William Shakespeare's Star Wars by Ian Doescher

I love the Star Wars saga(the originals, not the new ones)! And I have always been fascinated with Shakespeare's plays. Mesh the two together and you have perfection!

Ian Doescher has taken the writing style of Shakespeare(don't ask me what Iambic Pentameter is, all I know is it makes the verses in the play flow along smoothly), and the first Star Wars movie(again, the original, not the new one) and created a story of epic proportions!

From the first Act with C-3PO and R2D2 escaping to Tatooine, to familiar lines of Shakespeare(with a Star Wars twist) such as "What light through yonder flashing sensor breaks?" William Shakespeare's Star Wars captured my twisted bit of funny bone and kept me entertained throughout the entire tale!

I received my copy from the publisher Quirk Books. This review is my honest opinion.

Now be entertained by this fabulous book trailer:
