Mehso-so

An almost too modern and meta Shakespearean adaptation. For the full review, visit http://benjamin-m-weilert.com/index.php/2019/10/30/book-the-force-doth-awaken-20...

Book 8 - a return to one of my favorite audiobook series, Shakespearean adaptations of the Star Wars movies. This is episode 7. Doescher is a talented poet and playwright and always masterfully adapts these stories, throwing in humorous sections throughout (a monologue comparing the original trilogy to the new; riffing on Dickens titles, writing BB8's bleeps in code). The full cast #audiobook performance with sound and music shines. 4.5 🌟

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I love this whole series SO much! 1y
Bradleygirl @Riveted_Reader_Melissa they're amazingly well done. This made me like TFA a lot better than watching it in the theater! 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Bradleygirl If you ever get a chance, checkout the audiobooks of this series too, they are read by a full cast and so much fun! 1y
Bradleygirl @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 😲 I honestly never thought of that. That sounds like a great time! 1y

When you've got four audiobooks due at the library within two and three days of each other, you're not listening to much else at work. 😂

I'll be honest, I liked The Force Awakens well enough. But I liked this so much more. I think this one's my favorite.

I get that, worrying about a movie's run time there's a lot that can get sacrificed for time. But I was truly impressed with how much more character depth this retelling provided. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

A great diversion this weekend, I‘m glad I checked the physical book out of the library to go with my audiobook. It was a great way to make my nerdy heart happy today!

R2 and Chewbacca speak, Rathtars sing, and so much more in this newest edition.

TricksyTails 😍😍😍 I want this!! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TricksyTails I totally recommend starting with the original trilogy if you haven‘t already. And the audiobooks are awesome! 2y
TricksyTails Good idea! I‘ll look for the audiobooks! Thanks for the recommendation! 🤗 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TricksyTails The audiobooks have the original score, and are read by a complete cast. 2y
TricksyTails You had me at “original score”! ♥️♥️♥️ 2y

These are the droids I‘m looking for!

Utopiyll 😂😂 This looks great! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Utopiyll I really loved the Original Trilogy done this way. I got them from audible and they are read by a full cast. 2y
GeekGrl82 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I have to ask, how do they portray the droids in the cast? 2y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GeekGrl82 I‘m the original trilogy, yes! R2D2 had dialogue, and played kind of a Puck-like role in the story. So far BB8 just has beeps and I‘m kind of disappointed, but maybe that will change as I go along, I just started this one this afternoon. 2y
GeekGrl82 I might have to get these on audio... 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GeekGrl82 I definitely recommend them on audio, check your library too, they may have them. I originally found them on Scribed, but I didn‘t stay with that service and instead bought them on audible. It‘s read by a full cast just like a Shakespearean play. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GeekGrl82 In this one BB8 still beeps, but Chewbacca has lines, and the Rathtars have a song 👍😂 2y
GeekGrl82 Definitely going to have to get these on Audio. 2y
Gezemice So cool! Reminds me that I had a project with my daughter to read them but we fell off the wagon. We need to do it! She is now old enough that she reads to me :) 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice Go with the audiobooks too, they are read by a full cast like a play. 👍 2y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Awesome! I should try it! 2y

The Rathars' song is especially delightful on the audio book. It reminded be of a very simplified Hefflelump and Woozle ditty.

OHHHH I knew he was going to do another one!! #shakespeare #remixes #starwars
I am such a sucker for these. I never pre-order stuff, but I cannot help it.
And I wasn't even that fond of The Force Awakens.
