Secrets of the Force is everything the title promises it to be: a complete, uncensored, unauthorized oral history of Star Wars. Written by Edward Goss and Mark A. Altman, this is a novel full to the brim with Star Wars details and history.

This is a novel that delves into the making of the famous Star Wars films. It should go without saying, but if you don’t like the franchise – you won’t like this in-depth look at it. However, if you’re a megafan, I feel like you will appreciate many of the details that come up within these pages.

Then again, if you’re a megafan, you might already know a lot of what is going to be discussed here. There aren’t a lot of secrets in this book – just perspectives and facts. They’re still interesting, but it certainly evokes a different image.

As a fan of the franchise (one who has seen the movies/shows, read the books/comics, and collected lots of merch), I was blown away by how thorough Secrets of the Force ended up being. There is a lot of information to sift through here. Think about it – this book is nearly 600 pages long, and it is all about Star Wars. That’s a lot of information to include and even more to go through. It was such a delight to read! I can’t recommend this enough to fans of the Star Wars franchise, regardless of your experience level.

Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
