Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he's trapped in a life of poverty and crime--and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang--reaching the distant stars seems impossible. When Han tries to escape with his girlfriend and partner-in-crime, Qi'ra, he makes it out--but she doesn't. Desperate for a way to find his own off-world vessel and free her, Han enlists in the Imperial Navy--the last place for a rebellious loner who doesn't play well with others. When the Empire clips his wings, Han goes rogue and plunges into the shady world of smugglers, gamblers, and con artists. There he meets the charming and cunning high roller Lando Calrissian, makes an unlikely friend in a cantankerous Wookiee called Chewbacca, and first lays eyes on the Millennium Falcon. To snag his piece of the outlaw pie, Han joins a crew of pirates to pull off a risky heist. The stakes are high, the danger is great, and the odds are slim. But never tell Han Solo the odds.

This film is kind of underrated. I think it's rather hasty to watch an imperfect film, and then immediately go to YouTube and proclaim to the world how terrible it is when the film was actually decent. Anyway, good book. Just read it.

I haven't seen the Solo movie before, so I realize that this novelization could be a little bit different from the movie especially since it's the expanded edition. In all though, I thought Solo was a good book. I liked the story and found all of the characters really enjoyable and interesting. I really liked that this book was really easy to read, and some parts made me laugh. I also thought it was cool that there were references to the Han Solo Trilogy by AC Crispin and The Lando Calrissian Adventures by Neil Smith. Because I haven't seen the movie before, some of the twists at the end actually came as a surprise to me, and that was also pretty cool. One thing that surprised me (but not in a good way), was the amount of swearing in this book. I've read Star Wars books that have had more, but Solo is a movie and this is a surprising amount of swearing for a Star Wars movie. (But this is assuming that Mur Lafferty didn't add any that weren't in the actual script or film).
Anyways, if you've watched and enjoyed the film, you'll probably like the novelization. After finishing this book, I definitely want to watch the movie now.
