I got this as a gift for someone to be meant in a cool/funny joke kind of way, but I started reading it and was thirty pages in before I knew it! It is quite well written in that the author does a good job of honoring Shakespeare's style and simultaneously does a decent job of following the Star Wars storyline. My favorite part is the way the author uses Shakespeare's device of character asides to allow R2D2 to talk directly to the audience - we get a whole new take on R2D2's thoughts and insights into what is going on and it is hilarious! This truly is the perfect gift for anyone who is a lover of Shakespeare and a fan of Star Wars.

So far I've only read half of the first book but it's been amazing. If you even sort of like Shakespeare and Star Wars, this is a must buy for you.

I loved these books. This is a great adaptation of the Star Wars Trilogy in a quirky sort of way. I am sure some people would have a problem with the Shakespearean speech, but I found it added to the humor of the story.
