Aftermath: Star Wars by Chuck Wendig Book Summary

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 more than just the Empire for the good guys to worry about.”—The Hollywood Reporter
As 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’s strength is unfolding. Out on a lone reconnaissance mission, pilot Wedge Antilles watches Imperial Star Destroyers gather like birds of prey circling for a kill, but he’s taken captive before he can report back to the New Republic leaders.
Meanwhile, on the planet’s surface, former rebel fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her native world—war weary, ready to reunite with her estranged son, and eager to build a new life in some distant place. But when Norra intercepts Wedge Antilles’s urgent distress call, she realizes her time as a freedom fighter is not yet over. What she doesn’t know is just how close the enemy is—or how decisive and dangerous her new mission will be.
Determined to preserve the Empire’s power, the surviving Imperial elite are converging on Akiva for a top-secret emergency summit—to consolidate their forces and rally for a counterstrike. But they haven’t reckoned on Norra and her newfound allies—her technical-genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and a reprobate Imperial defector—who are prepared to do whatever they must to end the Empire’s oppressive reign once and for all.

Praise for Aftermath
“The Force is strong with Star Wars: Aftermath.”—Alternative Nation
“The Star Wars universe is fresh and new again, and just as rich and mysterious as it always was.”—Den of Geek

“[Chuck] Wendig neatly captures the current states of the Empire and Rebel Alliance and does so through flawed, real, and nuanced characters. His writing gets you up close and personal. . . . Wendig does wonders with dialogue and voice and carving out space for everyone to breathe. Aftermath is a strong foot forward into unexplored territory and puts down just enough foundation that you can start picturing the Resistance and First Order of The Force Awakens taking shape.”—Nerdist
“If the opening chapter of the Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy is any indication, the ‘Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will be every bit as exciting as the movie.”—New York Daily News
“A wonderful Star Wars adventure by a gifted author.”—SF Book Reviews

Aftermath: Star Wars (Chuck Wendig) Book Reviews

Borfest: horribly written. You'll find more action watching paint dry.I'm 42 and I've seen and read plenty of Star Wars in my time. Aftermath is SO PG, not even PG-13. This had nothing to do with Star Wars... It was hard to read. As in I wanted so much to like it there was just no punch or character to like. The writer takes any reference to Star Wars characters or places adds a "like a" in front of it and slaps it on the page. Like a sarlac pit on steroids it splits out an old friend (I guess you'll have to read this garbage so I'm not spoiling it for you). There's 8 pages that it's guaranteed you'll like about the fastest ship in the galaxy and her crew but that's it. The only pages that Wowed me and the reason I read it cover to cover. Please cut this writer loose and start over again. Awful, boring as watching paint dry..Score: 1/5

Bits of good story but most should've been cutYou know how the new Hobbit movies took a short book and streeeeeeeetched it out to 3 overly long movies? This feels kinda like that. The main story is sort of interesting in that you get a sense for what's happening in the universe after the fall of the Empire but honestly that could've been done in a much shorter manner. There's a brief glimpse of Han & Chewie who seem to be off on a VERY interesting adventure but their story is pretty much just that: they're headed off and that's all we know. A few other well known characters gets mention but only in passing. There's a mystery character mentioned near the end who sounds interesting but again, those pieces are so brief all we're left with is wondering. I get that this book is supposed to setup more stories and the movie but the book could be about 50 pages and you'd get all the info you need. Stylistically, as one other reviewer pointed out, there are a BUNCH of similes throughout this book. It became a crutch and I started paying more attention to the style than the story. I gave it 3 stars because despite all the flaws it's still an interesting story. It doesn't feel like it was all necessary or like I have any insight into coming events in the movie but if you approach it as a story in the expanded universe of Star Wars it's decent enough..Score: 3/5

Mixed bag of sci-fi..I just finished reading this book. Before I did I saw all of previous movies again and even though I wanted to wait till I was done with the book, I also saw the force awakens over the weekend. My main problem with this story is how it's advertised... I was expecting a story connecting ep VI and VIII, but that is just not the case. There are maybe one or two names I recognize from movies and mostly put as random, serving no purpose interludes... Story is fun enough and it keeps you engaged, but if you expected to learn something new that could either prepare or spoil for you what's coming, then you don't have to worry. There is little to no connection with movies outside of major events. Writing left a lot to be desired as well. Especially at the beginning of the book, I felt like I was reading it wrong, for lack of better explanation... It gets better though and again, story is engaging enough to keep you going till the end. To sum up, solid sci-if book, falsely advertised as having something to do with actual Star Wars saga, which sometimes makes little sense, but comes nicely together as a whole. If there is another one and I've heard there would be three I sure hope next one is a vast improvement....Score: 3/5

Did a 7th grade student write this?I read the reviews. They were not kind. Kept talking about how bad the writing was. "yeah- but it can't be THAT bad" I told myself. I was wrong. So very wrong. Chuck's writing style could best be compared to teenage poetry: full of self importance and desperately trying to be deep and meaningful. But at the end of the day, it's just terrible writing. On every level, it's awful. Characters so completely lacking in depth that we don't care about them at all. Like, not even a little bit. An overly complicated plot (which is pretty stupid to begin with) that just keeps going on and on ad nauseam. Terrible jokes that continually miss the mark and fall flat. I am astounded that Disney/Lucasfilm, with all of their money, couldn't get a half-way decent writer to pen this book. Is Chuck related to one of the higher-ups? Is that how he landed this gig? Because its certainly not because of his writing "talent"... Let me sum it up this way: this book makes the Star Wars Prequels look like The Godfather..Score: 1/5

This is the Jar-Jar Binks of Star Wars books.This book was a great opportunity that fell flat on it's face. It reads like teenage fan fiction written for other teens. It's characters and character driven sub-stories are melodramatic, tedious, and cliche. This is the Jar-Jar Binks of Star Wars books. I'm not sure what feeling overwhelmed me more, the feeling of embarrassment that the author should have been enduring when he was churning this out, or my own feeling of it as I kept reading. By the time you're 200 pages into the book, you're still not certain which characters you care about, or why you should, even though you're trying so hard. Fortunately there are interludes, which are a nice break from an otherwise unyielding onslaught of words feverishly trying to score a hit with Star Wars fans, even going so far as to cough up a few familiar lines from the movies and highly recognizable references. "Bantha's? Oh, okay, this IS a Star Wars book. Yeah I know what bantha's are, I can relate to this story now." It's like the author is blind-folded in a dark room, and some where in the room is a piñata full of GOOD Star Wars writing. And instead of getting some Zahn level story, we get the painful scene of someone flailing around wildly, desperately trying to hit that piñata, for several hundred pages, but instead striking out miserably. I would say something about sending the author a bag of lemons, but he's got it hard enough - his name is attached to this book..Score: 1/5

ConfusingThis is a very difficult book to follow. I've been an avid Star Wars fan my whole life, and couldn't wait for this novel with the upcoming episode 7. It was a huge disappointment. The entire book is based on characters that you have never heard of, and don't really care about. The story is very jumpy, and doesn't follow any particular logical plot line. If this wasn't a Star Wars book, it would not have been finished. Almost wasn't anyway. In a way, this feels like the author is trying to purposely distance himself from the story we all know, so to try and be picked up for a spin off movie..Score: 1/5

A good read, despite it not being what I wanted it to be.This story might not have been the story I wanted for the first book post-RotJ, but it is a pretty good read, and the events contained within are exactly what would realistically happen in the months after the Battle of Endor. Spoilers ahead... I really wish the big three had been the focus of this story, but since they weren't, the characters we got were an interesting second-place. I absolutely loved that Admiral Sloane was a main character. I really hope we continue to see more of her, not just in the next to Aftermath novels and the upcoming short story, but for years to come. The other character that was a really cool standout was Mr. Bones. I look forward to seeing him in the next novel as well. All the little teases in the interludes were the best parts of the story however. I would have loved to read a Han and Chewie novel which continued on from their interlude as the first chapter. The Boba Fett interlude was awesome. I almost believed that we were seeing the return of Boba Fett himself in this very novel, but as it turned out, I still believe what we saw will play a part in his "return" in the future. Besides these two standout interludes, there was the perfect amount of other character and location mentions, from Sugi to Fulcrum to Dengar to Jakku, it was great to see and hear little glimpses of characters we know and love. The glimpses of were the story is going were very intriguing, from the implication that there is something out there in Wild Space which the Emporer had his eye on (which reminded me of the Vong), to the proposal that the Imperial Remnant should retreat, gain strength, and come back at the right moment. I think these two bits of info will be very important going foward towards The Force Awakens. And the mystery of the Admiral pulling all the strings with the Empire's plans left me very eager to read the next in the Aftermath series. I'd give this novel an 8 out of 10..Score: 4/5

Hard to readEverything. In short bursts. Makes it hard to read. Frustrating. Rigid. The style the author was going for aside this book was very disappointing. It makes me slightly hesitant for his next book "Life Dept". The book itself is very hard to read. The short bursts while descriptive makes the flow of the book very jumbled and to be quite frank noisy. The story itself held a few interesting moments but not enough to swallow it as a whole and it really seemed rushed. I do not regret reading this but I really should have just picked it up at a bargain price later. I would not have missed out on anything super important..Score: 2/5

Worst author I've read for Star WarsGiven how many writers there have been for Star Wars there are going to be different styles and skill levels. This particular one was the worst I've read. This is the first book I could not stand to read. No matter how bad the flow and style of the writing I have always finished the book. I cannot make it out of the first chapter, because, the story is lost in the words. Don't buy, it's not worth the money. Wait for half priced books if you must. I would like to give it a 1 but since I didn't read it I can't. I would like to give the author the benefit of the doubt that there is a good story in there, but honestly I'm rereading other books right now over this. If that tells how bad it is..Score: 2/5

Compelling, but interludes break up the story.As others have mentioned, this book is filled with “interludes” that give insight into various parts of the Star Wars universe during this post Empire time. Some of them seem totally out of place and they interrupt intense moments of the main plot, but others do fit in neatly to other parts of the canon Star Wars story. (For example, one of the interludes neatly prefaces the second season of The Mandalorian on Disney+, others may fit into stories that have not yet been debuted in books / shows / movies).Score: 4/5

LGBT Characters in Disney owned Star WarsI have read every Star Wars Expanded Universe novel, almost all of the comics, and as much reference material as I could get my hands on. I have been a fan of SW for as long as I can remember. "Aftermath" truly heralds the beginning of the new and improved EU. I had quite a lot of difficulty with Wendig's style and his constant changing of tenses within passages of the narrative. That didn't really affect my ability to enjoy the story overall. I have seen a lot of negative reviews on this book and have to say that most of those were much too harsh. I want to point out the thing that got me to give this book such a high rating. It's something that will make many people (if they read this review) not read this book and maybe many more in the future. I rate this book as high as I did because it had several LGBT characters. Sure, when I say several I mean three, but in Star Wars (currently owned by Disney) that is HUGE! These characters were not throw away characters (within the confines of this story). One of the main cast is revealed to be queer, while the sister of another main character is a happily married lesbian that features frequently. Wendig may have mucked this book up a bit, but having more LGBT representation in A Galaxy Far, Far Away really makes me hopefully for the future of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. I think the presence of the Lucasfilm story group made this book difficult for Wendig to write. I am sure there had to be numerous rewrites due to the ever-changing restrictions and limitations on what Wendig could include or set up within this first book. Wendig had to set up a lot of the future of Star Wars while keeping the story contained to mostly a single planet. Wendig did use interludes really well in this book to give readers a glimpse of what was happening on many other planets across the Galaxy Far, Far Away. Many of those moments were quite moving..Score: 4/5

The treatment of well established characters and plots that were simply thrown away with this book was disappointing. The introduction of new imperial characters that we meant to be ground breaking were weak and underwhelming. Previous characters (Admiral Dala example) fit better and had more intriguing back stories. The new Rebellion characters have some merit, but really fell short of inspiring interest. Overall it's not a great start to the rewriting of the EU. There were plenty of usable stories, characters, plots, and book series that could still be kept and line up with Episode 7.

Wendig even did as much on his personal blog, with a wrath-filled post that should have every Star Wars fan and Disney exec wondering if Wendig truly "gets" the saga and what it means.

Best of the New CanonThis is the best of the new canon novels in my opinion. As someone who read the majority of the post Return of the Jedi EU, initially wasn't too excited about the new films in the saga, I was surprised I am so on board with what this novel represents. While some might find specific inconsistencies with the previous Legends material, I think generally speaking Aftermath continues many of the themes and ideas that the early Expanded Universe covered. The major difference I am seeing so far is that Wendig provides a portrayal of a crumbling Empire and a rising New Republic that is more convincing, realistic, and thought provoking than any of the previous material. Initially I was discouraged by all the complaints about the present tense writing style. After getting into the book, and having an open mind, I grew to enjoy the writing style. It was very cleaver in some cases, and allowed for great character development, I especially like how Sinjir is portrayed. The main plot thread was interesting enough. I was pretty engaged in the beginning, but I didn't feel it carried its momentum to the end. This was my only complaint with the book. The main story is interrupted by various interludes, which show how the rest of the galaxy is dealing with the fallout from the Battle of Endor. The interludes became the best part of the book and give clues to how the various factions may evolve into what we have seen so far from The Force Awakens..Score: 4/5

Interesting Story. Poorly Written.With the release of The Force Awakens, I, like many Star Wars fans was excited but also a little sad that nearly the entire EU was being thrown out. Having seen Ep VII now and read the novelization, I was keen to find something to bridge the new gap between Episodes VI and VII. I was also interested in learning more about Resistance fighter pilot Snap Wexley. Aftermath disappoints. Wendig's tone and diction does not match the Star Wars universe. He tries to do too much in too little space and the reader is left frustrated. The "interludes," while interesting to a degree, should have been edited out and published as a collection of short stories. Aftermath just doesn't feel like Star Wars and it was painful to read at times. I, like many I'm sure, muddled through to get the key plot points of the new canon. Wendig is no James Luceno (who's Tarkin is well worth the read). Do yourself a favour and read the Wookiepedia articles on Snap Wexley and Rae Sloane instead of reading this book.
