Goodreads Book Review - William Shakespeare's The Phantom of Menace

William Shakespeare's The Phantom of Menace (William Shakespeare's Star Wars, #1)William Shakespeare's The Phantom of Menace by Ian Doescher

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The bloom is definitely off the rose when it comes to this series. It was a fun idea when the first one came out, but they've been getting progressively worse. It doesn't help that, when it comes to the prequels, the source material has an even bigger drop off in terms of quality either. Too much of what happens in Phantom Menace, like the podracing, doesn't translate to this format well. But the worst part is the idea the writer puts forth here that Jar Jar was just playing the fool, Hamlet style, to manipulate people. It's just ridiculous. I know the other two prequel adaptions are coming, but hopefully it'll finally stop there.
