2/5: "The Last Jedi" by Jason Fry

The Last Jedi (Star Wars) - Jason Fry

A novelisation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (Go figure!)

There were some nice expanded scenes with Rose, her sister Paige and Finn (particularly highlights were pointing out his innocence), but also some very odd typos that should have been caught – a paragraph that repeats half a page later, some out of place speech quotes and this paraphrased howler:

“He was a permanently scowling man who watched them approach, scowling.”

I’d long for the days of Alan Dean Foster, who wrote the novelisation of Star Wars IV, but he didn’t such a grand job on The Force Awakens either.

No one seems to give a damn that some of us might want to read these books, rather than own them as merchandise.
