I can describe William Shakespeare’s Star Wars in one word – Hilarious!The first thing I did when I opened this book was to scan through the pages looking for the famous lines. You know, like “These are not the droids you’re looking for,” “That’s no moon, it’s a space station,” and of course “May ...

This was an interesting read. After reading a couple of years back the Star Wars - New Hope's novel that began it all and I thought that it had some interesting new things. As most tie-ins that are a prose version of the script that one gave some scenes that never went to the screen. Comparing it to...

When I first heard about the book, "Pride, Prejudice and Zombies", I was quietly excited. Despite my usual reading habits, Pride & Prejudice was a book I very much enjoyed, with wonderfully detailed characters set in an interesting time-period. The idea of placing this story amidst a zombie apocaly...

This was so well done! Funny, creative, dramatic, and the dialog was much better than Lucas's! I highly suggest listening to this on audiobook. The voice actors' impersonations of the characters that we know and love from the movie(s) are not to be missed, and I thorougly enjoyed R2-D2's lines! ...
