This was a really amusing adaptation of the Star Wars: A New Hope in Shakespearean form. The author admits to finding iambic pentameter a natural. I wish I did, but this was enjoyable.
I think he did a good job of adapting the style and tone of both Shakespeare’s works and George Lucas’s movie. I did find there was a bit too much of the Chorus, but otherwise, it was a very cute and fun work.
While reading this book, I went to see a production of Twelfth Night and it made me wonder even more how Star Wars would be on the stage. I hope someone tries it one day and screens it for the world.
