    Yeah, I just started reading Aftermath too. I don't like the writing at all, but the story seems interesting enough.

    Empire's End is really, really well-done IMO. I was 50/50 on Life Debt and disliked the first book.

    My son sent a text yesterday and asked if he could stay after school to wathc Episode IV in teh auditorium on Friday (today).
    I said he could...then it hit me...

    THE NEW MOVIE COMES OUT NEXT WEEK!!!

    I had been so busy with life that I had placed this in the back of my mind and had spaced it out completely.

    Oh man, I am just having to force myself to slog through it. There are some interesting tidbits, but man - I am not a fan of the writing, the pacing, any of it. I've been reading it since June-ish and am only about 2/3rds through. To put that into perspective, I am a voracious reader and did Deathly Hallows in about 8.5 hours.

    But hey,

    I've forgiven Chuck many things - he would probably detest my writing style as well - but in Life Debt where he has Han Solo say, "Stay frosty" well, he's lost me forever now. I've read the first two in the last week and I'm chugging through Empire's End, but I'm there for the story, not the prose.

    Far worse for me - I can't recall a single memorable quote or even story point. He is just so... forgettable. I struggle to remember what I'm reading AS I'm reading it.

    One more sleep to go
    One more sleep 'til Star Wars
    One more sleep 'til I see Hux die (not a spoiler - I've got no idea about the outcomes for any characters - just my wishful thinking)
    One more sleep 'til Star Wars

    One more sleep to go
    One more sleep 'til Star Wars
    One more sleep 'til Luke kicks some A
    One more sleep 'til Star Wars

    I've got two. :_|

    That said, concerning line 7 in your composition - if that doesn't happen, with old green, I am going to lose it. I can take any twist Johnson throws at me, any character direction, any plot thread - but if Luke does not bust out his green lightsaber and throw down, I won't be able to take it. I've been waiting 34 years to see it happen, dammit!

    "The new characters each get time to develop into full-fledged staples of this saga. Poe Dameron takes the biggest leap from what we saw in TFA, and his role something that has you questioning what we see in The Resistance."

    Hurray! Poe's my favorite but all the good stuff with him is in comics and books. I'm glad he's getting his moment to shine in the movies. :D

    Isn't it great being excited for STAR WARS again? I remember being in the theatre in 1983, and being surprised that lightsabers could be GREEN!
