Our customer reviews

William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher is the third in the series to retell the story of the Star Wars original trilogy in Shakespearean English. The first is a delightful book. The second one is more serious as the story is more serious. This one is as enjoyable as the other two. It does not have the novelty value that the first one did, but it is still a fun book to read. I look forward to seeing what the author tackles next. Read my complete review at: http://www.memoriesfrombooks.com/2014/09/william-shakespeares-jedi-doth-return.htmlshow more
