Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thanks to Shadow and Bone fans I decided to start this series after the conundrum of college – yes, I missed out on entertainment news due to my coursework, rare to hear but it happens amongst college students – and invest in this fandom that has spanned many years. I saw this movie two weeks ago and have to say, while it’s good, Alan Dean Foster made it even better. He filled in the cinematic plotholes that prevented the live-action from being excellent and included a little more depth to the characters, namely Kylo Ren. I wasn’t a fan of Alan downplaying the interrogation scene (come on, Kylo releasing Rey’s bonds from the interrogation chair doesn’t lessen his abusive actions in that scene) or changing Han Solo’s death scene to make it seem like Kylo felt bad at that moment when he clearly wasn’t in the film, but other than that I enjoyed this adaption. The writing is excellent, has enough details, and the plot runs smoothly. I look forward to reading The Last Jedi next!
