solid story

as a massive Star Wars fan who knows the timelines, this story is a bit disappointing..
but.. as a new franchise it is a solid story and the book explains far better than the movie.

A less than stellar mix

I wasn't a big fan of the story of the motion picture of The Last Jedi, so there was no doubt I wouldn't like the story of the book. It is also inevitable that the two are to be compared. There are many scenes in this book that are not in the theatrical edit of the movie. That scenes go a long way towards improving the more questionable parts of the movie, I found these parts to be the most enjoyable. Especially the first chapter, which is a dream Luke has - this was for me, by far the best chapter in the book.

The writing I found to be rather bland. I can't count the about of times I heard the word "ebb", and conversations often literally devolved into "he said", "she said" - rather than finding more dynamic ways to concetly to the reader who is speaking a particular sentence. When large portions of the book are dialogue, this can be rather difficult to get through.

The voice actor however, was fantastic. His narrator voice seemed spot on all of the time, and all of the characters from the movie sounded almost identical to the actual people. Especially Luke, Poe and Finn. His Luke impression was flawless.

So this is a tough one for me. I strongly disliked the story in general, and the book can't be blamed for that. I think the new scenes and the extra "in universe" facts that Canon books bring to the table definitely made this book worth the buy.

Loved it, well read and good sound effects

obviously not everyone is a Star Wars fan but having listened to Star Wars audiobooks for well over 10 years, I would rate this amongst the top 5. I loved the story and thought it was well read and had great sound effects.

loved it

If u think characters should get old and change due to life experiences like everyone else?This is for u. If your lookin for a comic book, one dimensional hero who never gets old or fucks up (or slips!lol) then skywalker in last jedi ain't for you.

Great addition to the film

Really well good audiobook. All the character voices were spot on, except Snoke is a bit deeper than the film. Great job.

More complete than the movie.

Improves on the story in the movie

Great narration.

Do wish they’d drop some of the sound effects library, footsteps not required !!

Great story, well read with awful sound effects

The story is well written and well read but the sound effects are annoying at best and at times they get in the way of the reader's ability to hear the story at all. Frankly, the soundeffects ruin what would otherwise be a great book.

Wow. So dull.

Bought this as reviews suggested it might fix or mitigate some of the films story failings. Instead it drew it out in the most pondrous over elaborated manner. Nearly two hours in we were getting to the end of the bombing run on the bigger-same-as ship. The narration is very good. The character voices excellent. if you loved the film (really?) you'll probably love this. If you saw a wide universe generally wasted this is that but much slower, longer, tedious.

Basically? Ugh.
