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...

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...

Shakespeare and Star Wars come together to wondrous results thanks to the fantastic writing and imagination of Ian Doescher. In 176 pages of iambic pentameter verse, stage directions, and some of the best Elizabethan clothed Star War characters ever seen, the reader finds one of the best adaptations...

As someone who has never been really into Star Wars this book was perfect. Light, quirky, yet true to its source, Doescher does a fantastic job of combining the works of The Bard and George Lucas into one unforgettable adaptation. Beyond just being a good book it's also a marvel at the talent it tak...

Star Wars meets Wiliam Shakespeare. Da ich mit den Star Wars Filmen aufgewachsen bin und ich die Idee dieses Buches so außergewöhnlich finde, musste ich dieses (doch eher lustige) "Drama" einfach lesen. Im Großen und Ganzen hat mir das Buch dann auch ganz gut gefallen, es wird nur weder dem Star War...

I just finished this book. It's an interesting concept. It was a little strange at first adjusting to the Shakespearean language, but I got used to it. It imagines that this play is being performed on the stage. There is a chorus to describe the action that would follow the transition scenes in the ...

That William Shakespeare sure wrote a lot of plays, eh? Unfortunately for us, he had to go and die some three hundred and fifty years before George Lucas created Star Wars – talk about your bad timing! Luckily, author Ian Doescher has studied the immortal work of the Bard and has rewritten the cla...
