Written by George Lucas, the producer and writer of the STAR WARS trilogy, STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE tells the story of Luke Skywalker. Luke lives and works on his father's farm on the remote planet of Tatooine. Bored beyond belief, he yearns for adventures out among the stars, adventures that would take him beyond the farthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds. But Luke gets more than he bargains for when he intercepts a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke doesn't know who she is, but he knows he has to save her - and soon, because time is running out.

3.0 Star Wars (Star Wars Novelizations #4)
There really wasn't much to this book...as it pretty much followed the movie. We maybe get a few new insights, but nothing major. In fact, I felt that it didn't do some characters justice at all! It really felt like it was just a slightly fleshed out version of the script. That being said, it wa...

4.0 Alas, Tarkin, We Hardly Knew Ye...
First published in 1976, and later popularized in a movie franchise, THIS is the book which introduced the worlds' science fiction fans to the character of Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, a "can-do" upper-management go-getter for the ages! Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin (played brilliantly by Peter Cus...

4.0 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
I thought this was a good book adaptation of a movie (a lot of them are dodgy). I believe that Alan Dean Foster contributed to it??? (not 100% sure, though). It certainly doesn't seem George Lucas' style of writing, but I guess it could be. Whatever the case, it is well written and I have read it ma...
