William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, a New Hope - Ian Doescher Many of you would think, Shakespeare Star Wars? I have to admit at first I thought it was going to be awful but at the very beginning I was hooked on this adaptation of George Lucas beautiful masterpiece.

This book was well-written and personally believe that it brought on a new perspective to those who are familiar with Star Wars or have read many of William Shakespeare's work. I highly recommend this for those who have not or feel intimated when it comes to reading Shakespeare because I understood every single verse and have no confusion of the plot.

It does help that I've seen the films and it was exciting at times to play the film in my head and reading the dialogue. I love how the author brought out comedy relief with C-3PO and R2-D2 (who actually speaks at times instead of his constant beeps) and brought on an inner look into the adventurous Han Solo.

I completely forgot about that Luke doesn't know at the time that he's related to Princess Leia and was constantly portrayed as Romeo trying to rescue his damsel, Juliet (which was kind of disturbing at times).

I applaud the author for his hard work at maintaining Iambic pentameter and I literally cannot wait for the further plays to be publish and watch it perform on stage.
