    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "To Thine Ears, Brilliance This Doth Be!"
    "Perhaps to tell a greater truth."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to William Shakespeare's Star Wars the most enjoyable?

    Hearing the asides from R2-D2. I have wondered for 30 years what that little rustbucket has been saying, and I found out. I nearly drove off the road doing so, but I found out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of William Shakespeare's Star Wars?

    The aside from Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first act. When you hear it, you will understand.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Daniel Davis filled the role of Narrator perfectly, despite my misgivings at the beginning that Star Wars (of all things) didn't need one.

    The Shakespearean stage directions were fun. I have been saying 'Exeunt Droid' for three days, much to my wife's chagrin.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, if I had been presented the opportunity, I would have. Probably best that I didn't. It might have killed me.
