Jasmine (pikakejazz) Listened to this whole trilogy on audiobook back in February, before I was fully participating in this group. I'm counting it though since I am so behind on all the other weeks... :( Not a huge fan, but it did help me get through some of the more difficult times of my pregnancy (first trimester nausea) as I had to commute to and from work. So thank you, Ian Doescher for that! I would highly recommend the audiobook format; the voices and sound effects were pretty entertaining.

Silvia Turcios | 304 comments These books sound so interesting! As I understand (because I haven't read any of them yet) these books tell the same story than the films, but as a play and in rhyme! So cool! I want to read the episode V: The Empire Strikes Back which is my favourite from the whole series.

Yeah it is written as a play. I don't remember it rhyming a ton, but the whole thing is in Elizabethan English. If you are a super fan of Star Wars, I think it would be really fascinating. I felt so-so about it by the end, but I really enjoyed the novelty of the idea in the beginning. Yoda speaks in haiku, which is pretty cool, too.
