Hmm... Honestly, this just seemed really the strange. The 'Jedi' lessons at the end of each chapter were bizarre. The writing too. Other than choose your own adventure books, this is the only book I've read set in second person. Personally, I do not identify with Luke Skywalker at all, so Luke being addressed as "you" was a little strange. The verb tense at other points, like with Han and Leia, was also a bit unusual. For example:
"Suddenly she's kissing him, then whispering in his ear" Instead of the
"She kisses him and whispers in his ear" you would usually see in a present tense book. The story and dialogue varies from the movie, but from the point of view it's not terrible. A complaint, though, the author skips over Han and Leia's fight and just about every other interaction they have, which is described as "Mushy Stuff". Despite all the critiques I have, it wasn't actually that bad.
