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.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Marc Thompson, Jonathan Davis, Daniel Davis, Jeff Gurner, January Lavoy, Ian Doescher/Length: 3 hrs and 35 mins

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!

  1. I’m trying to open my horizon to new genres, I’m becoming a little bored with almost everything I’ve picked up lately. That might be a sing that I’m ready to move on to different genres, and this right here, sounds good 🙂
    Thank you Felicia!

  2. First, I had to really stare at that cover, b/c I was pretty sure STAR WARS (b/c Jedi), but yeah, the wording was weird, but wait–is that Jabba in a red, crushed velvet hat?? B/c it looks like Jabba in a red, crushed velvet hat . . . You’re going to give me a complex, Felicia. May I never look at the (audio)book cover before reading your review ever again, LOL.

    This sounds hilariously awesome. I had no idea something like this even existed, but now that I do, I’m on a mission to find ALL of it. So THANKS.
