Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Bomber Command Review
This book tells the story of Rose’s sister Paige, who died in the opening scene of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The story is told in a journal format, which includes photos, maps, drawings, clippings, blueprints and much more, all giving more background on the Resistance.
A major part of this journal is giving more information on Rose, including the relationship with Paige, their parents and family, their home planet and what the First Order did to them, to make them join the Resistance.
Compared to “Rose Tico – Resistance Fighter”, which is similar but is a journal from Rose’s view, this book helps flesh out Rose much better, it’s a shame they hadn’t introduced the sisters in The Force Awakens, so when Paige died, it would be more meaningful.
I liked the use of the journal format, it’s a easy format for younger Star Wars read and the fold out maps are a fun way of exploring the ships in more detail. Older fans probably won’t find the story goes deep enough, but for the target audience, it’s perfect.
Overall: This book really helped fill in the backstory of Rose and Paige, it contains lots of bonus information that I thought was interesting, but is very much for younger fans only.
Review Score: 6 out of 10
