First Stars Wars Book I’ve Ever Read
I’m in awe of how good this book is. I’ve never read any Star Wars books because of how convoluted they are in the sense of this is Canon or not, and now Disney this and Disney that. I could not put this book down. To say it is elegantly written would be a crime. The characters are so well developed, and the emotion flies right off of the pages into the reader's psyche. It’s engrossing. Read this book rather, you are a Star Wars fan or not.
I really liked it! I’ve loved Star Wars since I was 7. Wayyy better than I expected, not for young kids, it’s fine for teens (I think because that is when I read it). You can really feel the struggles of these characters. The characters were deep and had each their own beliefs and ideals, they had hard times but overcame them. So overall a great book. Totally recommend it...
One of the best novels that replace Aftermath
Trust me the Aftermath trilogy makes NO sense (based on research done on the entire trilogy) This book literally replaces the entire Trilogy as a whole. I would recommend that new readers pick up this book instead of Aftermath.
Also the battle of Jakku does not happen until the very end of the novel (spoiler), but it was great getting a recap on past events.
