It is wicked hard to decently novelize a film, especially one as well known and often watched as this; I couldn't escape the fact that each character was saying the lines in my head as I read them, and there were a couple of places where the lines were changed and I felt rather cheated. Much as I love the EU, I think the films are best left to themselves, although it is nice to get all of the character personality that you can't get in pure-dialogue film--the best example of this is the constant interpretation of the droids' movements and noises.
And I will never stop being annoyed that the EU has decided to spell out R2-D2 and C3PO. But that's a me thing.
