A New York Times best seller: The official novelization of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the blockbuster film directed by J. J. Abrams.
More than 30 years ago, Star Wars burst onto the big screen and became a cultural phenomenon. Now the next adventures in this blockbuster saga are poised to captivate old and new fans alike - beginning with the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And alongside the cinematic debut comes the thrilling novel adaptation by New York Times best-selling science fiction master Alan Dean Foster.

Yet the simple belief in good can still empower ordinary individuals to rise and meet the greatest challenges.
So return to that galaxy far, far away, and prepare yourself for what happens when the Force awakens.

Great listen after watching the movie

Would you listen to Star Wars: The Force Awakens again? Why?

Of course, That's why I bought it and didn't rent lol.
I'm not a big fan of dramatized audiobooks, but this one walked the line perfectly. great sound effects when appropriate.
The movie had to cut some scenes that are included in the book, that's the main reason to read the book...or you can wait for the extended version of the movie on Disc (you know it's gonna happen).

What other book might you compare Star Wars: The Force Awakens to and why?

Most starwars books. It's good like that.

Which scene was your favorite?

...No spoilers

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

2 sittings, but honestly I walked around alot while listening.

Any additional comments?

It's worth the money, it's like watching the movie but without people in costume sitting next to you :)

Listen to this AFTER you see the movie

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. A few scenes are extended and (of course) give more detail on the thoughts of the characters. But even better are the scenes that are included which were not included in the movie.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

No Spoilers.

Any additional comments?

Again... go see the movie before listening to this audio book.... but then after that, get this book and listen. Marc Thompson, as always, does an incredible job of really sucking you into the moment.

I have seen a review or two that claim this book adds nothing new if you've seen the movie and nothing could be further from the truth. Obviously there are no new twists that dramatically change things here, but it is in the subtle differences and additions that the book brings that will give you a bit more depth and insight not only to a number of the characters, but also to the overall story line.

The movie was good, but this book probably is even better.
