I’ve seen the film more than a dozen times, but I had yet to read Star Wars, by George Lucas (ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster). I was surprised by the book, I didn’t have high expectations, so I had expected the book to be reasonable, and it easily exceeded my expectations. Perhaps it is the benefit of knowing the movie well, but it certainly appealed to me.
Usually I write a short description of the story here, but I have no wish to bore you. It is strange to read “Chewbacca growl”, I guess it’s easier to understand a Wookie’s body language.
A fun read.
On the 30th of April, Queensday in the Netherlands, the Hare Krishna movement organized a meeting in the Amsterdam. I was given the book Chant and Be Happy: The Power of Mantra Meditation to read by a friendly Hare Krishna who was walking by. (Although he could have been Maitreya.)
With interviews with John Lennon and George Harrison it is not just an interesting book, but also a book of historical interest.
