The Last Jedi (Star Wars: Novelizations #8) Reviews
I have a terrible flu so I can't write a coherent review yet ;__;
So, because I was bored, and it was the holiday, I decided to watch The Last Jedi LOL even though I heard some butthurt fanboys hated this movie.
Aaaaaaannd holy shit why is Adam Driver's acting SO GOOD???!! He delivers as Kylo Ren. I was mystified and confused because I don't remember liking him in the first movie. Suffice to say afterwards I s ...more
I'm trying not to write 'Aaaah' over and over again. It was really well done. Unlike TFA's novelization, the world was homey, lived in. The writing wasn't pedantic and kind of boring you with all of the multi-syllabic thesaurus entries it could teach you. It was just, really really good. I'm sure Foster is a great author, but I'm hoping that 9 is given to either Fry again, or someone up to the task of creating a tapestry, not telling us how to.
I am really having troubles while reading this book. I LOVE TLJ, but this book was not what I had
in mind for a novel from the movie. There is a lot of insight of the characters to me it was unnecessary. Kylo Ren was a robot in this book so different from TFA. Even Finn and Rose has some charism. But Kylo was so out of the place in this book and to said it was imense because Driver gave us
a perfect anti-hero that we love to hate/love.
WEIRD that I love the movie and almost despise this one. There ...more
Somehow she was certain of his presence—it was like a fleeting something captured in peripheral vision, or the tickling sensation between the shoulder blades that hinted at a presence behind you.
Goddamn, was this a good novelisation. Faithful to the movie while including a few extra cut scenes and moments, and expanding on the interiority & psychology of its characters -- everyone from Leia to Rey to Poe to BB-8 to freakin' Captain Canady (I really love the old grizzled Imperial veterans who ...more
Read Jason Fry's book for the very first time and was completely blown away.
He captured beautifully the emotions and the untouched scenes crafted by Rian Johnson. I'm glad we get a little tidbit into Snoke's mind, Hux's past, Luke's struggle on his heroic persona and Ben Solo's never ending disappointment in the people he loved that had failed him time and time again.
I may be the minority that loved the people Luke and Leia (and Han, may he rest in peace) had become. Like how Finn perceived Rey ...more
3-3.5 stars. Interesting and helpful to get some background and details on character motivations. Much of the story action made more sense.
The audio was well done with beeps, boops and booms in appropriate places. I did not care for Marc Thompson’s interpretation of Rose, though I liked his version of Luke.
It was a little hard seeing Leia in action in the story, knowing the woman who had inhabited her for years was gone.
All I want is to read about Reylo all day long so this better be good.
Also, Reylo is like Anidala all over again and my heart isn't okay...
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 ...more
