    3. Became a project of mine to read 'the Star Wars books' - and this was a great start. Loved it, and it really made me see Star Wars from a new perspective!Great and honest intro by George Lucas about how he approached the ghostwriter Alan Dean Foster, and it is great to see both of their talents on the page.Reading the next two currently! Love them as well, but man - Alan Dean Foster really started things off right!

    4. I read this just after the movie came out when I was 7 or 8 years old. I remember loving it but preferring the wonders of the silver screen. I curiously never went back to read it again. Perhaps I will someday

    5. It has been a long while since I revisited this, the very first Star Wars novelization. Having recently read one of the Timothy Zahn Star Wars novels, a couple of things caught my attention, partially in contrast to the Zahn work:- It's remarkable how the use of high-quality language can make such a difference in my perception of a story. This book introduced me to words such as "lambent" and "actinic" when I was only seven or eight years old. I happily devoured these new words because I wanted [...]

    6. For the record, I read a yellowing 1977 edition complete with "16 pages of full-color photos from this spectacular space-fantasy motion picture." Ah, the nostalgiaSuch a fun read!

    7. While this is a fun novelization of the blockbuster film, purists may have some issues with it. Some of the iconic lines ("Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope") are changed, whereas others are added, such as Obi-Wan talking about a duck, to which Luke replies, "What's a duck?" Still, fans of space opera will enjoy it, as long as they're not expecting an exact transcript of the movie.

    8. Actual rating: 3.5 stars.I grew up with having four older brothers. As a child I remember them watching Star Wars with Mom, but I don't remember the scenes from the films in particular; I just remember loving Yoda. (view spoiler)[ Really, though, who doesn't? (hide spoiler)]Fast-forward to now, in a galaxy far, far awayStar Wars is one of the most talked about science fiction film franchises in the United States (and probably in the rest of Western civilization): the space action, the lightsaber [...]

    9. Ar galima įvertinti mažiau nei maksimumu? Kai užaugi su "Žvaigždžių karų" magija, geriau tik perskaityti ją, įsijausti kitu kampu, ne tik žiūrėti ką jau kažkas perskaitė ir sukūrė filmą. Skaitai ir tiesiog pasineri į knygą, viskas taip paprasta, o kartu ir ne, jog neįtikėtinai įtraukia, paperka, įvilioja į "Žvaigždžių karų" pasaulis, jog norisi tapti dalimi. Sklendžiant puslapiais vėl ir vėl prisimeni, kodėl norėjai tampti Džedajumi, o gal Lėja, ar vis dėlt [...]

    10. This is going to be a spectacularly biased review. Also, I'm listening to the Imperial March while writing this. *I should do this every time.*The reason why I am giving this book five whole stars is because it let me have my childhood back, if only for the duration of 200 odd pages. Plus, I'm criminally low-brow. So I'm writing this review partly out of sentiment and partly out of dedication to my decision to review every book I read this year.So, again, how can I NOT like this book? It's Luke. [...]

    11. It's May 4th! In honor of Star Wars Day a long time ago (December of 1976), in a galaxy far, far away (Bluefield, Virginia) I was home from college for winter break and spotted this weird little paperback on the spin-rack of the corner drug store. (I believe it was Goodykoontz Pharmacy, but I'm not certain.) It looked like a nifty little space opera; I was familiar with George Lucas from THX-1138 and American Graffitti, though I didn't know him as a novelist. I picked it up and enjoyed reading i [...]

    12. Back before there were VCRS (let alone DVDs), this was one of my favorite books. Yes, I know, this dates me. I first read this book just as the lights were fading from the original theatrical release of "Return of the Jedi" in 1983. I never lost my love of the book.As much as people love the films, the books are better and go into much more detail.So I continue to revisit my old favorited refuse to call it "A New Hope." They added that later, after Empire came out. To those of us old enough to r [...]

    13. Usually novelizations of movies are not as good as the movies themselves. This is certainly true here. The Star Wars movie is fantastic; but it loses a lot when transferred to print.

    14. As with the comics adaptation, the novelization by George Alan Dean Foster Lucas differs in quite a few ways from the essentially "official" version of the story, the movie (and again, I refer to the original theatrical release, not the modified not-so-special editions released in multiple forms in the last 15 years). Perhaps the more notable differences are the nature of the political system and the ending, though the discrepancies in the political nature of the Empire - especially in Darth Vad [...]

    15. This book is based on a movie that has been around for years and has become one of the biggest franchises of our time, and has changed the whole ways of Sci-Fi movies! Star Wars A New Hope is the movie that started it all. The Rebel Alliance has stolen plans to the Death Star, a deadly space station built by the evil Galactic Empire, with enough power to destroy an entire planet. Darth Vader has captured Princess Leia, demanding the location of the hidden Rebel Base but not before the Princess i [...]

    16. “We’re a couple of shooting stars, and we’ll never be stopped.”“Someday you're going to have to learn to separate what seems to be important from what really is important.”What is there to say about this beloved story that hasn't already been said? This story and these characters are timeless. Been feeling the Star Wars love lately, so I decided to re-read some of the books. THere is nothing quite like the moment when you first read about Darth Vader prowling the rebel ship, or when [...]

    17. On November 12, 1976, the unsuspecting world was introduced to Star Wars. It didn't come in a grand movie, but in the form of a paperback novel published by Ballantine Books, claiming to be written by a man named George Lucas. This book was called Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker. This novel was actually ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster and based on the screenplay for what is now known as Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.It is interesting to read this, understanding that the Star [...]

    18. Não exclusivamente, mas especialmente, creio que este livro se destina aos fãs de Star Wars. Com isto quero dizer que, embora tenha sido lançado alguns meses antes do primeiro filme, com base no guião original de George Lucas, os filmes têm mais projecção e os livros funcionam como uma espécie de bónus para os que apreciam a saga.Atribuído a George Lucas, mas na realidade escrito por Dean Foster, as descrições em «A Guerra das Estrelas» não fazem - e muito dificilmente fariam - ju [...]

    19. I figured it would be a good idea to revisit the original trilogy in their novel forms after seeing the newest chapter in the Star Wars saga. In "A New Hope", the story pretty much flows as the originally released film does. There are pieces of the novel that made their way into the 1997 special edition releases, such as the storyline covering the friendship between Luke and Biggs and the encounter between Han Solo and Jabba The Hutt. In the novel form, it is never mentioned whether Jabba is the [...]

    20. “Someday you're going to have to learn to separate what seems to be important from what really is important.”Twenty years after the birth of Luke and Leia, the Empire has risen. Darth Vader, being in control, is trying to destroy every last piece of the Rebellion. When Luke receives a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by the Dark Lord, he knows he has to save her. Together with his father's old master Obi-Wan Kenobi and a smuggler named Han Solo they get to the Death Sta [...]

    21. If you're reading this review, I assume you have already read the book or seen the movie. To begin with, I love the Star Wars series. As a kid, I watched all of the movies multiple times. However, I had never read the books up until Christmas of 2012 when I received a hardback edition of the Star Wars Trilogy. That, my friends, is nerdy bliss. When I first read the books, they immediately soared into my top books list. The imagery in this book specifically made me feel like I was experiencing a [...]

    22. What a great time! I really liked how I was able to slow down and look at each scene and part. It made the story more meaningful to me. When Obi-Wan fought Vader it was much more moving to me because I had a deeper connection through the book. When his voice came to Luke it gave me thrill chills. The robots were like two children, C3PO was the big brother who loved his little R2D2. I loved the dialogue and interaction of those little guys. It was adorable (I feel that word is an enemy of my masc [...]

    23. This book is best described as Star Wars: A New Hope.If you have never seen the movie you have either been living under a ginormous rock, or have consciously avoided the physical embodiment of awesomeness that is Star Wars, in which case you are not going to be reading this book either.Being written by George Lucas himself, this book doesn’t offer any new material or further background information. It’s nothing more than a “book edition” of the movie. It is really fun to read but watchin [...]

    24. The old yellow edition I had of this (with Pages Of Full Color Stills From The Movie!) ripped in half right down the spine while I was reading it. Bummer. I don't really know how to rate this. It's pretty much just A New Hope, but with the deleted scenes included and some weird details changed. What does stand out is how consistently over-the-top this book is. I saw some reviews praising the sophisticated vocabulary. Maybe it's just a change in norms between now and 1976, since I don't know much [...]

    25. 4.5 stars. This book was great, and so truthful to the movie. I loved how there was an adding scene to Luke's story. We also get a new relationship between Luke and another character named Biggs. There were actual lines from the movie and I could totally picture the scenes from the movie in my head. There were a few spots that dragged on, and I wanted to see a little more action. However, the action scenes that did occur totally made up for it!

    26. Contains all the magic of the film, just as it did when I first read it in the 70s. Great from beginning to end.

    27. This was the only book of all six that the book add something to the story. IT was really nice to read this novel. The interaction between both C3PO and R2-D2 are excellent.

    28. Look, the movie is better. I don't say that often but in this case it just is. By an order of magnitude. I mean no disrespect to Foster here, as this is a perfectly serviceable adaptation and I enjoyed reading it, but the visuals of A New Hope are so embedded in my mind that any adaptation of the film was always going to struggle. This is particularly the case in the final assault on the Death Star, which was truly exciting in the movie and honestly a bit dull in the book, but the rest of the te [...]
