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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

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.

By A Customer on 7 April 2001
Format: Hardcover
A wonderful conclution to a modern fairy tale. The film is brought to life inside your mind by colourful discriptions and explanations to certain things within the film you might have been wondering about. For example, why is Vader part machine? Where did Luke build his new Lightsaber and where did he get the parts? And what were all those Ewoks called? You also see what motivates some of the characters and what they are thinking at crutial moments, like when Vader and Luke have their final battle. The small changes give the book that little extra, which makes it a must for fans. Even if your not a fan, you will find the tention near the end almost unbearable, making you read that little extra, just to find out what has happened. Even if you've seen the film (or read the book) a dozen times before.
