I really enjoyed Rogue One and thought Alexander Freed did a good job at fleshing out the story and characters even more in this adaptation of the film. I think one of the reasons it took me so long to read this book was because I’ve seen the movie multiple times and since I already knew what was going to happen in the plot, I just wanted everything to progress faster, but since this was a novel that wasn’t the case.
That in no way means that this book is slow paced, it’s just a personal thing with me as a reader. So, I think that plus the “Supplemental Data” sections were what brought this book down for me. It’s still a well executed book that gives you great insight into the minds of these characters and explores their connections even more than they were in the film.
Overall, I did enjoy Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed and I’d give it .
I’d also recommend it to any Star Wars fan or any fan of the Rogue One film.
