If you liked the movies, this book is something that you should find quite agreeable. "Star Wars" is probably not as well written as the other two stories(a friend of mine remarked that "it reads like a script"). Still, read it if you must. The writing gets better with "The Empire Strikes Back", but I think it would had been a lot better if Glut had gone into detail a little more. Still, even if it is missing something, it's still good. "Return of the Jedi" surprised me. Many critics say it is the worst movie in the "Star Wars" trilogy, as it can be constructed as weak and childish in some respects. Yet it makes for the best book of the three! Since it is best, of course, to read all three books in sequence, a compressed edition should be very convenient. I would recommend this book to most "Star Wars" fans I know. But on the whole, I'd rather just go out and see the actual movies instead.

I read this before the Special Edition came out, and was amazed at how much the movies left out...but then, I saw that Special Edition added scenes that were originally in the book (I am referring to Star Wars: A New Hope). But still, the stories just captured the setting and thoughts of all those characters perfectly, better than any movie can. I've read it again and again and never gotten tired of it!

If you want to know the original story of Star Wars then you better read this. It tells how George Lucas origanaly thought of the Star Wars Saga. He changed the story alot when he made the three movies. So if you want to see what George added and took out of the movie you have to read this book.

This is the best Star Wars reading experiance I've ever had! (Not that I've had alot) Within one volume, you get to experiance 'a galaxy far, far away' in a complete sense. To tell you the truth, I enjoyed the books more than the movie. I am sure that if you enjoy Star Wars, you will LOVE this book. The only complaint I can offer is that this book is a little much at one time. If you can watch all three movies in row, I'm sure you'll have no trouble reading the whole book at once. I myself was only able to finish the second story before I took a long break. In conclusion, GET THIS BOOK!

After watching the star wars trilogy over and over, I am still not tired of it. This book is the chance to get details never mentioned on the films. You can go deeper in each character's mind and re-live that amazing story. Increadibly, only the first book was written by George Lucas. And thats, on its own, already explain a lot! Go for it!

Wow! There are just some books that leave you in a daze for days (pardon the pun!) and this book just has to be one of them. Quick moving, action-packed, with just the right balance between drama and romance. I read it straight through without stopping, and just couldn't think of any way in which it could be improved! I saw all of the videos (although I could only borrow, not buy, the special edition) and I expected the book to be just the same. Actually, it was the impossible, ten times better, with parts that hadn't actually been in the films! I just simply loved this book. Goodbye, all you fellow readers, and may the force be with you!

This book is great for all you Star Wars Trilogy fans! This book has all the original novelizations(The original novelizations are Based closely or by George Lucas) in one volume! Somethings differ from the movies, though. For example, in the novelizations in the battle of Yavin, Luke is Blue 5. In the movie, he is red five. There are also some added scenes that are GREAT! It also explains stuff, for example, if you didn't know who was talking or talking to, this book would definetly tell you. There is a prologue that tells you about How the Republic collapsed and how Senator Palpatine became Emperor. So buy this book as soon as you can!!!!

This exceptional set of novels is the next step for anyone who has ever had the pleasure of experiencing the three movies know collectively as "The Star Wars Trilogy". These novels do not merely re-tell the story of a gallaxy far, far away in written form; but offer much more detail into every aspect of the stories, from Luke's relationship with Biggs, to Han's deals with Jabba the Hutt. This is one of the least expensive pieces of the Star Wars universe you will find anywhere, and one that you will treasure more than any.
