Han Solo’s Thoughts During THAT Moment On The Bridge

Plus Snoke’s Opinion of Solo…

The following are noteworthy quotes from Alan Dean Foster’s novelization of The Force Awakens

Rey brought the snow speeder to a stop beside a small black structure. To Finn it looked unimpressive. But then, he reminded himself, remove a trigger from a gun and while the trigger itself would look decidedly unimportant, its absence would render the gun useless. After opening a maintenance panel, Rey scrutinized the interior briefly before setting to work. One part after another was disconnected by her deft fingers. “Nice piece of instrumentation,” she commented absently. “I would have got at least three portions for this.”

That final line spoken by Rey would have been a great call back to her life on Jakku in the movie. And this one is good.

Ren’s eyes blazed. “No! The Supreme Leader is wise. He knows me for who I am, and who I can become. He knows you for what you really are, Han Solo. Not a general, not a hero. Just a small-time thief and smuggler.” A trace of a grin flashed across Han’s face. “Well, he’s got that part right.”

In some cases the quality of novelizations exceed that of the film itself but in the best cases they complement each other. I believe the latter is the case with Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. I’ll be posting more from each of these novels soon….
