SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Star Wars Essential Readers Guide - Pablo Hidalgo, Chris Trevas, Jeff Carlisle

Release Date: 19/10/12


From the original movie tie-in novel through the monumental "Fate of the Jedi" series, legions of devoted readers have helped expand science fiction's most celebrated film saga into a page-turning print sensation. Now, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of these sweeping "Star Wars" adventures is presented in one beautifully illustrated volume.


With so many books out there in the Star Wars series its become quite difficult at times to work out what appears where and when in the immense history of this phenomena. So to be honest I was more than thankful when this guide from Titan appeared. Not that I can’t quite remember what occurs when but I have at times thought that certain events had occurred in other titles and mixed up the odd plot line with another book.

What this companion does is split the tales up in the various era’s in which they appear with wonderful asides including storylines unused. It’s a wonderful companion and to be honest I’ve had to buy a duplicate copy as I’m loathed to let my brother anywhere near this. Add to this cracking illustrations, a knowledgeable history of the world to which the tales pertain and of course all wrapped up in easy to access sections make this a cracking title to own for any Star Wars fan. Great stuff.
