—O knavery Most vile, O trick of Empire’s basest wit. A snare, a ruse, a ploy; and we the fools. What great deception hath been plied today— O rebels, do you hear? Fie, ‘tis a trap! ~Admiral Ackbar, Act IV, Scene 3 Yes, good Admiral, ‘tis a trap! I was lulled into a false sense of security by the...

Nay, nay! Try thou not. But do thou or do thou not, For there is no “try.” ~Yoda, Act III, Scene 7 Apparently I was not the only one put off by the excessive use of the Chorus in Verily, A New Hope. Enough people complained that Doescher mentioned it in the acknowledgments of this book and talke...

Friends, rebels, starfighters, lend me your ears. ~Luke Skywalker, Act V, Scene 4 My friends, I have made a tactical error. I should have read these books in the order in which they were written (4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3) instead of chronological order. If I had, I probably wouldn’t have noticed the huge...

After three books, I am still stunned by how much more sense the Star Wars prequels make as Shakespearean plays. I would pay real money to see this whole series of adaptations acted onstage by classically trained thespians. Get on it, Disney, and make it snappy. I want to see Patrick Stewart in the ...

I swear, these Shakespearean adaptations are ever so much better than the movies. I loved this one almost as much as Part the First, but I had to dock it half a star for Doescher violently shoehorning Samuel L. Jackson’s movie titles into Mace Windu’s dialog. This produce is pulp; fiction is your p...

I love Star Wars. I like Shakespeare. I have no idea why I didn’t start reading these books sooner. I almost docked it a half star because Doescher didn’t grant my secret wish and play on the whole “Jar Jar Binks was really a Sith Lord” theory, but the route he chose to take with my least favorite S...

The galaxy is on the brink of war as old and new heroes race to find the last Jedi against vile agents of the imperial First Order in William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken by Ian Doescher. The first film of the sequel trilogy returns us the Star Wars galaxy 30 years after the fall of the Empi...

The issue 21 was just fine, leading up to a fight for Deadpool's life. It was funny, it was right in line with everything Duggan's been doing up until now, and I was disappointed it ended so quickly given how long this issue was. The problem is that three fourths of this was a Shakespeare/Deadp...

The biggest issue is that I have to read this a short piece at a time. Still, I finally got through and I enjoyed it. For the most part. I think I need to love either Shakespeare or Star Wars a lot more for this to work for me. Also, the use of Star Wars and until the Empire Strikes Back mad...

I loved this! Take Star Wars, Episode 4, A New Hope. Add William Shakespeare's writing and dialog. And you get A ROLLICKING GOOD TIME!!!! I haven't had so much fun with a book as I have this one. It is so funny picturing Han Solo speaking a soliloquy. I would love to see this produced for the theate...
