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.
