Hi guys! My Fall Break is almost coming to an end (aww), but I was able to catch up on quite a few things I needed to attend to! Tomorrow, I am planning to go to the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville to see some amazing authors from Victoria Schwab to Alan Gratz (who we actually had on the blog earlier this year!). Today, I have a special review in store for you, and if you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ll certainly love this book!
About the Book
Why is Star Wars one of the most famous franchises in history? Why did George Lucas create a ground-breaking original trilogy and underwhelming prequels? Why do the Star Wars movies feel familiar and surprising at the same time? Can we predict what will happen in the next Star Wars movies?
The answer to all these questions is an ancient pattern used by some of the most famous and successful stories in history, from the Bible, to Harry Potter, to Star Wars: the Ring Structure.
In this book, you will understand what’s special about Ring Structure and how to spot it. You will see the Ring Structure reflected in other famous stories. You will learn how Star Wars applied the Ring Structure as a blueprint for its plots, characters, events, politics, or even colors. In the process, you will discover the historic ambition of the Star Wars saga, why its story is not as simple as it seems, why it’s so ground-breaking, and why it’s been so successful.
With that newfound power, you will be able to predict what will happen in the next installments. Like a Jedi, you will predict the future movies. May that Force be with you.
Disclaimer: I received a free e-ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This will not affect my review in any way.
How would I describe my reaction as I read this book? Mind-blown! The Star Wars Rings is an enlightening epitome on one of the world’s most beloved movie franchises and its hidden, yet carefully executed and thought-out structure. I chose to read and review this book because I thought that it would help me analyze stories better, especially the classics I have to read in my AP English Language class, and it definitely was a right choice. It has changed the way how I read books and watch movies, and it certainly has made me love literature even more!
