One Of The Most Famous Stories Ever...
on 1 February 2004
In 1977, George Lucas unleashed on an unexpecting world a little known movie known as Star Wars. Astounding cinema goers around the world, it broke box office records and made dedicated fans for years to come.
This version of Lucas's story, reprinted and including a new Introduction from the acclaimed writer / director, tells the classic story of Luke Skywalker, a young man who's destiny is changed dramatically and is thrown into the titanic struggle between the Galactic Empire and the freedom fighters of the Rebel Alliance.
The story is told in a descriptive, flowing manner and grips the reader from the start, and gives more of an insight into the story, especially some background into the characters that were not shown in the movie. As a fan of the movie, or otherwise, I sincerely recommend this to anyone with an interest in science fiction.
The Force, you may say, is strong with this one...
