Read to Me Monday: William Shakespeare's Star Wars Trilogy

All Star Wars fans, prepare to be delighted.  
I mentioned this series back in the summer and wanted to report back.  
Ian Doescher has done an incredible job writing the Star Wars Trilogy 
in Shakespearean English, the whole iambic pentameter bit.  
He has captured all the characters brilliantly. 
Although I started out reading the book and did OK 
muddling through the strange English and the stage directions, 
our enjoyment sky-rocketed when we started listening 
to the books on Audible.  Now the voices match the characters 
and the sound effects add excitement and charm. 
It has been the perfect summer-time transition 
to our study of Medieval History.
