Retro Reviews: ‘Bloodline’ by Claudia Gray

September 22, 2020 at 5:35 am | Posted in Books, Random House, Regular Feature, Retro Reviews, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | 1 Comment

Bloodline by Claudia Gray, is an adult canon novel set roughly six years before the events of The Force Awakens. It was released in May of 2016.

I remember loving this book when it first came out. I was still inexperienced in reading books and so it took me a while to get into it. But when you combine Claudia Gray, politics, and Star Wars, you are sure to have a great book.

The first thing I’d like to point out is that Claudia Gray absolutely nails the character of Leia. All of her lines, her actions, her motivations, and her feelings felt completely in tune with what we see in the movies, and Claudia just makes me feel so bad for all the bad things in her life. Despite all of the good in her life, Leia has one of the most tragic stories in Star Wars, and this book shows how difficult public service can be.

The Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark is a short story collection, edited by Jennifer Heddle, and released in August of 2020.

I am taking time out of my usual bi-weekly reread through the canon to review the newest short story collection from Disney-Lucasfilm Press. As a huge fan of The Clone Wars series, I had high hopes for this book. And the authors involved *mostly* delivered. Below I very briefly review every story (including a letter rating), followed by an overall review at the end. Continue Reading Book Review: ‘The Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark’…

Retro Reviews: ‘The Force Awakens’ by Alan Dean Foster

The Force Awakens is the novelization to the blockbuster of the same name from December of 2015. The original screenplay was written by Lawrence Kasdan, J. J. Abrams and Michael Arndt, and the novelization was written by Alan Dean Foster.

First off, this is going to be a controversial review. I personally loved The Force Awakens movie when I first saw it, and I still love it. It’s one of my favorite Star Wars movies. However, I did not like the novelization of the film at all. I believe that this is a textbook case of how not to write a novelization. But I will blunt my criticism off the bat by saying that there are some great things in the novelization, well worth your read.

I’ll start with the positives. There are some great, short insights about Leia and her work with the Resistance and her search for Luke that are really good. It adds to the film for me and makes me appreciate Leia. I also love how Foster included several of the deleted scenes/dialogue for Leia and Han’s scenes, some of which actually was repurposed for The Rise of Skywalker, which I didn’t realize until this reread.
