I consider myself an inhabitant of many different nerddoms. While I don't quite reach "lunatic" level in any of them, I enjoy lots of things. Star Wars is one, Shakespeare's plays are another. When I read that someone had written Star Wars as a Shakespeare play, I knew one book I was definitely reading this summer! I even got it pretty quickly from the library.
I liked it a lot. There was a Chorus, which isn't usually a favorite of mine, but for this story there is just too much that needs explanation or narration. The structure really works as a play and the author does a great job of translating the dialogue and action into iambic pentameter.
Here's the bit where Vader and Obi-Wan meet in the Death Star:
Vader: For certain, I have waited, Obi-Wan,
And now at last we meet together here:
Our destinies once and for all fulfill'd,
The circle of our lives is now complete--
A student was I when I left thee last,
But now I am the Master over thee.
Obi-Wan: Thou art a Master, Darth, I know 'tis true,
But only evil hast though Master'd yet.
There are also a ton of lines that are almost lifted from Shakespeare such as Luke saying "Friends, rebels, starfighters, lend me your ears". I definitely had some giggles recognizing the lines. If you enjoy Shakespeare then give this one a shot. it's a 6 from me!
