Review of Star Wars: A New Hope by Alan Dean Foster
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope - Alan Dean Foster,George Lucas

This book was the novelization of the original Star Wars movie.  I have not seen the movie in quite some time, but other than a few very minor points, I think this followed the film completely.  It was entertaining to read and as books tend to do, it had the reader look more deeply into the thoughts of the major characters.

Honor Among Thieves: Star Wars - James S.A. Corey

A pretty fun tale set between Ep. 4 and Ep. 5, this one captures the essence of Han, Luke, and Leia pretty well as they pursue a rebel spy (Scarlet Hark) planted deep in the Empire. The problem is she doesn't have the intel they need yet and Han is forced to join with her in pursuit of a rogue operative with the crucial information against the Empire. Fast-paced and well-written characters make this a good addition to the Star Wars novels.

William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope
William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, a New Hope - Ian Doescher

Friends, rebels, starfighters, lend me your ears. ~Luke Skywalker, Act V, Scene 4

 

My friends, I have made a tactical error. I should have read these books in the order in which they were written (4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3) instead of chronological order. If I had, I probably wouldn’t have noticed the huge difference in quality between Part the Third and Verily, A New Hope. It was rather jarring, like descending a staircase and not realizing I had one step still left to go instead of level ground. It’s a bit clumsy in comparison to the prequel novels, with more noticeable errors and an over-reliance on the Chorus. It’s still rollicking good fun, but I feel like Doescher and Quirk Books hadn’t quite hit their stride when this was produced.

 

Learn from my folly! 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3. And then 7, which I think is out now. And eventually 8 and 9. And possibly 10, 11, and 12, but now we're getting way ahead of ourselves.

Empire's End: Aftermath (Star Wars) (Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy) - Chuck Wendig

I've already stated (twice? three times? more?) how much I freaking hate Wendig's writing style. I guess I should have taken a break between Life Debt and Empire's End because it is reeeeeeaaaaaaaally irritating me now. Especially when I come across sloppy crap like this:

 

She feels the ship drift downward, drifting as it goes.

 

It DRIFTED while it was DRIFTING. The DRIFT was so DRIFTY he had to say it TWICE in the SAME SENTENCEYOU GUYS. THIS IS ME RIGHT NOW:
