Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back So You Want to Be a Jedi? Reviews
The negative reviews of this book are misplaced -- this is not a book aimed at adults and it does a FANTASTIC job telling the story of "The Empire Strikes Back" to young readers.
This was a really unique twist on the whole re-telling concept, but it worked really well, and it was a lot of fun.
Adam Gidwitz adapts "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" for a younger audience in his book, "So You Want to Be a Jedi?" Drawing on the traditions of myth and storytelling that George Lucas used when creating "Star Wars", Gidwitz explores the idea of Luke Skywalker as a cipher meant for the audience to project themselves onto as they go through the narrative. To this end, he writes all of the scenes involving Luke Skywalker in the second-person. This works well for those intending to read the book aloud to their children. Unfortunately, Gidwitz writes all of the scenes of Han and Leia on their own or of Darth Vader in the standard third-person, so the change can be off-putting at times between chapters.
