This is the first book adaptation of a film that I've read and the first I've ever wanted to. There are of course many Star Wars novels, none of which I've read. I wondered what sort of money-grabbing, hastily edited crap I might be delving into. Though in the opening pages there was some awkward la...

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS by Alan Dean Foster is the seventh book in the Star Wars: Novelizations series. It is the start of a new saga within the Star Wars universe, and is based on the events of the film. The story begins years after the events of Return of the Jedi with the return of some fami...

This book was such a huge disappointment -- just go see the movie. The writing was hit-or-miss; some parts were good others were just awful -- the action scenes were the worse. The dialogue that hadn't been lifted directly from the film or had been altered was just awful. I never once felt like I wa...

When movies are made from books, the book is almost always better. When books are made from movies, it's generally the movies that come out on top. And that pretty well sums up my feelings for this book. The movie was much better. Alan Dean Foster's writing just doesn't float my boat, which is why...

I just decided that life is too short to finish this. I adored the movie, but the writing is sucking the life out of the fun parts, and adding weird sexual assault subplots, and generally being kind of terrible. No way worth slogging through for little bits of missing scenes, or Poe being a woobie.I...

Novelisations used to be my bread and butter. As a kid, I adored them, they'd always be the first thing I'd look for when I liked a movie. I think most of my indifference to this book is me having grown out of that. And some of it is the fact that Foster, who has a long history with Star Wars, has a...

No spoilers! As a novelization based off of the screenplay, this book doesn't quite have the impact of the movie, but it gives some interesting insights into the characters and their motivations. I really really liked being able to get inside Kylo Ren's head... He is honestly my favorite character...

I will forever be under the same spell as most Star Wars fans. I mean to say, slap a Star Wars sticker on the front of anything and I will stand in line for hours to buy it. This spell must also be the reason I don't entirety regret the 9 reading hours or $20 I spent on the book.I have to give Foste...

The novelization of the movie provides some further insight into the thoughts of some of the characters and adds some extra background information that the movie glanced on or ignored. But the book could've used an extra fifty pages or more because everything felt rushed and each scene just abruptly...
