My Opinion:
This book took me some time to go through, mostly because I was devouring every tiny detail in it. And there was a ton of detail to cover.
It is an epic look at all the films, from the real beginning, not the 80's version I originally knew of, with every part or detail you can think of.
Awesome shots from the movies accompany interesting facts that will have you turning each page only after you have read each description.
I actually learned some new things, and I was an avid fan, so that was a huge bonus in my reading adventure.
I have to say, I don't know if young kids age 7 would really "get" the information... there would be a lot of, "wow, cool" moments, but actually absorbing of the information, I doubt it. I would say this is geared for pubescent teens, probably mostly boys too, but they would get a kick out of the action and adventure in it, and still understand the information given.
A great book for adults too who are fans of the films. It's really cool to see it laid out from Anakin to Luke and their adventures they have, but in book. I think a lot of fans would appreciate the layout greatly.

 5/5

Recommend? Definitely, yes!

By the way, Emily isn’t your real name. You died in an accident. You paid extra for that."
