"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

STAR WARS: THE ORIGINAL RADIO DRAMA (audiobook) by Brian Daley
If you are a fan of this series and have not listened to this version of the story you need to pick it up today - it is that good
Published by HighBridge Audio.
Originally broadcast in 1981.
Duration: approximately 6 hours.
When Star Wars was at the height of its popularity in 1981, George Lucas gave a National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate permission to create a radio drama of the original movie, now known as Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope. Sci-fi author Brian Daley was tapped to adapt the movies since he had experience with the series having written a trilogy of Han Solo novels in 1979 and 1980.
The audio drama features the original actors Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and Anthony Daniels as C3P0 as well as music from the original Academy Award-winning soundtrack as well as original sound effects that make the experience complete.
If you are a fan of this series and have not listened to this version of the story you need to pick it up today - it is that good.
I rate this audiobook 5 stars out of 5.
