Lucasfilm kept tight wraps on the storyline of The Force Awakens (for good reason), so books that included major plot points were not released to readers until after the film hit theaters. But as the film is rolling out in digital and Blu-ray formats this week, it’s time to see what new Star Wars books have hit shelves in the past few months, what’s releasing this week, and what’s ahead.
This novelization by Alan Dean Foster paints a faithful reproduction of the action of the film with a few added bits of dialogue and a scene or two that was left on the cutting room floor. The writing lacks a certain energy, but die-hard fans should check it out if only to see if they can tease out new clues about Rey’s background. (Hopefully its not a virgin-birth-ish parentage that mimics that of Anakin Skywalker.)
