Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Multi-Voiced Performance, 2014

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.

William Shakespeare's Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the audiobook you're looking for.

    "great adaptation"

    love love love the adaption. I own all the books and enjoy the audio version - voice actors are mostly spot on, with one caveat for me; I'm not a huge fan of the man playing han solo....he over emphasized the drawl and it ends up making him sound corny. others may not share my opinion, so overall I say it's definitely worth buying!

    "better than the original!!!"

    Because every scene in the movie is so familiar, listening to the "Bard's" take was delightful. I have been an Audible subscriber for years and do not believe I have enjoyed any listening experience as much as this one. At the start a smile came to my lips and never left.

    Highly recommend.

    "Two thumbs up!"

    The narrations were wonderful! Loved the characters soliloquies, even for R2D2! The final battle was Well Done, you could see the actors on the stage

    "Great take on Star Wars"

    A true treat to listen to as you can almost see the play in your head. Expertly narrated by a brilliant cast.

    "Really fun"

    I found this to be so much fun. The author really embraced the ideas and Star Wars works so well as a Shakespeare story, it's easy to forget it isn't! I'm neither a huge fan Star Wars or Shakespeare but have greatly enjoyed both. However, in my opinion, combining them added something to both stories.

    "Legendary"

    I can't even describe how amazing this was! Plenty of humor but also a very interesting telling of Star Wars! Already decided to get the other two audiobooks of the saga. Get this! You won't regret it!
