    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

    This Shakespearean adaptation is a really fun take on Star Wars. Like most of Shakespeare's work, I find it much easier to listen to this book than to read it. At first I thought that the premise of this book would get old really fast but it didn't. I think this is, at least partially, because the book is read by a cast of voices rather than just one. This is essential because otherwise it would be virtually impossible to tell who was speaking without knowing the script of Star Wars intimately. That being said, I think it probably really helps to be fairly familiar with the plot of A New Hope to really enjoy the book's premise and creativity. Ian Doescher, the author, skillfully manages to stay fairly true to the style of Shakespeare and Star Wars and he preserves the defining characteristics of both.

    I really enjoyed the monologues that the characters take during the story, which helps keep the reader informed as to the character's motives and thoughts on the events taking place around them.
