Description

Winner, 2017 APA Audie Awards - Science Fiction

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.

©2015 Alan Dean Foster (P)2015 Random House Audio

AS AMAZING AS THE MOVIE, IF NOT BETTER ❤

This novelization is awesome, I've just found out about it and couldn't stop playing it! I can't wait for The Last Jedi to come out in audiobooks as well to get more details about Rey and Ben

Adds a bit to the Movie

If you enjoy star wars you will enjoy this .However i would recommend watching the movie first as the emotions have more impact when seeing on the faces of the actors for the first time . The great part of this novelization is that it has all the bits from the movie plus extends quite a few scenes and dialog as well as contain some that were probably cut from the movie. No spoilers i promise one of the additional scenes has one of chewies coolest actions ever.

Narrator.
Marc Thompson is always good and for anyone who has heard his chewie voice don't worry a much better. voice has been dubbed in

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.

A fantastic production, the story, just the movie

Marc Thompson did an EXCELLENT job. His voices and acting were so well done, very expressive and easy to follow! Little sound effects that are known to be in Star Wars audiobooks make this a fun read too.
I was disappointed by the lack of additional information that I thought the novelization might provide. I almost got the impression that JJ Abrams said to Alan Dean Foster that he shouldn't go much beyond the screenplay. There are some scenes in this book that I assume were edited out of the final cut, but are here in the book, which is fun too. I have read other novelizations that have more densely filled in thoughts and some background/back story more effectively. This felt like a simplistic book with a few ten dollar words thrown in. An example of a fabulous novelization was Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover. He filled in the many, many gaps left by an overly-edited movie and actually made the story better than the movie had been (not hard to do, I grant you). This novel did not make much of an effort to do that. I'm just glad I listened to this and didn't just read it.

Excellent

What did you love best about Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

Excellent production, very layered. Marc did a fantastic job. The sounds, from a laser to the atmosphere were absolutely engulfing

A Nice Companion

overall, this was quite enjoyable. Well paced and well written. Extra bits are nice cause they add some depth and fill in a few gaps that didn't make it into the movie. BB-8 effects were a welcome surprise!

Good narration, although it can be a little jarring as some of the lines were delivered by their on screen counterparts in a way that wasn't necessarily reflected in the novel.

One thing though, the soundtrack is taken from the prequels and a few times the Anakin/Padme love theme is used and it just doesn't fit. it would be nice if they'd have been able to get the Force Awakens music.

A Fantastic Movie

As I said with the title, this book feels more like you're listening to a movie then a actual book. The author's style falling to a more applied theme that you would expect more from the script of a movie then a novel, which isn't by default a bad thing. It made the story easy to digest, entertaining to listen to and kept the plot constantly progressing at a good pace.

Mark Thompson's performance was theatrical at best, and agitating at worst. A fact that was quiet saddening to me personally because I'm a big fan of Mr Thompson's work in other productions such as the Old Republic series, but his performance in the Force Awakens was way to emotionally driven, especially in regards to Rey and Kylo Ren's internal sufferings. Now, I understand 'why' it was done like this, but the fact remains that the over emotional expression to me personally wasn't enjoyable.

Overall, the book was a good listen and is great if your new to Star Wars or wish to have a better understanding of the context in which the movie takes place.

Though, it is far from the best book in the franchise.

Just a great FUN listen! Like the movie? LISTEN!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be better than the print version?

Of course this is better... it is a performance!

What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

Exaggerated? Yes But it's a Star Wars book... it's supposed to be bigger than life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Duh.

Any additional comments?

This is an ideal companion piece after seeing the movie. Got to relive it and brought a smile to my face. If you liked the movie and you want to have fun all over again then listen to this. The music and effects just enhanced this listen. If you don't like that kind of stuff you will probably not like it. Being a Star Wars nerd, I liked it all.

Great performance but doesn't add to the movie.

The narrator and production values of this audio book were great, among the best I've heard on Audible. However, I was expecting the story to add a bit more to the movie. To add more deleted scenes and help me learn more about the characters and Star Killer Base etc. Apart from a few extra scenes of Princess Lea and one where we learn how Poe got off Jaku everything was more or less exactly what was in the film. It still gets four stars from me because I love the film!

This book helped to tide me over until the DVD comes out, but I probably won't listen again.

Additional sound.

The background SoundFX have been nice but are quite destraktiv and sometimes to loud. In one light saber fight the sound clashing sound goes on for far too long after the moment they stopped fighting. I prefer audio books without sounfFX. Music thoug was really cool Id liked to have the original movie soundtrak.

Good restart of Star Wars - even if you know the movie, you learn a few more details from the book.

Gutes Hörbuch

Etwas ausführlicher und detaillierter als der Film.
Die Soundeffekte unterstützen die Atmosphäre.
Der Sprecher stellt die einzelnen Charaktere durch unterschiedliche Stimmlage und Effekte gut dar.

Ich muss sagen, dass es mir sehr gut gefallen hat! Das liegt auch daran, dass es viele neue Szenen gab die nicht im Film vorkamen.

Blockbuster (Kopf)Kino

Ein kleines Bonbon, bis zum Erscheinen der Bluray/DVD.
Atmosphärisch dicht vorgetragen mit kleinen Original Sound und Musik Schmankerln.
