Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter—and complete with twenty gorgeous Elizabethan
illustrations—William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the book you’re looking for.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way changed my opinion of the book.
With that's being said Omg I can not fan girl enough about this book I have nothing negative to say as I was reading this I could picture myself nestled into a theatre seat watching my favourite thespians on stage. There was humour there was drama and the shake spearing aspect was not at all overwhelming, because let's be honest sometimes reading a play becomes very dry and repetitive example Romeo and Juliette in high school just bored me to tears. But not with this at all.
Doescher does a great job of incorporating quotes everywhere. It ranges from the frankly ridiculous (Luke's "What's that light flashing?" becomes "--But O, what now?/What light through yonder flashing sensor breaks?")
to the apt application of wit (Solo's "Over my dead body!" to Greedo becomes "The day when Jabba taketh my dear ship/Shall be the day you find me a grave man" ).
I can see this book becoming an introduction to Shakespeare as it is both timeless and fun for fans of both the science fiction and the literary lovers of William Shakespeare. I'm going to gush over the cover because this book is beautiful I love the aged palate and take the dust jacket off and the book is a beautiful aged leather looking book I'm in love completely.
I will be recommending this series to every one.
5/5 amazing interpretation wonderful negative and totally attention catching.
