#3 – Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher
Page Numbers: 176 pages
Dates Read: 12/31/13-1/1/2014!
Plot in three lines or less: There really is no need to put a plot line in here. All I need to say is that it’s Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope, set in the classic Iambic Pentameter of a Shakespearean novel. Could it SERIOUSLY get any better? I submit to you that it cannot!
New read or re-read? A new read!
Would you read it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would seriously read it again AND recommend it to others, especially if you are a fan of Star Wars, Shakespeare, or both! Seriously, you will laugh out loud because it is so hysterical!
Why did I pick it up? I had purchased it several months ago and had wanted to read it then, but what I was reading at the time and life prevented me from being able to do so. I was still on a “I need to read things quickly to start filling up my shelf” kick, and this was sitting on a pile of unread books near the top, and I just couldn’t help it.
Other Notes? I bought this one afternoon while hanging out at the local B&N before we headed over to a local production of a Shakespeare play at a park. (One of our local parks does this every summer, and we absolutely love going every year if we can!) We specifically went to the bookstore in the hopes of picking up the book, and we weren’t disappointed, as it was on display right near the front of the store. After we got to the park, we set our chairs up and waited until Two Gentlemen of Verona started, and took turns reading this book out loud to each other, complete with voices! (And yes, that included all the “Beep, beep, meep, WHEE!” from R2-D2!) Seriously, I cannot recommend this book enough. You will not be sorry that you chose to read it.
