William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace: Star Wars Part the First (William Shakespeare’s Star Wars) by Ian Doescher is another installment in the series () in which the author re-tells the story of Star Wars movies in Shakespearean language and/or style. All the books are written in iambic pentameter, in the form of a play.
I thought this book was the funniest of the bunch and I really enjoyed the illustration. Mr. Doescher wrote a witty book which made me laugh. I got some of the Shakespeare puns but not as many as I did in other books – I’m not much a Shakespeare scholar.
The fans’ bane, the much hated Jar Jar Binks is played off as a wise-fool, a great tool which Lucas should have used in the movie. This is another amusing read in the series, even though it is the least favorite movie.
If you don’t already know, this book isn’t for you.
