Ive read the character list and the chorus only, but i already can tell that this is gonna be among my favorite parodies, even books, of Star Wars lore. #currentlyreading

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I 💙 these books!!! 10mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa And if you get a chance, check them out on audiobook sometime...they add in the special effects sounds and score too! 10mo

I still love these, the pinnacle of geekdom I know, Star Wars retold as a Shakespearean play, you‘d think it‘d be old now that we‘re on the 8th installment, but no Doescher still throws surprises into these and you can tell he‘s having fun. Chewy talks, R2 snarks, Yoda uses Haiku, Poe sneaks in some of his literary namesake, and then you‘ll be reading along and realize there‘s some Donne, a homage to Ian Fleming, the murderers dialogue... (cont.)

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...straight from a Shakespearean tragedy. No matter how many I catch, I know I‘m missing even more and thankfully he tells us some of his Easter eggs (for lack of a better word) at the end. And yes, when the audiobook comes out, I‘ll listen to it again.🤪 (edited) 1y
Daisey This sounds great! I may have to see if I can find any of them. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I‘d say, start with the original first, an honestly it‘s a great read and even better on audiobook. 1y

Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thanks for the book tag. I looked it up and my library does have that one and a couple others on audio. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I hope you enjoy them! 1y
Bradleygirl These are SO EXCELLENT. So much love and labor went into them. 1y

That‘s why I love these....the fun liberties he takes. In the film, The Master Codebreaker is seen from afar by Finn and Rose, they never get to talk to him, but see him talking with his adoring fans.

Ian Doescher gives him lines, and plays them all off another Ian‘s (Ian Fleming) famous works, of 007 James Bond titles.

No matter what form, this part always works for me.

Hahaha...Shakespeare, Star Wars, and lets just throw some John Donne in there too. Tricky Mr. Doescher and so clever. 🤓

JazzFeathers Is this a Shakespeare retelling in the Star War universe? 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers Sort of... they are Star Wars as a Shakespearean play. They are written by Ian Doescher and he has redone each of the movies so far. They are fun to read, and if you can get your hands on any of the audiobooks, I highly recommend them, they are read by a cast with musical score and sound effects. (edited) 1y

Although I usually wait for these on audiobook, read by a full cast with Star Wars sound effects,I am completely loving these little drawings.

Doescher‘s version of the classic opening scrawl, I do so love these editions. Such a great mix between Star Wars and Shakespeare.

Parts were brilliant, other parts I didn't care for, but overall an interesting and meaningful adaptation.
