REVIEW⤏ FROM A CERTAIN POINT OF VIEW



SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS⇣
Forty years. Forty stories.

In honor of the fortieth anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, this collection features Star Wars stories by bestselling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from Star Wars literary history. More than forty authors have lent their unique vision to forty “scenes,” each retelling a different moment from the original Star Wars film, but with a twist: Every scene is told from the point of view of a background character. Whether it’s the X-wing pilots who helped Luke destroy the Death Star or the stormtroopers who never quite could find the droids they were looking for, Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View places the classic movie in a whole new perspective, and celebrates the influence and legacy of the unparalleled cultural phenomenon, Star Wars.

    **This one isn't on Audio version...because it's in comic form.  From what I've read on reviews...I'm not missing anything.

    MY THOUGHTS⇣


    This is an entertaining collection of stories, it is even more fun to listen on Audio since the narration has basically a full-cast of voices and sound effects.  Some of the stories are too short and some are too long because I found them so annoying (Of MSE-6 and Men) and one of them is in verse (Palpatine) and I don't really like that sort of thing.  But all in all, I really enjoyed most of them.  The chart above is from the Wookieepedia, and someone has put some time in explaining each of these stories in relevance to the OG Star Wars Movie (A New Hope).  The number after each story title is MY ratings for each, not the Wiki.
