"Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary" allows fans to study the characters, creatures, droids, props, and other elements of the film. Having owned and read all the previous Star Wars visual dictionaries, I was excited to get this. It's exactly the same as the others - each major character gets 2-4 pages, while minor characters and locations get 1-2 pages. Included in each profile is typically over a dozen images related to that character. For example, the pages on Rey include her outfit, speeder, survival satchel, blaster, staff, and more.

After seeing the film and looking through this book, it's clear just how much the movie got right visually. The First Order uniforms, TIE Fighters, and stormtroopers are all very reminiscent of the Empire from the original films, but with slight differences that also make them unique. The same could be said for the Resistance, which shares many visual elements with the original Rebellion. As far as completely new creations go, I think BB-8 stands out as the greatest new character from a design perspective. I also really like the look of Kylo Ren's mask as well as his lightsaber, which looks more fierce than any of the others.

The book will be great for kids, but also suitable for adults who want to delve into the visual aspects of the film. (However, if you're more interested in concept art, then the book to get is The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens). I love the layout of these books - the photos are scattered throughout the page; it's visually dense but never confusing. Brief paragraphs of text as well as captions provide context and insight into the characters and their props/wardrobe/etc.

I love these picture books, aka visual dictionary or encyclopedia. They give the film much more depth. Publisher DK is great at putting out such books and this one is no exception.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary is a 80-page hardcover book that covers the characters, set and props. While vehicles and spaceships are also included, you'll see them in more detail and huge in the other book Star Wars: The Force Awakens Incredible Cross-Sections.

The pictures are laid out like infographics. Each main subject has lots of labels and descriptions attached. Main characters are all in like Rey, Finn, BB-8, Poe, Kylo Ren, Stormtroopers, Flametroopers, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and many more. The noticeably missing ones would be (Oops, spoilers!) Luke Skywalker and Supreme Leader Snoke. If they are in the movie, I don't know why they aren't in the book, not even a mere mention or small coverage, since there's no mystery behind them anymore for fans who have watched the film.

But overall, it's a fantastic book. It's so detailed. Such as for Kylo Ren, it also includes the interrogation chair, interrogation tools, vader's mask, Kylo Ren's helmet, and a close up cross-section of Kylo's lightsaber. I've always thought the lightsabers were powered by lithium batteries? Kidding. But it does show all the mechanism that make the lightsaber work.

If you're a fan of Rey, then you'll probably enjoy peeking into her bag and check out her survival gear. There's also Finn as well as his other persona Fn-2187.

All the other crew like Resistance, pilots, Finalizer crew and other alien lifeforms are also provided with lots of interesting bits of information.

It's really worth the money for a book with so much details.
