Intense and disorienting are my first impressions.

The intense part comes from a tragic death almost from the very start and then the immediate jump into the politics of the New Empire and the rebellion against it.

The disorientation comes from seeing so many familiar elements--the aforementioned Star Destroyers, Darth Vader, and Luke Skywalker--turned on their heads (looking forward to see the green-skinned alien Han Solo and what he'll be like).

It's a fascinating read on its own, IMO, but I think the biggest thrill is seeing what original ideas and concepts were left relatively intact and which ones were totally altered or ditched altogether.
