Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Finn’s Story Book Review
“Finn’s Story” is exactly what you think it is.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Finn’s Story” (which was written for a young audience) isn’t the type of book I would normally cover, but hey, I review what I get. At any rate, the book is a condensed version of ‘The Force Awakens’ as told through the eyes of FN-2187 (later named Finn by Poe Dameron). The story follows the conflicted Finn who deserts the First Order, joins up with Rey, gets caught up with the Resistance, you know the rest if you’ve seen the film. The story (which is written by Jesse J. Holland and based off of Lawrence Kasdan, J.J. Abrams, and Michael Arndt’s screenplay) is accompanied by beautiful photo realistic art by Brian Rood.
If you’ve seen “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (who hasn’t at this point?), there isn’t much in the way of surprises with “Finn’s Story.” It tells the story of TFA from start to beginning from the POV of Finn. There is some additional content which is easily the most interesting part of the book. Chapter 1 contains Pre-TFA material involving FN-2187 as a stormtrooper and his interactions with other troopers (including Nines). It’s very brief, but it does give readers some more scenes with the character before he leaves his post for good. The book also gives insight into Finn’s mindset during moments of the film although most of it is pretty obvious from the movie itself.
Overall Thoughts: “Finn’s Story” is strictly for children who love “Star Wars” and Finn. No more, no less.
