Social Media. REBEL 1 I won't mention the name to keep my review spoil-free, but it's obvious to anyone who's seen the movie. The princess shall have no escape this time! I turn to thee, thou rebel. In "The Gifts of Imperfection," Brene Brown, a leading expert on shame, authenticity, and belonging, shares ten guideposts on the power of Wholehearted living a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.
Ian Doescher does his research. This is not only reflected in the different way each character speaks as noted in the final note of this book as well as in interviews , but also in how he PORTRAYS each character.
Notably, in this installment, are Jar Jar and Qui-Gon. Before I review anything else, let me begin with those two. Jar Jar: Jar Jar acts a fool, but is quite intelligent.
He is very aware as to what others think of him and yet uses that underestimation of his personality to shift events as well as to be in the right place at, well, the right time. Qui-Gon is much more arrogant, disrespectful, and demoralizing than how I mentally portray him. And yet, he stays true to character. He calls Jar Jar names albeit a bit worse here at times, though the sentiment stays the same , including a simple beast. Too, he acts like him being a Jedi means everyone should respect him.
Again, we see this in the movie and in the books, but something about the Shakespearean language highlights it more clearly. Speaking of the Shakespearean language, it works extremely well with TPM. The beginning is beautiful, despite it being relayed by the character of Rumor. I love it and it sets the emotions behind the play very well. I like Rumor. The reader sees how none of the characters know the full truth of everything. That rumor is cunning and steeped in evil.
That the Dark Side thrives on rumor. And I love that Sabe is explicitly noted as playing Amidala later on. That tickles me immensely. He made it so Watto misuses language, and knowing that I understood Watto more. Having the race itself entirely from the stands with Qui-Gon ordering Padme and Jar Jar to do his bidding, the jerk works very well with the medium. Who this time?
I saw this book as a Book Bub sale item and I was immediately intrigued. As an English teacher, I taught Shakespeare's plays and as a college student, I saw "Star Wars" in theaters, so I was excited to see the two meet.
It could easily be one of the Bard's plays. Sometimes Doescher uses Shakespeare's exact words and phrases, which clearly describes the actions and emotions of the characters in Star Wars.
Another reviewer mentioned that this was given to a teenager to help him understand Shakespeare for school.
What a great idea! This was a fun read for me. I loved this book! I know almost nothing about Shakespeare, so I can't comment on how well Ian Doescher captures his style, but he does a great job writing in iambic pentameter. I found it very easy to read. This is my favorite in the currently 6-book series.
He wrote the books corresponding to the original trilogy before the prequel trilogy, and there's a clear difference in his style. They're all still worth reading, but the prequel books flow more smoothly than the original trilogy books. This is also the book I found funniest.
There are all sorts of jokes in his books, including lots of references to pop culture. Some are references to other movies the movie actors were in, and others are more general references to pop culture. You don't need to pick up on these in order to enjoy the book, but it adds a lot to the experience. Ian Doescher makes some changes to one of the characters in this book.
I won't mention the name to keep my review spoil-free, but it's obvious to anyone who's seen the movie. This added an interesting dimension to the story. It's another reason this book is my favorite of the first six.
