MOBI ↠ ✓ Chuck Wendig New York Times Bestseller • Journey to Star Wars The Force Awakens “ Star Wars Aftermath reveals what happened after the events of 1983’s Return of the Jedi It turns out there’s than just the Empire for the good guys to worry about” The Hollywood ReporterAs the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor the Rebel Alliance now a fledgling New Republic presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy’s scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate But above the remote planet Akiva an ominous show of the enemy? The TIE wibbles and wobbles through the air careening drunkenly across the Myrrann rooftops it zigzags herkily jerkily out of sightAnd that was the moment when my eyes started bleeding This was when I realized the Disney canon is absolute garbageNumerous other reviewers have noted the poor writing style of Chuck Wendig Those other reviewers are correct This book is horribly written with a jarring present tense narrative The characters are dull and formulaic the tech genius teenager and his estranged mother the regretful drunken ex Imperial the hard as nails bounty hunter As I read I found myself not caring what happened to any of them Whether they lived or died made no difference to me and that's a bad signThe descriptions of the environment and the action reminded me of the narrative of a game master describing something to his players in a role playing game It's a spare severe room red walls lined with manacles In the middle a desk whose surface is made from some Sullustian frozen in corbonite On that desk is a blaster a collection of uills in a cup a bottle of ink The room features only one other piece of furniture a tall black cabinet sealed tight with a maglock p 142 I half expected Wendig to add So what do your characters do? Roll a perception checkWhat really depressed me about the whole mess was that there were moments I enjoyed moments I wanted to see of only for the book to go back to the boring main story line about the cliched band of motley rebels coming together reluctantly to stop the Empire The interludes which had nothing to do with the main plot showed the effect of the Empire's fall on planets across the galaxy While they weren't written any better than the rest of the book they showed the reactions of people to the collapse of Imperial rule A family dinner gone awry as siblings argue Bounty hunters realizing they may not have much of a future Politicians arguing the course of the future government I found myself wanting them to continue to see what might happen only for the chapter to end and the interlude characters never to be mentioned againThe only other exception was Admiral Rae Sloane first introduced in A New Dawn I wanted to see of her an intelligent reasonable but loyal Imperial who wasn't a stock character like the others I'd like to see a novel about her something written from the Imperial side as things fall apartThis is not a good start to Disney's new Star Wars post RotJ universe The company needs to hire a new writer who will write stories about characters and events that people actually care about One with writing talent would be preferred
