My favorite of the SW films. ( )

Out of the original trilogy this is my favorite book. The Empire Strikes back has a lot that happens, very detailed and it goes with the whole plot of the series. I didn't expect to like it after A New Hope was painful to get through, but this episode really gets to what the series is about. One thing I have to complain about is the revelation scene, over the years there has been so much hype about it and I'm sure in the movie it comes off better but in the book it was just terrible and I ended up laughing. Other than that I enjoyed the episode. ( )

Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker. Father vs. son. An amazing all-new novelization that will tie in with the blockbuster classic Star Wars DVD. ( )

It takes no small talent to start with the best of the Star Wars films and turn it into something boring, but Donald F. Glut's novelization of Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back somehow manages it. Full of bad dialogue and dull narration, the novel adds nothing to the film and lacks most of what made Episode V so enjoyable.

Book description
The adventures of Luke Skywalker did not end with the destruction of the Death Star....

Though the Rebel Alliance won a significant battle, the war against the Empire has just begun.

Several months have passed, and the Rebels have established a hidden outpost on the frozen wasteland of Hoth. But even on that icy, backwater planet, they could not escape the evil Darth Vader's notice for long.

Soon, Luke, Han, Princess Leia, and their faithful companions will be forced to flee, scattering in all directions--with the Dark Lord's minions in fevered pursuit...

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0345283929, Mass Market Paperback)

Perhaps you think the Star Wars trilogy cannot be fully realized with audio alone. You think you'd miss the stunning visuals, the emotions of the actors, and the special effects. You think it would be a disappointment. As Yoda might say, "So impossible is it? So certain are you?" This production of The Empire Strikes Back was created by the same team that produced National Public Radio's amazingly successful presentation of Star Wars: The Original Radio Drama in 1981. Presented in 10 episodes, the longer format allows for a great expansion of the story and new scenes--though purists may be disappointed by the slight but significant change in the story line while the Rebels are on Hoth. Once again, Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels are on hand to reprise their roles as Luke Skywalker and C-3PO, and this time they are joined by Billy Dee Williams reprising his part as Lando Calrissian. A fine cast performs the rest of the roles, notably John Lithgow as Yoda and the very compelling Perry King as the "slimy, double-crossing, no good swindler" Han Solo. Sound effects and John Williams's score from the movie have been remixed to help create a convincing soundscape--so good, you can really "see" the movie by listening to it. The Empire Strikes Back: The Original Radio Drama will thrill all Star Wars fans, whether or not they enjoy audiobooks. (Running time: 5 hours, 5 cassettes) --C.B. Delaney
