Enjoyed this one quite a bit. I've never really seen a mashup of both sci-fi and fantasy elements like this before, at least not this well done.

Star Wars books are a guilty pleasure I guess. While many would not consider them science fiction and rather something more like a fantasy, I consider them science fiction.
I have seen the movie many times of course but I had always heard that the novelization of the movie was pretty good and considered one of the best of all the Star Wars novelizations. So, I decided to give it a try.
I found that I enjoyed it quite a bit. The books follows the movie of course. Events and scenes in the movie are in the book. Dialog as well is pretty much faithfully the same in the book. But what sets it apart and indeed what sets most novels apart from later movies make from the books is the additional detail and most of the inner dialog and thoughts that flow through a character's mind.
It is these inner dialogs and thoughts that provide a more colorful picture of what goes on in the movie. Most of this is conveyed in the movie but sometimes is awkward or incomplete rendering the scene either less impactful at the least or unintentionally funny or seen as a plot hole.
A good example is Ender's Game. The book is much better than the movie that was made because much of what make's Ender special is his thinking and motivations behind what he does that are conveyed in a single line of dialog in the movie.
Palpatine, Anikan and Kenobi all benefit from having their characters and interactions broadened and fleshed out more within the book.
If you are a Star Wars fan then you can't do wrong by reading this book.
