Say what you will about the prequels, this entry into the much-lauded Shakespearean retelling of the Star Wars saga is as brilliant as the "original trilogy" versions. The best part of this particular book is the treatment of the much-hated Jar Jar Binks, who has been written as sly and intelligent fellow, only pretending to be a fool. (his "normal" asides are really brilliant). As in "parts the fifth and sixth" Yoda's dialogue is in haiku form. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
