    Description

    Experience Star Wars: A New Hope from a whole new point of view.

    On May 25, 1977, the world was introduced to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and a galaxy full of possibilities. In honor of the 40th anniversary, more than 40 contributors lend their vision to this retelling of Star Wars. Each of the 40 short stories reimagines a moment from the original film, but through the eyes of a supporting character. From a Certain Point of View features contributions by best-selling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from the literary history of Star Wars:

    • Gary Whitta bridges the gap from Rogue One to A New Hope through the eyes of Captain Antilles.
    • Aunt Beru finds her voice in an intimate character study by Meg Cabot.
    • Nnedi Okorofor brings dignity and depth to a most unlikely character: the monster in the trash compactor.
    • Pablo Hidalgo provides a chilling glimpse inside the mind of Grand Moff Tarkin.
    • Pierce Brown chronicles Biggs Darklighter's final flight during the Rebellion's harrowing attack on the Death Star.
    • Wil Wheaton spins a poignant tale of the rebels left behind on Yavin.

    Plus 34 more hilarious, heartbreaking, and astonishing tales from Ben Acker, Renée Ahdieh, Tom Angleberger, Ben Blacker, Jeffrey Brown, Rae Carson, Adam Christopher, Zoraida Córdova, Delilah S. Dawson, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Paul Dini, Ian Doescher, Ashley Eckstein, Matt Fraction, Alexander Freed, Jason Fry, Kieron Gillen, Christie Golden, Claudia Gray, E. K. Johnston, Paul S. Kemp, Mur Lafferty, Ken Liu, Griffin McElroy, John Jackson Miller, Daniel José Older, Mallory Ortberg, Beth Revis, Madeleine Roux, Greg Rucka, Gary D. Schmidt, Cavan Scott, Charles Soule, Sabaa Tahir, Elizabeth Wein, Glen Weldon, Chuck Wendig

    No One has Raved About this yet?

    Getting a secondary perspective on a New Hope adds so much incredible depth to the story and deepens the relationship SW fans may have on the film that started it all to an immeasurable degree.

    If you are a SW fan and it has changed your life for the better you HAVE to get this audiobook!

    And may I mention... it's canon...

    A New View of A New Hope

    What a fantastic collection of stories. Take a bunch of side characters who were bit parts in the original Star Wars movie and give them a story to tell. You remember those guys in the band playing the Cantina? Yeah, let's tell their story. Remember that little M1C6 droid who Chewbacca scared on the Death Star? Yeah, he has a story. How about the stormtrooper who Obi Wan used his Jedi mind powers to fool into believing that C3PO and R2D2 weren't the droids they were looking for? Fantastic continuation!
    There are stories in here from a ton of angles, including Lando, Yoda, Obi Wan, and Mon Mothra, as well as that red R5 unit who blew up at Uncle Owen's farm and the monster in the trash room. These stories fill out a universe so well fleshed out already. Even things like the stormtrooper bopping his head on the door make sense now.
    And the voices. Oh, the voices are so great. This book is just about the perfect book. What a great anthology of the Star Wars Universe's lesser known characters. I not only highly recommend this one but I, myself, will be listening to it several more times in the future.I have a new hope that they will do a project like this for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi in short order.

    These are the Stories You’re Looking For

    I’ve laughed, cried, gasped, snickered and smiled through this entire book and still want more. This is an ingenious idea to have the POV of so many characters whose appearances in the movie was minimal but whose contribution to the overall story was critical for the rebellion’s success. I hope they do this with Episodes 5 & 6 as well.

    Well worth the time!

    I have always been a fan of alternate viewpoints, and this is great. I don't care for all the stories, but that is what is great about an anthology of short stories. Some are great, some not so much, but overall the book is worth it.
    Some of the voice actors are also better than others. But the fact that this is a full on production makes it wonderful. I have always wished that audiobooks had background music, and this does and more. Some clips from the original soundtrack, sound effects of laser blasts, howling wind, a hyperdrive, and voice modifiers for stormtroopers and Darth Vader. It is awesome!

    wow! so glad i got the audio book.

    this book is a fantastic full production that any fan will love. I am a fan, meaning I've seen the movies several times and will watch again. I haven't really explored the larger universe. I was considering the hardcover edition but settled on the audiobook. best credit I've spent in awhile.

    these short stories are entertaining and full of sound effects. the voicing is excellent and brings you right into that world. a lot of love went into these.

    my only complaint is about the audiobook chapters. they are all about 5 minuets long and are numbered 1-200 something. this makes it impossible to find that one story you'd like to hear again.

    Odd story's

    My biggest problem with this book is the fact that they keep telling the same story over and over. Some points of views last for hours. Some of these story's are far too long, and are just bad. There are a few that are good, and some that are funny. But overall, I would say most are forgettable.

    Good and bad

    Since this book has so many authors and different story’s, some are really good and entertaining, others are boring and pointless. And the majority are just unimpressive

    Very fun

    An interesting look into the world of Star Wars outside of main story line; if not necessarily canon, still entertaining. The multitude of stories covered characters only glimpsed in the films but add a depth to the events of the main story line. Furthering the idea that the Force is intertwined and influences more than the reader may have originally thought.

    Some of the stories dragged on a little longer and more repetitive than I would have liked and some of the voice acting was rather annoying to the point I almost skipped a story or two but thankfully stopped before I did.

    All in all, a fun collection for any Star Wars fan than ever wondered, 'what's that guy's story?'

    The Worst Type of Star Wars Prequel

    A series of interconnected stories answering questions noone ever asked or wanted to know about Star Wars.

    If you are the type of person that needs to know what the bartender in the Anchorhead cantina had for lunch, then this is the book for you. If you're looking for something imaginative that adds to the Star Wars universe, skip this one.

    It's more checking off boxes than original and almost wholly devoid of fun.

    Shining a new light on A New Hope

    The idea behind "Star Wars From A Certain Point Of View" is simple, yet effective: to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original movie, this anthology contains 40 short stories which re-tell "A New Hope" exclusively through the eyes of marginal characters, putting them centre stage.

    The astonishing thing about it is this: From more obvious stories (e.g. the last minutes on Alderaan with the Organas or the attack on the Death Star with Biggs Darklighter) to more obscure ones (e.g. yarns focusing on Jawas, Tuskens or even the creature in the trash compactor) to tales merely leading up to scenes in the movie (like a telepathic conversation between Jedi masters or a story featuring Doctor Aphra), the stories in this volume for the most part not only *work*, they actually enrich the Star Wars mythos and provide a deeper understanding of the characters and their motivations. Many of the authors collaborating on this volume have serious credentials, having written SW novels, episodes for Clone Wars or Rebels or even having been involved in scripts for the movies.

    Consisting of 40 tales, of course not every story is going to be everyone's cup of tea. For instance, I tend to agree with many other reviewers who think that there's too much of a focus on the Mos Eisley cantina and its denizens, but overall, this volume contains far more hits than misses.

    Regarding the audio production itself: although this is not a full-fledged radio play (which I try to avoid for the most part), it is not a "pure" audio book, either. While most of the stories are read by a single narrator, some characters are performed by distinct voice actors throughout the audio book. The cherry on top of all of the excellent voice talent is the sparse, well-targeted use of both sound effects and John Williams' original Star Wars score.
    Having read the book first and then listened to it, I have to admit a rare thing: I think this audio adaptation is the slightly better version.
    Highly recommended!
