Sampled Book 4: Star Wars: So You Want to Be a Jedi

Star Wars: So You Want to Be a Jedi, by Adam Gidwitz

The annoying second person voice in the Luke chapters made me cringe. Just like "The Princess, the Scoundrel & the Farm Boy," this book is all exposition. Lost is the joy of discovery as the story unfolds. 

The voice changes to third person in the Han chapters. That's just wrong.

There are annoying cultural references, like comparing C3PO to a golden Tin Man, that have no place in the Star Wars universe.

There are redeeming aspects. The lessons are fun.
