My favorite part is when Luke flies in an X-wing fighter the other Jedis as they try to destroy the Death Star. Obi-Wan Kenobi is my favorite character. I found him interesting because he is brave. Obi-Wan scared the sand people away to get Luke back to his house. Luke changed a lot in the story. He started as a farmer and became a Jedi thanks to a droid called R2D2. Star Wars is my favorite series. I love to read about Luke's secret father. It's just Luke and his friends against the Empire. The Empire would only get stronger unless somebody can defeat the evil Emperor.
I would recommend this book to both boys and girls who like long adventures. I think 4-8 graders will like this book. If you like to read about heroes and rescues, then this book is right for you .
