Just go watch the movie.

The Force Awakens (Star Wars) - Alan Dean Foster

This book was such a huge disappointment -- just go see the movie. The writing was hit-or-miss; some parts were good others were just awful -- the action scenes were the worse. The dialogue that hadn't been lifted directly from the film or had been altered was just awful. I never once felt like I was reading about the same characters I had seen in theaters -- the characterization was just off. The ending was extremely rushed, with hardly any time spent on the final lightsaber battle. I was going to give this book three stars originally because Star Wars, but honestly it didn't deserve it.
