    WOAH. This was so much better than the novelization of TFA! And I actually liked that one, but Jason Fry's work feels like, like, a real book. Like something completely new even when you can tell the source and not just a retelling of events in a screen.

    A lot of new scenes, a lot of thigs that aren't mencioned in the movie (Snoke's background and past, How did Rey managed to beat Kylo at the end of VII, Ben Solo's past as a padawan and feelings, Leia's memories, Maz force sensitivity information

    A lot of new scenes, a lot of thigs that aren't mencioned in the movie (Snoke's background and past, How did Rey managed to beat Kylo at the end of VII, Ben Solo's past as a padawan and feelings, Leia's memories, Maz force sensitivity information, Luke's Ahch-to years, etc.), details that conect this to the other books of the CEU and TV shows, more deep in every character and a clearer picture of what could be EPIX. Canto Bight is still the weak-

    part, but the BB-8 POV helps a lot (it also help how Rose is more defined here). Now I need that my paperback arrives to being able to fill it with post-it and tears.

    Ps. There's a scene at the end with Leia and Chewie that had me crying a lot :( Why wasn't that in the movie? :((((

    Easiest 5 stars every. I am a huge Star Wars fans and loved the Last Jedi movie. I love this book even more then the movie. It does exactly what a book should adds to the story , adds to my Star Wars experience and great continuity between the books and the comics. Some people do not like having read other books/comics or play the game. I love this continuity. I am so glad Disney continued it when they took over the franchise.

    From the intro the book starts with Luke having a Force dream telling

It does exactly what a book should adds to the story , adds to my Star Wars experience and great continuity between the books and the comics. Some people do not like having read other books/comics or play the game. I love this continuity. I am so glad Disney continued it when they took over the franchise.

    From the intro the book starts with Luke having a Force dream telling him a change is coming. There are honorable mentions to people from the Aftermath series, and an incident that happened at the end of the aftermath comics. There is also a reference to the Inferno Squadron. The context of this is a bit confusing which could be hinting at things to come. They do also mention bits from Leia Princess of Alderaan.

    The character development is also great I like the fact that Rose did not just forgive Finn for his attempted desertion. I saw her attitude change slightly along the way. Poe’s change from hot head fighter pilot to a leader is also better developed in the book. Finn’s journey is also done well. Remember he did not actually join the Rebellion in the Force Awakens, what he did he did to save Rey. This is carried on in the book. Remember the movies have a very little gap between the movies.

    All in all a great addition to the Star Wars universe. I have heard there is an extended version of the movie when released on the Blu-ray I hope it is as good as this. I loved this book. I even like the extra 8 page of colour photos in the centre. The book is awesome and I would have loved it to be extended by another 200 pages. This is a must have for all Star Wars fans.

    This really picked up in the second half. Enjoyed the scenes between Rey and Ren, especially, and thought the author added a lot to those scenes, and especially the conflict between Ren on whether to stay dark or go back to the light. I am neutral on the whole shipping debate. Personally, I have always pictured them as siblings, but don’t really have a dog in that fight.

    I also found it interesting at the VERY very end where it was included

    Star Wars novels are always hit and miss, and the movie novelizations almost always seem to be misses. This one was somewhere in the middle.

    A good movie novelisation needs to expand on the film. If it’s just an exact repeat of what we saw on the screen then it’s just not worth reading. It gives us nothing new.

    Star Wars novels are always hit and miss, and the movie novelizations almost always seem to be misses. This one was somewhere in the middle.

    A good movie novelisation needs to expand on the film. If it’s just an exact repeat of what we saw on the screen then it’s just not worth reading. It gives us nothing new. What this book expanded on was the connections between characters. Leia’s ability to sense through the force was considered in greater detail. She could sense her son and the conflict within him, though she has by this point almost given up any hope that he will return to the light.

    It’s unsurprising after what he did in Episode VII. Rey, on the other hand, believes that he has the potential to turn again. And this was something that I felt was much stronger in the writing here. When she met Luke she was disappointed in his lack of motivation; she looked toward another source of power and knew that he could possibly be good again. Although the connection was fabricated by Snoke, it felt more powerful and genuine in these pages. Their destinies are linked together no matter how it all ends.

    As such, the main plot line was very engaging; however, the side plots were a little lack lustre. Finn and Rose were quite boring to read about. Poe was a little better though there was nothing new in these sections of the story. The pace was slow, but that is because the film was very slow at times. For me this is only good in parts.

    When the Last Jedi hit the screens last year it divided fans. Many liked the new direction Star Wars was taking, and just as many thought it no longer stayed true to itself. I’m of two minds. I appreciate the newness but I’m not ready to celebrate it yet. For me, it all depends on how episode 9 finishes. This is the middle of the story and I can’t fully judge it until I have seen the end.

    Overall, it’s a good novelisation of a film that may or may not be great. We shall see when it all finishes.

    ...I hate myself...

    Like... I hate this ship but I also love it?

    Also, did Kylo Ren learn how to propose from Mr. Darcy?

    Cuz literally, that whole "You're nothing, please rule the galaxy with me" thing Is like when Darcy proposes to Elizabeth the first time and he's like "You're poor and your family sucks and I've tried my best not to love you but for some reason I do, marry me." And Elizabeth is just like "Umm, no... why are you telling me this?"

    Star Wars Connections touches more on this with their Reylo theories. You should check out their podcasts, they are excellent.

    Alright, I'll see y'all again for more speculations when this is published.

    Dec 28, 2017:

    It's been two weeks since I watched The Last Jedi, my FIRST EVER Star Wars movie. The characters', stellar acting and plot completely blew me away.

    I can't wait to see how the novelization will bring more into the characters' minds and actions.

    March 2018 cannot come by fast enough!

    Also- Really looking forward to both Rey (Badass female protagonist) and Kylo Ren's POV as he's one of the most interesting and conflicted character I've ever come across.

    If these two don't get married & have the best behaved children in the galaxy, I think I might cross over to the dark side. #triggered #haterswillhate #evilspaceprince

    This is watching Anidala all over again.

    I'm already bracing myself for all the possible scenarios. Love never works out in Star Wars. Nevertheless, I am persevering with this. Doomed? Impossible? Sexual tension between arch-enemies? Sign me up.
