I expected to have quite a few laughs while reading Verily, A New Hope, and I was not disappointed, but I was surprised that it also managed to go into greater depth with character thoughts and motivations due to its style. Modern sci-fi action doesn’t translate well into a Shakespeare play because the Elizabethans wouldn’t have had the ability to bring it to life on the stage. The story and the characters were drawn through words instead of relying on visual effects for entertainment. This is something that Ian Doescher really gets in his adaptation! Because the movies are always moving forward with the action, these adaptations bring something new to this galaxy far, far away by slowing down and drawing out those important character moments.

I also appreciate that these adaptations really pull from Shakespeare's style in such a way that in certain soliloquies I can pick out which Shakespeare play the author is drawing on for that speech. This combination of Shakespeare and Star Wars covers so many levels of nerdiness and it is simply amazing. I’m excited to see what he does with the rest of the Skywalker Saga.
