I finished The Last Jedi novelization last night and I thought it was great. After being very disappointed with The Force Awakens novelization (which literally rushed the last 20 minutes of the movie into about 15 pages and just wasn't any good), LFL has bounced back strong with Alexander Freed's great Rogue One adaption and now Jason Fry's. I greatly enjoyed the multiple POVs and the new and deleted material. Fry did a good job explaining certain things from TLJ. The Leia/Chewie scene at the end was a first-rate, emotional scene. I also greatly appreciated getting the POV of the caretaker. He also did a much better job of working in the new EU material a lot better than Matt Stover did with his ROTS adaptation. I wish certain scenes had been longer (say Yoda's scene), didn't care for Rose's jealousy and I find Luke's post-ROTJ activities to be confusing but otherwise, this was a fantastic read. On the subject of the prequel novelizations, I always enjoyed Terry Brooks TPM one the best. It was a strong mix of characterization with new material. I thought RA Salvatore's AOTC novelization was lousy and while Stover's ROTS adaptation was better, I don't consider it the gold standard in Star Wars novelizations that a lot of people do. I think Stover drowned the book in continuity references to other SW works and I cannot look past or forgive spending the first 160 pages of that book on the first twenty minutes of Revenge of the Sith. I never understood that decision.
