My Opinion:
I think this is one of the best books that has references to all of the movies made in a series. It covers the newest and the oldest, and puts it in a format that makes more sense than if you watched the movies in sequence.
The best  part is, being a Star Wars fan, you actually learn information you may not have known previously. An example, I have seen all the films, but had no idea what a valuable, strong and important character Mace, (Samuel L. Jackson), was. Then I read this book, and it tells you all about his powers, and why he is so very important. Things you just don't catch or even get told in the movies.
So believe when I say, it may be a book geared for kids, but it's the adult who watched the original over 20 years ago that will really love this one!

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
