Do you like Shakespeare, particularly when performed? Do you like Star Wars? Then pick up this dramatization already!
While the 'Shakespeare's Star Wars' series is definitely Shakespeare-Lite (it's got the right form and syntax, but is missing much of the bard's metaphoric language that makes his work both so rich, and so frustrating!), it's clear the author is an expert on the subject matter. It's the kind of thing you listen to because it keeps you laughing - many parts are just downright goofy (for example, the space slug's soliloquy), and clearly not meant to be taken seriously. If you don't like Shakespeare the gimmick will likely wear out its welcome, but with few exceptions I found it kept me grinning until the last minute.
A final note: the voice actors were perfect for their roles. I read the first play in this trilogy, and I must say - audiobook is absolutely the way to go. Fifteen bucks well spent.

This one was even more brilliant than the last. The wampa, AT-ATs, and Ugnaughts had me in tears of laughter. The climax of the film is done well and is still captivating in this format. If you made it through the first one and enjoyed the experience this one won't disappoint. Again, you MUST listen to the audiobook. It's wizard.
