last jedi is really good star wars all the way
Awesome! 💖 Star Wars and this book was to good for words!
Much better than the Force Awakens adaption. And for all of you people who are like, “WHAT!!!!!!,how do bombs fall in space!?” Obviously the resistance techs would have thought of that. Either the bombs were magnetic, or the Dreadnought was so large it generated some of it’s own gravity. Maybe both.
After eagerly anticipating this film tie in, I devoured this book in an entire sitting! Although I had a few issues with the plot itself feeling hastily thrown together, the quality of the author's work itself was excellent. Extra scenes add a little more insight into the history and characters, however I was still left with more questions than were answered about particular plot points, such as the backstory of Snoke and Phasma. The sudden revelation that Rose has about her feelings for Finn felt slightly more genuine than was achieved in the film, but this is to be expected, even if it did feel cheesy both times. All in all, I enjoyed this book, it filled in a few more gaps, even if I was left wanting a lot more! We will just have to wait until the next movie!
I mean, this was exactly what it promised to be. The movie, with some character thoughts sprinkled in for good measure. I'm not going to lie, it's getting 4 stars pretty much because I loved the way the Kylo Ren scenes were written. Love me a good ol' tortured soul. As with all the extra Star Wars things I consume, I want all the Kylo Ren information because we know so very little about him even though he's our big bad guy who doesn't seem to want to be 100% bad. I RELISHED every look inside his head because this is CANON, people. THIS IS WHAT WE GET. Not speculation or fanfiction. I know more about a forgettable stormtrooper who literally has done like, 2 things ever in his life than I do about this delightfully twisted villain and now I'm in a rant that I didn't mean to be in. The power struggle between Kylo and Rey is what makes this new trilogy so fascinating and different because the line between good guy and bad guy is not exactly black and white, and I will continue to be here for that delicate imbalance. And a little bit of Poe's dangerous flyboy ways.
The one other thing this novelization did for me was to make me love Vice Admiral Holdo even more- she stole her scenes just like she did in the movie, and I will continue to love her despite everything. She was more concerned about protecting the light than looking like a hero, and that's one of the most powerful moments in the entire movie/novel.
With a few additional scenes that did not make it into the film, this novelization was the perfect read to tide me over until the home release of "The Last Jedi." If you didn't care for the film you probably won't care for the book, but I enjoyed both. The Marc Thompson audiobook narration was quite an experience, as always!
Better Star Wars books have been written (i.e. A.C. Crispin's Han Solo trilogy) but for fans of the movie "The Last Jedi," this is a must-read. It gives you some perspective about what characters were thinking during the film, explains some plot points better and also includes deleted scenes. One scene I liked was where Rey and Luke dance at a party. It is fleeting but it softens Luke's character more than the movie did.
