Just an FYI: Random House has a preview of The Last Jedi on their site that reveals MAJOR SPOILERS. Don't read the preview if you don't want the surprises ruined for you.

Major spoilers for what? It's talking about stuff that happened in Book 3.

If you start going through it, it skips ahead to later chapters.

This excerpt? It's only some of Chapter 1.

When I open it it's 44 pages of the first page of every Part and chapter. You'll notice that page 15's last sentence doesn't end, but 16 begins a brand new sentence.

There are two excerpts there. One is the chapter one excerpt printed lower on the page, the other is the book previewer app that launches when you click on the cover. The app previewer is the one that reveals major spoilers.

What did Maya Kaathyrn Bohnhoff say about droid rights? http://www.eucantina.net/archives/15743

I'd like to see I-Five start a droid revolution. Some droid-centric books would be cool to read. Of all the elements in Star Wars, that's one that hasn't really been tapped into as far as books go. Every now and then a book explores droids via side plots, but never as the main plot.

The last attempted droid evolution was IG-88 in a Tales Of book. I, honestly, don't see it ever happening, though. No one wants to talk about the awkward relationship between owners and their human-like droids, because it, in a moralistic way, turns our heroes into villains. Regardless, I like the idea of more droid-centric novels. I'd love to see the world from Artoo's view.

So I finally got around to reading this book and finished it yesterday. Overall, I found it quite average and not all that exciting, which was pretty much my opinion of the Coruscant Nights trilogy.

I would recommend (re)reading the Coruscant Nights trilogy before reading The Last Jedi - there are a lot of references to those books, and characters just show up without introduction. This may be marketed as a standalone, but it is definitely a sequel to Coruscant Nights.

Started this again recently and once I passed chapters 3 and 4 I was hooked. I'm not the biggest fan of the CN trilogy but this seems different to me. Really liking it.

Well finished this. The early parts were definitely more surprising than the end.
