This book is awesome in so many ways. Whether you are a fan of Shakespeare or Star Wars this book can bring you to appreciate both. I have to admit the inside jokes were great, such as everything Admiral Akbar says ends with “..ap”.

The Han Solo Death scene was the funniest scenes ever. Okay the after effects actually, Chewbacca’s soliloquy, and Leia’s sonnet just had me rolling. Mainly due to their delivery, they never ended, just when you thought it was over another line would start up.

Do yourself a favor get this book. I especially enjoyed the audiobook because the readers/actors were very close in imitating the voices of the actors from the movie

Publisher’s Summary
Experience The Force Awakens as a Shakespeare play, complete with Elizabethan verse, Shakespearian monologues, and theatrical stage directions!

As the noble Resistance clashes with the vile First Order, Rey, Finn, Poe Damaron, Kylo Ren, and BB-8 are pulled into a galaxy-wide drama – in iambic pentameter! Star Wars fans and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike will enjoy the authentic meter, reimagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout. Chewbacca speaks! Leader Snoke gives a soliloquy! And the romance of Han Solo and Leia Organa takes a tragic turn that Shakespeare would approve of. The story may take place in a galaxy far, far away, but you’ll be convinced it was written by the Bard.
