    One thought on “The Force Awakens - A Junior Novel”

    1. How do you call it when a shorter JUNIOR novelization is actually better that the adult version?Because despite some (expected) "juniory" clumsiness, this novelization of TFA and its portrayal of the characters was, for the most part, way more effective than its adult counterpart.

    2. Πολύ πρόσφατα είχα την χαρά να δω την ταινία ο Τελευταίος Τζεντάι την οποία και ερωτεύτηκα ακαριαία. Αποφάσισα λοιπόν πως ήρθε και εμένα η ώρα μου να μπω σε αυτόν τον κόσμο που δημιούργησε τόσο καιρό πριν ο George Lukas και οι χαρακτήρες του. Δεν είναι εύκολη υπόθεση να καταφέρεις [...]

    3. It was a good book, it is just the book version of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". The only problem I have is that the book didn't really have the correct details from the movie.

    4. Enjoyed being able to listen to this on an audiobook on downtime :D It made me excited for when the Last Jedi book comes out in March!

    5. Yes, I listened to this version, too, read by Jonathan Davis (and, on the audio recording, at least, credited to a different author). It's stripped down, compared to the Marc Thompson version--just narration, no music or sound effects, and adapted to about half the length, though there are some details that aren't in the other version. This version of the audiobook improves as it progresses--because of the way it's written, the number of times poor Jonathan Davis has to say "FN-2187" in the begi [...]

    6. На вълна "Междузвездни войни" съм. От доста време се каня да започна някои от книгите. На мен тази ми беше интересна. Имаше различен поглед върху някои любими сцени и други по-подробни. Е, аз може би съм малко пристрастна. Забавлявах се, докато я четох.

    7. I actually kind of like this more than the “adult” novelisation, as this one is a bit more engaging and gives each character more of a personality. The style is also more evocativeIt is quite short and to the point, though, so you get the bare-bones only, but I think it just works better than the “adult” oneAlso, Reylo fans will like the wording here more, I think.

    8. Muy buena novelización de la película El Despertar de la Fuerza. Ágil y entretenida al igual que la película, ofrece un poco más de detalle que la película para entender mejor algunas de las motivaciones de los personajes, en especial de Rey y Finn. Vemos también algunas escenas que finalmente no se incluyeron en la película, como una maravillosa escena de Chewie justo antes de rescatar a Finn y Rey del planeta de la Base Starkiller. Maravillosa escritura y una adecuada traducción.Sin e [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this version of the story. There are some differences between the book and the movie. There are some additional character elements in the book not in the film, and this book feels like a sequel to Before The Awakening. I recommend this book. Not the audiobook does not have sound effects or music. It's a quick listen and I liked it better than the Alan Dean Foster version

    10. Estoy muy contenta pensé que en este mes no iba a tener ningún libro terminado, pero este fue tan fácil y agradable de leer que lo pude terminar y eso que le dedicaba unos minutos al día. Este libro ya saben que esta basado en la película de, El Despertar de la Fuerza y como tengo una obsesión no pude evitar leerlo y más porque estoy en espera de la novela del, Último Jedi. En si es un libro entretenido que aunque es fiel a los sucesos de la película podemos encontrar algunos extras sob [...]

    11. Es una muy buena lectura para profundizar la historia de la pantalla grande. Contesta muchas de las preguntas que quedan latentes al ver la película y profundiza acentuando las emociones de los personajes principales.De rápida lectura y buen estilo, hizo que me guste más la historia que al ver la película.

    12. All right, this saved my opinion on novelizations. So, so, soooo much better than the obtuse "adult" version, as the writing was clearer and honestly a lot prettier.

    13. Kogge has a nice sense of what reads as "Star Wars"-y and the added details about Poe's escape from Jakku, etc compliment the film nicely. I really appreciated the added detail around R2's sudden "awakening" that help explain why he didn't just hand over the plans in the first place. It's always nice when the novelization is true to the film but smooths out or expands things in a way books can where films can't.

    14. Very well done. I actually quite prefer this version to Foster's novelization. I feel it's far more fun and exciting and emotionally engaging. Lots of great character moments. Similar to Foster's novel it includes scenes that explain how Poe got off Jakku. Unlike Foster's novel (pretty sure) there's a BRILLIANT scene focused on Chewie immediately after THAT THING happens.

    15. This is a perfectly fine adaptation for kids who have seen the movie and are interested in getting a little more backstory on the characters. The best part is the cover---which has heroine Rey front and center, right where she should be!

    16. This junior novel is so much more emotionally gripping than the adult novelization. Sometimes, less is more.

    17. This is the novelization of The Force Awakens that I wanted. Much better than the adult novelization. If it was beefed up a bit (it was abridged a little to be a junior novel), it would be perfect.

    18. The title of my book is Star Wars The Force Awakens, by Michael Kogge. The main characters in the story are Kyloren, Princess Leah, and Darth Vater. In the beginning of the story they went to battle and they got lightsaver swords. In the middle of the story they met Darth Vater, Kyloren and R2D2. This book is full of action and has some pictures, which help you see what’s going on. You will have to read this book to see what happens by the end ! What I really liked about the book is the charac [...]

    19. It was a risky question -- "Hey kids, pick an audiobook for us to listen to." My son (age 8) immediately requested something Star Wars, and we chose the Audible version of The Force Awakens. I'm not a Star Wars fan, but was willing to suffer through. This was fabulous!!Keep in mind that it was meant to please an 8-year-old, so the junior novelization was perfect in terms of language and content. We enjoyed this story every day on our commute. The narrator was excellent, intoning just the right a [...]

    20. I listened to this book via Audible.As the title suggests, this is the junior adaptation of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. If you've seen the movie, you know how the story goes, and there aren't a lot of surprises here. There are some additional insights, and you see some scenes that were cut from the movie, meaning you learn how Poe escapes and some other things of that nature. I enjoyed getting to see things from the perspective of the characters, since you can get inside their head [...]

    21. The book was pretty good in my opinion. The story is about how the rebellion have the last piece of the map to Luke Skywalker. But the First Order is after it and will do anything in there power to stop the rebellion. The First Order builds a super weapon called the star destroyed. It has the capabilitys of destroying entire solar systems. So they do, they destroyed the Republics star system. The rebellion then makes a plan to destroy the star killer base. Han Solo, Rey, Finn, and Chewy fly in a [...]

    22. This isn't a review, just a reflection of a few things. 1. I can never really distinguish if they were fighting with a lightsaber or a sword because the book names them both as blades during battle. Okay, never mind really. I just learned and saw an image of Ren's lightsaber.2. Why did it feel like Rey had feelings for Finn? I'm not here for "girl has first ever encounter with boy and can I make it anymore obvious?" People can be friends, Martha. But I'd also like to point out I am only here for [...]

    23. Imparable de leerMe gustó la trama, el desenvolvimiento de la historia y su final. Ya ví la película, me pareció grandioso poderla entender luego de leer el libro.Es una historia fácil de leer y muy entretenida.Se la recomiendo a todos aquellos que le gusta esta trama de ciencia ficción aunque no es apta para eruditos en literatura.La historia me hizo expandir mi imaginación, nada es imposible, sólo hay que tomar acción.

    24. Cover: 4/5Story: 3/5I mean I’ve seen the movie and this is basically just a recap. I tried reading the adult version and was so bored. This one was a much easier read and I really liked the additional scenes and dialogue. Some of the scenes made more sense after reading this. Reread? Maybe. Although I will be keeping it anyway for my collection and just in case one of my kids decides they want to read it. Challenges:2018 Challenge 2018 Mount TBR Challenge

    25. It's fun to read and gives nice insight to what the characters are thinking, but it sucks out the fun of the dynamics Finn has with Poe and Rey, so it loses star from me. there were some cliffhangers which managed to make me turn pages for the plot! despite that I've seen the movie more times than I can count.

    26. I liked that things that were not shown in the movie were written about, like how Poe made it back to the Alliance. I also appreciated the internal monologue of the characters, which provided more insight into who the are as people then you get in the movie. It is nice when the book you are reading to your child is so fulfilling!
