Product Description

Amazon Review

This volume contains a reissue of the novelisations of Star Wars: A New Hope, written by George Lucas himself, The Empire Strikes Back by Donald F. Glut and The Return of the Jedi by James Kahn. The three novels have also been reissued separately but, if you want to buy them all, this omnibus volume is better value for money.

These were the first Star Wars novels and, to a reader familiar with the more recent written adventures, they lack the wealth of background detail that has developed over the past 20 years. The plots are simpler, each one based around a few big action sequences, and the many alien species have yet to come fully into focus. But the adventure is there, the clarity of the struggle between good and evil, and the simultaneous messiness that makes these galaxy-spanning adventures seem so authentic: technology that doesn't always work, and real people struggling to live their lives amongst often hostile circumstances.

Reading offers a different kind of entertainment from watching a film, and although these stories will be well-known to most readers, there is still something about using one's own imagination to reconstruct the characters and settings that is extremely satisfying and makes the experience more than just a repetition of familiar plots. --Elizabeth Sourbut

Format: Paperback
A must for any self-respecting Star Wars fan out there!
Everything from the original three movies is in here and its absolutely fantastic. What's more you gain a better insight into the characters' thoughts and feelings through the books - something just not possible in film.
I couldn't put it down and read it all in about three days.
Everything a fan would want!

If you have seen the film and not read this then you must.
It will give you a deeper look into the films and also have a few extra's in there which help with the plot.
A must read for any Star Wars fan
