This series of 9 books has re-energized my love of George Lucas’ world. The series starts about 40 “standard” years after Star Wars: A New Hope. Although some wonderful characters from Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi have passed on during the 40 years, the main focus of the series is Luke, Leia, Han and their families. I listened to the audio books and I loved every moment that I spent with the series. The books are not as light as the first three movies were. They are darker and similar to the prequel movies (Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith), but it is a wonderful series and can’t be missed by any Star Wars enthusiast. You definitely need to have read or watched the six movies to have a good base for this series, but who hasn’t seen the six Star Wars movies? Anyway, I strongly recommend these books on either audio or in print; they are listed below in order:
Jane Austen wrote only six novels, but her wit and wisdom left readers pining for more. Impro Theatre's Jane Austen UnScripted gives audiences a chance to imagine the other books she might have written. The company deftly creates a world of love-struck girls, brooding noblemen and charming cads, and although hearts are sure to be broken, true love will win out in the end. Members of the cast will perform in costume, improvising a brief 'playlet' in the style of Austen, then answering questions from the audience.
“One of the funniest evenings in town…An amazing comedy troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.”
-Los Angeles Times Magazine
“SENSATIONAL…smash hit…ingenuity, imagination, and hilarity… improv artists at the top of their field… MUST SEE.”
“Impro Theatre's gift lies in far more than improv's expected one-liners and zingers -rather, their gift is the more subtle and complex art of storytelling…Austen would be pleased, indeed.”
