Chris Miller's Analysis Of The Force Awakens series
Chris Miller (AKA Darth Hound) is several features into an insightful series on The Force Awakens and its characters on The Star Wars Report.
According to the Visual Dictionary and the novelization, Snoke sees Kylo as the perfect embodiment of the Force, having familial connections with both the dark side and the light. This could be a clue that the Force philosophy they follow is not that of the Sith, but something newer, or older.
Chris has penned his thoughts and observations about TFA characters primary and secondary including Maz Kanata, General Hux, Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, Poe, Leia, Snoke, Lor San Tekka, the droids, and Chewbacca. If you are interested in expanded knowledge of the film and its cast but don't have time for the books, Chris' writing would be a valuable asset to you.
