Editorial Reviews

The ALAN Review - Tom A. Stewart
The Star Wars franchise is amazing in its endurance. A phenomenon some twenty years ago, it now continues to rate high on lists of favorite movies, toys, books, and even furnishings. The mythology of the films-especially the first one, retold in each of the "journals" by a different character who gets author billing on the front cover (The Fight for Justice by "Luke Skywalker"; Captive to Evil by "Princess Leia Organa"; Hero for Hire by "Hans Solo," with running commentary by "Chewbacca")-has permeated the collective consciousness, so the story will be familiar to young readers. The adventures of members of a rebel society in a "galaxy far, far away" who fight the oppression of the evil Empire and its dark leader, Darth Vader, has already secured an eager audience for these books. Unfamiliar, though, is the inventive way in which this story is told. While reinforcing the idea that the first-person journals are valid forms of writing, the three books read in succession will show young readers the importance of varying points of view. The style in which these books are written clearly illustrates the unique quality that three different narrators can bring to the same story, and might even provide stepping stones to such novels as Treasure Island and A Gathering of Old Men. Note: This review was written and published to address three titles: The Fight for Justice, Hero for Hire, and Captive to Evil.
