Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content.



  • "The Last Jedi: Star Wars" left me with the same feeling as devouring a hollow chocolate Easter Bunny—disappointingly empty and lacking substance. I couldn't help but yearn for additional books to dive deeper into this story.
  • The narration in 'The Last Jedi: Star Wars' is fantastic, but that's about it. This new trilogy is incredibly confusing. I mean, if they have the capability to turn a cruiser into a hyperspace missile, why didn't they use it on any other ships when they were running out of fuel? And why didn't they utilize this strategy against the Death Star? Furthermore, how on earth did the Falcon manage to bypass a planetary shield in the previous movie? It just doesn't add up.
  • I really enjoyed this audiobook, as it made some minor and major changes that improved the overall experience compared to the film. One notable improvement is how it addresses the pacing of Rose's crush on Finn, by having her initially find him attractive. However, it still follows the same overarching story of going to Canto, which does slow things down a bit. On the positive side, we get a deeper insight into the mental dynamics of several characters, which was much needed to understand their perspective. Despite this, they still end up doing some of the same silly things as in the film. One of my favorite characters, Hux, receives a better elaboration of his emotional state and viewpoint, allowing us to see the universe from an "average person" perspective.
  • The narrator was absolutely incredible, almost god-like in how accurately he portrayed the characters. However, the story itself was quite disappointing and it didn't really enhance the overall movie experience to learn more about the characters' motivations. I only listened to it to help me fall asleep at night. I constantly find myself having to backtrack to figure out which dull chapter I was in before I drifted off.
  • It's widely known that "The Last Jedi: Star Wars" is one of the most polarizing films in the entire franchise. The novelization attempts to clarify some of the aspects that should have been better explained on screen. However, despite these efforts, both the movie and the novel fall short. Even the renowned Mark Thompson, who has narrated numerous Star Wars audio books, couldn't salvage the experience. Personally, I despised this movie and the novel only reinforces my disdain. The current decision-makers in charge of Star Wars seem to lack respect for the established legacy of these beloved characters. The movie is a complete disaster, and unfortunately, the novel follows suit. Jason Fry deserves credit for doing his best with the limited material he had to work with, but ultimately, the quality of the source material was abysmal, making it impossible for him to produce anything noteworthy. In my experience, this is the absolute worst Star Wars novel I've ever had the displeasure of listening to. Thankfully, the service allows for audiobook exchanges, which is a relief. This further solidifies my skepticism towards the new Star Wars Canon and my lack of hope for its future. If you strongly disliked the movie, I strongly advise staying away from the novel, as it only amplifies the perception of it being a disgraceful abomination to the Star Wars universe. Personally, I believe the movie already felt like a piece of fanfiction, and the novel only exacerbates that feeling. If you haven't already, I highly recommend exploring the expanded universe. Despite not being officially recognized by Lucasfilm, it still offers a level of respect for the characters and captures the true essence of Star Wars, unlike these disappointing sequel iterations.
  • It feels like this book was crafted as a sort of apology or explanation for things that people didn't like about the movie (I personally enjoyed the movie, but not every aspect of it). For instance, it delves into the reasons behind Admiral Ackbar's departure in a way that wasn't shown on screen, among other topics.
