    Description

    Go beyond the film with a novelization featuring new scenes and expanded material.

    As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has learned of a sinister Imperial plot to bring entire worlds to their knees. Deep in Empire-dominated space, a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate...and a threat that may be too great to overcome.

    If the worlds at the Empire's mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire's military; Chirrut Îmwe, a blind holy man; his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters. In their hands rests the new hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion victory - if only they can capture the plans to the Empire's new weapon.

    But even as they race toward their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate enemy - a monstrous world unto itself - darkens the skies. Waiting to herald the Empire's brutal reign with a burst of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.

    Better than the movie!

    I absolutely loved this book! It did the characters justice in a way that a two hour movie couldn't. The narrator was excellent as usual. The music cues and sound effects made me feel as if I was immersed in the story. There's nothing like listening to an unabridged Star Wars book.

    Okay! This is more like it.

    What did you love best about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

    I have written reviews of other Star Wars novels that I was less impressed with, mainly because they were light on story and long on the talky-talky. I complained about the lack of action- stuff happening. I realize this book is based on a screenplay for a movie- which, by the way, I HAVE NOT seen yet, this review is solely based on the book- so the translation from the visual medium is going to contain the "something happening every ten minutes" paradigm that movies follow.

    Things happen in this book, things happen a lot, and the things are action packed. My contention is that books can do the same thing and be wildly exciting. Instead the books that I reviewed moved at a glacial pace and included very little tension.

    Stuff happens. Boom!

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jyn is the character that we follow the most and get to know best. Probably her. She's a less principled and ballsier Princess Leia, but she is also a young child who hasn't been allowed to grow up. I'm excited to see the portrayal in the film.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How much can you say without giving away the story? Spoilers... I guess.

    Many of the characters meet their final fate in the story, and a couple of them die well. There were characters that I liked a lot, whose names I can't spell from listening, that I would like to know more about. The Guardian of the Whills is a character I knew existed in Star Wars lore (and it's pretty much a lock that somebody will write about soon) but we have never been exposed to before. He's described as "the last of the Guardians," and that's too bad. His passing was a moment that gave me pause.

    Any additional comments?

    I have read every Star Wars movie adaptation since TESB before I saw the movie. Ep VII and Rogue One I LISTENED to before seeing the flicks. It doesn't take away from the movie when I see it. In fact I believe it enhances the experience. I suspect, when I see it, I'll find Rogue One to be the best SW movie since 1980. The audio book was wonderfully written and produced, masterfully read by Jonathan Davis. I'm such an Alan Dean Foster fan that it's hard to decide which book I preferred. Rogue One is the better story, in my opinion.

    I haven't listened to Episode VII a second time, but I'm certain I will listen to Rogue One many more times.

    But first I want to see the movie!!!

    great lead up to a new Hope

    great story of sacrifice and dedication to liberty for all no matter what the personal cost ..about how it took a lot more than just a farm boy / padawin and an X wing to take out the Death Star.

    A must have for any Star Wars fan

    What did you love best about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

    Side stories are a new addition to the Star Wars world. This is a strong start for may side stories to follow. No spoilers here - but you will love the action and feeling in this story. A great mix of new and canon elements.

    A Star Wars fan needs to listen to this to really understand rogue one.

    This audiobook contain so much more information than the movie. Without the audiobook I would've been lost for the first half of the movie. This is a great story but it's way too deep to try to show on the screen while introducing a plethora of new characters. The multiple information snippets in the story are also fantastic. Highly recommended and I have read over 50 Star Wars novels.

    Pairs well with the film

    This novelization expands on a few things we miss in the film. Most notably, it really brings out Jyn's character, who for the most part of the movie feels like a spectator to her own events. Definitely worth reading if you liked the movie but I think the novel is not a good stand-alone; it needs the film as a companion.

    I didn't care for the sound effect transitions between chapters, but the performance was good and clear.

    Great lead in to A New Hope

    This story was well written and makes for a great lead in. Admittedly, I did not like Jyn Erso early in the story but her growth throughout the book had me loving her by the end. I liked Imwe and Baze and thought K2SO was great. I guess the character I just never learned to like was Cassian Andor. He is part of this new "Kind of" good guy thing that seems to be happening throughout the Star Wars stories.

    The end of the story was very well written and brought out the reality of Rogue One's fate. Without a doubt it made for an action packed, realistic ending to such a story. I have not seen the movie yet, but definitely look forward to seeing it now. I always prefer to read the book first.

    As usual, Jonathan Davis did an excellent job narrating. I never worry about annoying voices or bad reading when I see Jonathan Davis listed as a narrator.
