Throwback Saturday: My Review of ‘The Legends of Luke Skywalker’

Yesterday I forgot to post a segment for Throwback Friday so today I’m featuring a segment called Throwback Saturday and this is an exciting topic for me today because this was such an incredible novel. And so, to celebrate this fascinating read I’m resharing it with you all. I hope you enjoy!

I’ve just recently gotten into the fascinating world of Star Wars novels and my latest addition to my Star Wars book collection is, The Legends of Luke Skywalker. This book is amazing!

It’s so exciting getting Star Wars books that are prequels to an upcoming Star Wars movie.

First of all, it was part of the three-month buildup to The Last Jedi and it truly does feel like a prequel to the movie. This story covers unknown characters who are on a transport heading to the dazzling city, Canto Bight, learning about the very interesting adventures one of The Last Jedi’s major characters, Luke Skywalker partook.

When you read some of the experiences he’s participated in after Return of the Jedi its kind of incredible. Luke was already an amazing character and hero but his journeys after the Battle of Endor kind of delve deeper into what it means to be a Jedi. Especially for him.

He didn’t have the privilege of having a Jedi council to help him through his growth as a Jedi master, he ultimately had to rely on himself, his instincts, and the powerful guide of the Force. It’s really fascinating stuff.

Yes, this book has pictures. 🙂

Another thing that made this novel so enjoyable were all of the beautifully painted pictures in this book. It’s not often when you get to read a YA/Adult fiction novel, leastwise a Star Wars book, that has pictures in it so that was an extra treat that I wasn’t expecting.

And this book’s author, Ken Liu, is an incredible writer as well. He brought such imagination and knowledge of the Force to this story that it really was a treat to read. I think I read this book in three days because I loved it so much and it has undoubtedly become my favorite Star Wars novel so far.

If you haven’t read this book I highly recommend that you do. Luke is already an amazing character and to read a book that covers just a small part of his accomplishments and adventures truly gives a different perspective of the old master Rey found on the beautiful planet, Ach-To. There’s also one portion of the book that will give you a completely different view of one of the greatest scenes of Return of the Jedi but I’ll leave it to you to discover it. It’s a really funny part of the novel.

What would I give this book? I’m going to say it’s 5 stars. This book is fantastic and I’m so happy I have it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force Be With You.

    1. Cool! There’s nothing wrong with posing with a movie billboard that’s off the chain. I’m glad my pictures have inspired you to have even more fun at the movies.

      Great suggestion for the title by the way. I just may use that.

      And I LOVE the hilt. If I were to have a lightsaber I think I would definitely pick that one. 🙂
