Book Review: Aftermath (Star Wars: Aftermath, #1)

★☆☆☆☆ 1 / 5

This thing is barely worth the paper it’s printed on. It’s just dreg. Fan fiction material artificially promoted to official canon status.

The plot is thin, most characters (all except Sloane) are uninteresting, but what really kills the book is the author’s writing style. He tries to mimic the sort of hyperactive, overcharged narration style that you find in stuff like Fight Club or Snow Crash but it just doesn’t work. Every single chapter has at least one paragraph that makes you cringe.

You can find plenty of excerpts in other reviews but I’ll just say: avoid this book. it’s not worth your time.
