Goodreads Book Review - William Shakespeare's The Clone Army Attacketh

William Shakespeare's The Clone Army Attacketh (William Shakespeare's Star Wars, #2)William Shakespeare's The Clone Army Attacketh by Ian Doescher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one was definitely an improvement over the last one (yeah, I know, that's probably due to TPM being completely unsalvageable in any form), but I still think this series would have been better off being left as a one-off novelty book with A New Hope. That being said, Star Wars being spun as Shakespeare is an enjoyable concept, and it actually does make the painful "love story" between Anakin and Padme in AotC better. And there's the fun bonus of picking out which Sam L. Jackson movie is being referenced in each of Mace Windu's lines. Still, I'm looking forward to the Revenge of the Sith installment coming out so it can be over, as these are the only Star Wars books I still buy. In short, it's a fun book, but nothing memorable as the joy of the conceit has worn off.
