Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

The production of this audiobook is just sensational. These elements help to get the reader involved and to create a perfect Stat Wars environment.
The story is just a little too short and with few details about the new Star Wars canon, but it does help understand the path of Luke to his destiny, at least where we know he is going to be on The Force Awakens!!

Bobby Norfolk plays a prominent role in African-American storytelling. But when he recently visited Africa, he went as a humble student, hoping to glean new insights, to immerse himself in a living oral tradition. He went as a pilgrim to the cities, villages, and jungles of Africa. Yet he was caught completely by surprise when, during a visit to an obscure African village, he was invited to a community-wide afternoon break at which elders told traditional Anansi stories and everyone else listened intently.

Despite Mr. Norfolk's annotations, the stories that he says are well respected in Africa, are transformed into child stories and narrates them exactly like that.
