#2 Books in 2016 ➡ Verily, a new hope ⬅

“Are you serious?” I thought firstly.
“Another try to get something from the Shakespeare hype. Or a new try to make Shakespeare readable for Star Wars lovers?”

I’m a Shakespeareaner, if this word exits.
I did watch Star Wars several time. Who did not know the work from George Lukas?

I really believed that the book is nothing to read. But I was wrong.

The book is basically from the 4th movie, which means it’s the first original.

When you search it, you actually will find it as part 4 (til 6).

I love the cover and how the book looks without the jaket.
Its so old and smooth. The writings are just like Shakespeare’s, so is the language.

I think it’s cool to get a Star Wars Fan into the William Shakespeare world.
Or switch it for the lovers of the plays.

I figured out that Luke loves to speak long monologues. Like Hamlet. And if you know Star Wars, you see the similarities.
Just thinking who Darth Vader could be …
MacBeth?
He also sees ghosts.
Of cause there is at least one ghost.
Shakespeare loved ghosts and a desperate love.
Ian Doescher writes at the end, in his after woords, that there is a connection between the movies and the 37 plays of William Shakespeare.
Maybe I should watch it more in that perspective.
Never imagined I could like and enjoy it. It wasn’t always an easy read. Because it was strange to get into the words by “Shakespeare” in a Star Wars universal.
But it was a really fast read. Couldn’t actually put it down.

Wenn die Magie verboten wird und die Liebe ausstirbt, was passiert dann mit einer Welt, die nur dadurch existieren kann?
