Exciting story but had some technical issues
Compelling but has its flaws
I read the book before watching the movie (a rarity, I know).
I enjoyed this origin story of Han Solo. It also gives nods to story arcs established in the Legends novels (before Disney took over). That I appreciated.
Lafferty does an excellent job of pulling the reader into the action, but I found an overabundance of adverbs (disguising weak writing) in places a put-off. Some repetition of words was also jarring.
Some cameos near the end tied it to other Han Solo stories that I would like to see (at least in book form).
