Hot on the heels of the New York Times best seller William Shakespeare’s Star Wars comes the next two installments of the original trilogy: William Shakespeare’s The Empire Striketh Back and William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return. Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter. Illustrated with beautiful black-and-white Elizabethan-style artwork, these two plays offer essential reading for all ages. Something Wookiee this way comes!

First Thought when Finished: You have to LISTEN to The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher! The audio is BRILLIANTLY done!
Overall Thoughts: Ian does a great job of combining Shakespeare and Star wars! I will admit that I didn’t listen/read the first two though I am going to. It made me smile and it was a super quick listen.

I think this the first 5 I have ever given on narration but this cast deserved it! I am just going to tell you that this was a freaking awesome audiobook. For fans of Star Wars you will be pleased at how well this balanced the characters we know with voices that matched up well. For fans of audiobooks, you will love how well the cast melded together. VERY WELL DONE!
Final Thoughts: Now I need the first two!
