Written by George Lucas, the producer and writer of the STAR WARS trilogy, STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE tells the story of Luke Skywalker. Luke lives and works on his father's farm on the remote planet of Tatooine. Bored beyond belief, he yearns for adventures out among the stars, adventures that would take him beyond the farthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds. But Luke gets more than he bargains for when he intercepts a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke doesn't know who she is, but he knows he has to save her - and soon, because time is running out. Armed only with courage and the lightsaber that was his father's, Luke is catapulted into the middle of the most savage space war ever... and heads straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star...… (lisätietoja)

It’s been a long time since I read a proper Star Wars novel, and even longer since I read the original film novelizations, so even though I’m extremely familiar with the story it felt a bit like reading a whole new story. I was surprised that George Lucas actually wrote the novelization of the first Star Wars film, but considering that before the film was taken up by audiences around the world he was just a young filmmaker without a huge fan following and people to do some of the heavy lifting for him in terms of marketing. Lucas’ passion for his space opera story and his creativity is evident throughout the novel, even with his lack of professional writing credentials, so while we may be a bit underwhelmed by the choppy storytelling we are swept away by the story itself. What stood out to me most about the novelization is that while the surface action remains decidedly true to the finished film, we get a lot more character development from two of the minor characters who seem to play largely stationary roles - droids R2D2 and C3PO. They are the first major characters introduced in the book, and Lucas reveals many of their thoughts throughout the story, further acting to humanize the otherwise metallic robots and cementing them are far more than supporting characters alongside their human counterparts. Lucas also extrapolates on the galaxy that he has created, exploring the nature of Jawas, the Sandpeople, the Empire’s government officials, and the mysterious Force which act as the supporting backdrop to the fight between the Empire and the Rebellion which drives the plot of the film. These details are largely left out of the film to focus on the action and narration (and for practical reasons based on the narrative differences between film and books), but as a filmmaker trying to sell a pretty out there story Lucas is carefully building the realism that grounds his story. After this initial novel Lucas leaves the writing to established authors, but it was a bit of a treat to see his initial voice put to the page in comparison to the screen. ( )

Continuing our way through Star Wars novelizations, my daughter and I read this very first piece of "Expanded Universe" media. Like other novelizations, the book contains scenes that were deleted or didn't even make it to filming. Also, Greedo shot first and somehow that was never edited otherwise. I find it interesting that with the larger mythos of Star Wars being created that Foster hints at story threads that wouldn't be followed-up or would end up very different once the sequels and prequels were rolled out. He also tends to use analogies to things on Earth more than later Star Wars writers would do. A significant downside is that Foster's descriptions of Jawa's use horribly prejudicial terms.

Favorite Passages:
“Remember, Luke, the suffering of one man is the suffering of all. Distances are irrelevant to injustice. If not stopped soon enough, evil eventually reaches out to engulf all men, whether they have opposed it or ignored it.” ( )

It's a good, solid take on this classic action adventure movie. At the time it was written, no one (especially the film makers) had any idea that it would become a cultural phenomenon. But it did, and owning the original book from back in the day brings some interesting tidbits to life. Besides the fact that Han shot first.

The movie was such a visual experience that the descriptions in the book seem a bit klunky. But it is also interesting to read how Lucas (and probably the late Gary Kurtz) had to put words to things that they saw in their heads. And there are also scenes in the book that didn't make it into the movie; place descriptions are also a good, fill-in backstory. ( )

Writing: 4.0; good writing that captures a sci-fi feel, but it doesn't feel quite Star Wars.
Theme: 5.0; the classic story of Luke Skywalker, a farmboy from Tatooine, who enlists his services in the Rebel Alliance along with the old Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca, droids C-3PO and R2-D2, and Princess Leia Organa as they battle the Galactic Empire, led by the ruthless Darth Vader.
Content: 4.5; the usual sci-fi violence expected in Star Wars, albeit a bit more graphic in description than depiction, nothing overtly grotesque though.
Language: 4.0; eight uses of vulgarity in this volume (mostly "d-mn" and "h-ll").

The novelization of the original Star Wars film, the self-titled book (subtitled From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker) follows the titular young hero, Luke Skywalker, as he envisions a future as a skilled star pilot, much like his deceased father. When tragedy strikes after two rebel droids, C-3PO and R2-D2, arrive at Luke's home, he seeks out the ancient Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, who prods Luke into taking up the mantle of a Jedi. Luke, Obi-Wan, and the droids join forces with smuggler Han Solo and his sidekick Chewbacca as they seek to rescue Princess Leia Organa, who has been captured by the Galactic Empire and the villainous Darth Vader. The story here is the classic tale pretty much every fan of Star Wars should know: the origin of the great Jedi as he meets the other characters that populate the original trilogy of films. There's no faults with the story, as it is the exact same as that of the movie; as a matter of fact, my only real problems come with the writing and world-building. While there are more aspects of the story offered up in this adaptation, such as more interactions between Luke and his friends on Tatooine (many of which may be seen as deleted scenes), there are quite a few parts of the novel that feel out of place, as if they don't quite belong in Star Wars. For example, animals like pandas, dogs, and baboons are mentioned, despite being seen nowhere else in Star Wars, at least by such names. The whole world-building side of the book feels a lot more generic than the true film. Not that Alan Dean Foster (who ghostwrote this book for George Lucas) did a poor job, but the writing and world of the novel itself felt a lot like a lower-budget sci-fi story and not the first chapter of perhaps the greatest sci-fi franchise ever. Overall, it is a good novel that does work well as a book and adaptation of the story, being both faithful while also adding newer aspects. As I mentioned, there are still parts that feel "cheaper" than the actual film, but it is still a fun and quick read. Recommended for fans seeking to digest every ounce of Star Wars out there and those who have interest in the classic story, but there isn't too much new content, and it does, as I said, feel a bit weaker than its film counterpart. ***Finished March 15, 2020*** ( )

Some background, I never seen the Star War movies but I've heard tidbits over the years on what they were about and some of the big things that happen in them as well about characters. With that in mind I thought I would read the original trilogy before watching the movies, especially when I saw Barnes & Noble's leather-bound version. I was surprised how short each story was, but especially A New Hope. How is this a movie that started a cult following a huge fandom? This should be like a 30 minute episode of some tv show. It moves at a snails pace yet things are happening that start off this huge battle and Luke gets pulled in by fucking chance. Out of the three I read I disliked A New Hope the most. I'm glad I read it though to get into the other 2 but wow was it painful to get through. Not enough detail, too coincidental. ( )

Despite some continuity errors with later material, Foster's novelization expands the early Star Wars universe and provides some interesting details left out of the movie.
