Is it weird that reading Star Wars in iambic pentameter helped me to understand character motivations even more than I previously had? I love Star Wars, and I love Shakespeare, but somehow the combination of the two brings a completely new appreciation for both!
Shakespeare, meet Darth Vader. Darth Vader, meet iambic pentameter. Experience the greatest sci-fi epic re-told in Shakespearean verse. A clever parody, a mashup of 3,076 lines, inspired by the work of master storytellers George Lucas and Shakespeare. May the verse be with you!
I loved this book! Ya'll Shoulda heard my grandpa read it!
So yes, the concept is freaking awesome, but it's really written in Shakespearean language, which means it gets a teensy bit tiresome after a while.
Magnificent, fantastic, and completely fabulous, this Shakespearean rendition of Star Wars will delight interested readers. It was done well, with the scenes in typical Shakespearean dialogue. To be honest, it was kind of strange imagining our beloved Star Wars characters all speaking in Shakespeare style (lol), but the author was still able to capture the authenticity of Star Wars, even in Shakespearean language. I loved it. Can't wait to read the other 2. ^-^ Great for showing to friends and getting their reactions too. ;P
Hark, a new hope ariseth within!
Loved it. 5 stars.
The premise of an epic saga such as Star Wars, adapted to a play and written in verse is delightful. The execution is... well it's a far cry from Shakespeare. This is the equivalent of putting a pig in a tutu and saying you can perform Angry Birds' Swan Lake.
What a great combination!! So glad I read this. Its very witty. Looking forward to the next one! Highly recommend. 5/5
A fun adaptation of Star Wars into the prose and style of Shakespeare's time, weaving in some of Shakespeare's real work along the way. It's preposterous- particularly in getting to hear R2-D2's inner voice- but that's what makes it work.
