Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh

Commentary by Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams Midway through our Shakespeare project. Midway through the Prequel Trilogy. We’ve come so far. If you can believe it, we’re actually nice this time. Well…nicer. Are we just settling into the style? Is it a question of Ian Doescher feeling less attached to the Prequels and soContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Clone Army Attacketh”

Biweekly Book Review: Attack of the Clones

As a whole, the Prequel Trilogy is my favourite one. I think it’s the most coherent as a trilogy because for better or worse, it’s one guy’s vision, one singular story, it was planned out start to finish and it shows. But with any story that comes out in multiple parts, we’re bound to haveContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Attack of the Clones”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace

Commentary by Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams We’re back and we’re ready to get into these Prequels! I am a big prequel fan, Nora isn’t. Buckle up kids. It’s time to get weird and political, and make some QUESTIONABLE choices. Let’s dive into The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher. Overall Impressions Arezou: IContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s The Phantom of Menace”

Biweekly Book Review: The Phantom Menace

New territory, new format, you know how it goes! We’ve finally made it to the novelizations! Rather than reviewing the story and what it entails (because I presume you’ve seen the movies), I am instead going to focus on what each novelization contributed to – or detracted from, as the case may be – eachContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The Phantom Menace”

Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good

Thrawn is back! Well…”back”. For all that is name is on the cover of this book, he isn’t actually in it all that much. And unlike last time, people don’t even talk about him that much. He just sort of…is there. While other people are there. That’s not to say that I’m not still enjoyingContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good”

Biweekly Book Review: Skywalker: A Family At War

My heart is so full, y’all. I don’t even know where to start with this one. Perhaps along the lines of “Kristin Baver knocked this out of the damn park” because that is absolutely what happened here. I’m a fast reader but I usually like to take a couple of days to go through aContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Skywalker: A Family At War”

Biweekly Book Review: First Anniversary + Obi-Wan Kenobi Comics

Today I’m marking the one-year anniversary of the Biweekly Book Review and…well…safe to say I didn’t think this would last a year. This is partially because of my inability in the Before Times to consistently stick to writing a blog. I would post once, maybe twice, then abandon the whole thing. But then maybe that’sContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: First Anniversary + Obi-Wan Kenobi Comics”

Biweekly Book Review: Victory’s Price

You know what I was expecting? I was expecting to read this book, to struggle to come up with talking points, and ultimately to write a review that was along the lines of “yeah, that was fine I guess” What I didn’t expect was for this book to so thoroughly knock the air out ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Victory’s Price”

Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars

Commentary by: Arezou Amin and Dr. Nora Williams In time so long ago begins our play; In star-crossed galaxy far, far away… We all knew this was coming. It was only a matter of time before I started covering the William Shakespeare’s Star Wars series by Ian Doescher. In a new feature, once a monthContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: William Shakespeare’s Star Wars”

Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Into The Dark

New year, new Star Wars era, and now…a new book by Claudia Gray *squeals*. Of all the High Republic books, this is the one I was most looking forward to. I was not disappointed in my anticipation. Looking to the future though, Claudia is the only High Republic author who hasn’t been confirmed for anyContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: The High Republic: Into The Dark”
