Review: KA-BOOM! Do you like action books? If so, then the graphic novel Star Wars: The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight by Tony Diterlizzi is the one for you. Join Luke in a fast-paced escape to save his friends.
In this story, Luke Skywalker, using his X-wing fighter, has to escape the Imperial TIE fighters alone to get to the desert planet Tatooine to release his friends who are being held captive. When they shoot his snow speeder, he comes crashing down into the snow bank to face one of the Imperials' walkers. Will Luke ever arrive in Tatooine? If so, will he be able to release his friends? Or will the Imperial fighters defeat him? You have to read to find out!
This graphic novel is interesting because of all the action that's happening. The writing style of the author, who uses a lot of onomatopoeia, keeps the story suspenseful, like when he uses words like "CRASH!" "ZAP! ZAP! ZAP!" and "WHAM! WHAM! WHAM!" The descriptive language about the technology (X-wing fighter, torpedoes, etc.) also makes the story more enjoyable. For example, the author wrote, ÒLaser bolts shot at Luke's squadron from everywhere at once. Ships on both sides erupted in fiery explosions.Ó I recommend this book to boys ages 9-12 because of the detailed third person writing style and the intense action. The main character is a brave boy, Luke, too. If you're a Star Wars fan, you'd like this graphic novel, too!
In conclusion, Star Wars: The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight is jam-packed with action, onomatopoeia, and more. BOOM! BOOM! Ahh! Gotta run!
