Title: The Empire Striketh Back
Series: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars
Author: Ian Doescher
Rating: 4 of 5 Battle Axes
Format: Audio book
The Star Wars Saga continues, but in addition to iambec pentameter, we also get haiku (5-7-5) and prose. Prose from Boba Fett.
My first audio book. I listened to this going to and from work and it worked very well. Since I already knew the story, it was easy to just listen and go with the flow.
I have to say, this was a much BETTER version than just reading it. Shakespeare is meant to be on the stage and since Doescher copies it all, this is meant to be read aloud too.
In regards to audio, I still don’t think it is for me. I find it too easy to simply relegate what I am hearing as background noise and hence simply tune it out. After the next book in this trilogy, I’ll probably look for some of Shakespeare’s plays and simply listen to them as well. My commute is only about 20min, so that is a good amount of time for little chunks of audio.
