Verily, a ripping yarn ‘tis. Most excellently hath the author captur’d the idiom of the Bard. In paper format, a superior product. In the format of Kindle, in all volumes six mayhap, most grievous faults be evident.

A veritable plethora of format errata doth plague the word electronique. The ‘nom du character’ presenteth in the column per dialogue. Lone and solitary words do in serious isolation appear where a need not be for space, sans rhyme nor reason. Most vexing.

‘Tis yet evident that the minions of Amazonia do with depravèd indifference spit upon the their hallowed customers. Fie, do the elves editorial tinker with the parts most private of those who their lucre spend on the output of Amazonia.

‘Til the resolution of this matter most heinous, a pox on the house of Amazonia. A jester’s plague I call upon them. May the minions be struck with dire incontinence foul, yea unto the very melting of their bowels. Perchance they shall fail to satisfy in deepest intimacy their partners dear. Hah, do I damn them!!

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 25 January 2015
Sometimes clever ideas don't really work out as a full book - the idea makes the first few pages entertaining but then the joke runs thin. Not so with this as the idea is so brilliantly executed. Part of what makes it so good is that it's not trying to satirise either Star Wars or Shakespeare. Rather it pays tribute to both, and for those less familiar with reading Shakespeare it's also a good little introduction to how much fun his work can be once you get used to the different language and structure.

A refreshing take on the classic Star Wars Trilogy resulting in hilarity and amusement for all.

The books are a eye catcher for anyone whom is browsing through my bookcase and the detail of the artwork is really something to be admired. Even the book - the dust cover looks like an old book which is a nice touch.

Overall, a very nice - if a little silly - product for anyone who appreciates Star Wars and Shakespeare.

Decent purchase, boyfriend thought it was funny but didn't really read, makes a good gift but unless you buy it for someone who actually reads books the gift becomes rather useless and is just added to the shelf and never looked at again really.

Overall good product

I think this is a brilliant Shakespearean-styled version of Star Wars. I'm not an English teacher but I have some familiarity with Shakespeare's works and I think this is a very clever interpretation of how Shakespeare might have written Star Wars had he written it. I find myself really enjoying the clever turns of phrases within and especially the rhymed couplets at the end of chapters. I could see this possibly being used someday as a vehicle to take children's love for Star Wars and use it to whet their appetite Shakespearean writing and the Bard's plays.
