Friday Monday, which means we are over at Kirkus for our regular weekly column!
Today, Thea is taking over with a review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens novelization by Alan Dean Foster…
Like many other people, Thea loved the new film for so many reasons–so when the novelization was released, she eagerly scooped it up to see if there were any insights in the novel that could give any early hints for Episode VIII. And… there are SOME insights and extra scenes in the novelization that are totally worth reading (LEIA and HAN in particular, gaah, my heart)–but there is also some incredibly lurid prose to slog through (Kylo Ren: saturnine of aspect, tortured of mein, is he). Get the full review here. (And yes, the review is spoiler-free for both the novelization and for the film!)
