. One of the few times I recommend the movie over the book without hesitation.
