Product Description

Amazon Review

Although Return of the Jedi is considered by many to be the weakest of the three original Star Wars films, this is by far the best of the three novelisations. James Kahn's powers of description are stylish and assured and he plays to the strengths of the novel format, taking the opportunity to explore the inner thoughts and emotions of his characters in amongst the action sequences.

Of course, there is plenty of action, and Kahn handles the main set-pieces well. The struggle above the Sarlacc pit as Han Solo is rescued from Jabba the Hutt, the speeder bike chase amongst the giant trees of Endor, and the final extended battle as it intercuts between the two space fleets, the surface of the forest moon of Endor and Luke's struggle with Darth Vader and the evil Emperor, all of these are fast-paced and evocative, bringing back memories of forgotten visual details from the film. This is an entertaining way to relive the adventure, and provides a fine conclusion to the trilogy. --Elizabeth Sourbut --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the other two 4 Oct 1999
Format:Audio CD
I allread owned the other two SW audio drama's. This one completes the series, but was not as good as the other two. Seems like they were in a bit of a hurry. It is missing some elements, but still great value. If you are a true fan you really want to get hold of a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read 7 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a book for real fans, but is a great book. You can see the film in your mind. There are a few small diferences, but that's to be expected. For those who are interested, it gives you an idea of what the characters are thinking, otherwise, I'd give it a miss. However, I strongly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting read. 7 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book relives some of the finest moments of the film in great detail, making those scenes spring to life in your minds eye. You can hear the bikes race on Endor, Jabba the Hutt laughing and lightsabers clashing in the final battle between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader as the action replays in your head. There are a few tiny changes, but that's to be expected and makes the book that little bit extra special. This book also lets you see what the characters are thinking at crutial moments, revealing new facets of their character as well as their motives. I'd recomend it to anyone who asks me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Jedi on CD 27 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recall listening to the first series on radio in the early 80's and had 1 or 2 episodes recorded on tape. Never thought I'd be able to get 3 complete series on cd!! The infill and background they are able to put in the radio dramatisation is great and does make a difference when watching the films.
