The new novelization of The Force Awakens has just been released and will be priced around $28 for the Hardcover and $40 for the Audio CD. No news as to when the paperbacks will be released, but the hardcover novel will be 260 pages (an easy read even, for the hesitant). This does not, however, mean that the quality of the writing will be even remotely diminished.

The thing people have been talking about the most, is that this novelization is written by Alan Dean Foster; the very same man who ghost wrote the original novels for George Lucas. In fact, once Alan was revealed as the writer for the novels, much of the consequential “fame and fortune” headed his way as well.It wasn’t for no reason that Alan’s known for these books either. Whether you’re interested in owning a piece of history, or just want to see a new perspective on the events of the film, this new addition to the Star Wars canon should definitely be on your radar.
