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
