Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa managed to get captured during what seems to be an attempt on rescuing a frozen Han Solo from the wall of an evil Hutt crime lord, Jabba. After Luke defeated the dreaded Rancor, Jabba became furious and sent them on a one way trip to the horrid pit of Carkoon. How will the Jedi and his friends manage to escape this one? James Kahn has done it again, another movie adaptation novel that explains the movie close to exact. In Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi published by Del Rey, Kahn manages to perfect the mood and tone of each moment. It also includes 8 stunning full graphic movie screenshot inserts.

Yes, Luke, he was your father. That makes the whole sister thing just a little bit on the squicky side, doesn't it?

Anyway, we find out Han Solo is still cool, Darth Vader isn't stupid, the Emperor is ugly, and no Ewoks bleed when they die.

Throw in some space battles and some force cheese at the end.

BzzzzzzWwwwummmm.....ZzzzzZZZZZZzzzzz.....(szikraeső).... Nagyarányú "építkezések" pl. Birodalmi komp kartonból. Az ewokokat szeretjük, bár annyi idősen, mint mi voltunk túlságosan plüssálatkák. Közben a fél utca képzett jedi. Amúgy a könyv felejthető, legfeljebb megmagyaráz néhány dolgot. A borítója viszont tetszett. :-)

Return of the Jedi was the last of the Star Wars Original Trilogy, and so James Kahn had a lot more material to work with in his novelization than Donald F. Glut for The Empire Strikes Back or Alan Dean Foster for A New Hope. Consequently, Kahn seems a lot more confident with the characters and story, spending much more time on added scenes and internal character motivation. Although not all of this material fits with the later movies and Expanded Universe, it makes for an interesting and well-thought-out interpretation of the story.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0345307674, Mass Market Paperback)

Fifteen years after the dramatic success of National Public Radio's adaptation of Star Wars, the production team re-formed to create Return of the Jedi: The Original Radio Drama. Though the running time is scaled down to three hours, listeners are still treated to an expanded story line and new scenes. Another fine cast is assembled, with radio series veterans Perry King and Ann Sachs as Han Solo and Leia Organa, and newcomer Joshua Fardon as an excellent Luke Skywalker. While Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) is the only actor from the film, Ed Begley Jr. contributes a gravely voiced Boba Fett, John Lithgow adds a rather somber Yoda, and Edward Asner, hopefully not being typecast, makes a believable Jabba the Hutt--though only an expert would be able to tell if his Huttese pronunciation is correct. The characters of this radio production inhabit a stereo soundscape created by careful blending of sound effects and John Williams's music from the original films. As with the two previous productions--Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, Jedi is a treat for the ears--and the mind's eye. Any Star Wars fan will enjoy this production, even though it does mean imagining rather than seeing Anakin with his mask and helmet off or Luke defeating the Rancor. Besides, the Ewoks are much less annoying when you can't see them. (Running time: 3 hours, 3 cassettes) --C.B. Delaney
