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.
Set years after Return of the Jedi, this stunning new action-packed adventure rockets us back into the world of Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Luke Skywalker, while introducing a host of exciting new characters. Darth Vader may have been redeemed and the Emperor vanquished, but peace can be fleeting, and evil does not easily relent. 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 story, terrible accents
I'd recommend it to massive Star Wars geeks like me, obviously. Not sure how much others would really get out of it.
I'd love to go into detail, but... spoilers.
The general narration was fine, and the background noises and special effects, as well as music taken from the first six soundtracks, added authenticity.The accents, though... Lord, the accents. I'm not sure if Marc Thompson has ever heard a British person speaking. Listening to Rey, my favourite character from the film, was actually quite painful. I kept hoping she'd stop talking and not keep sounding like a sulky cockney with weird vowels.And yes, obviously, Rey is not "British", nor are General Hux or Captain Phasma, but the actors who play them are (or in the case of Gleeson, doing an acceptable impersonation), and the narrator is *trying* to sound British. For someone who makes a living through narrating audiobooks, I think it's a little unprofessional to be this awful.
Yep. But I won't go into detail here!
I'm trying not to think too hard about the plot holes and hoping someone will wave their hand in front of my face and just say "These aren't the plot holes you're looking for."
