Review: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope

William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope
William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope by Ian Doescher

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I am in no way, shape or form a Star Wars fan. I’ve seen the films, but only because I felt like I had to know what everyone over at www.facebook.com/groups/filmclub13 was talking about. I’ve never read any of the comics or anything so chancing upon this in the charity shop near me was an odd find. It was one of those where I really fancied it due to it being written in the style of Shakespeare. If you’ve seen “A New Hope” then you already know the story within this book, but with added “Thou”s and such like.
Doescher does a good job of translating the standard american script to that of an English Great so big props to the author for his work.
Would I go on to read the others, looking at my “To Read” pile, probably not for the foreseeable future.
