Dear Luke We Need to Talk Darth by John Moe
Publisher: Random House LLC
Publication Date: June 10, 2014
“We all know how Darth Vader shared his big secret with Luke Skywalker, but what if he had delivered the news in a handwritten note instead? And what if someone found that letter, as well as all of the drafts that landed in the Dark Lord’s trash can? In the riotously funny collection Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth, John Moe finally reveals these lost notes alongside all the imagined letters, e-mails, text messages, and other correspondences your favorite pop culture icons never meant for you to see.
From The Walking Dead to The Wizard of Oz, from Billy Joel to Breaking Bad, no reference escapes Moe’s imaginative wit and keen sense of nostalgia. Read Captain James T. Kirk’s lost log entries and Yelp reviews of The Bates Motel and Cheers. Peruse top secret British intelligence files revealing the fates of Agents 001–006, or Don Draper’s cocktail recipe cards. Learn all of Jay-Z’s 99 problems, as well as the complete rules of Fight Club, and then discover an all-points bulletin concerning Bon Jovi, wanted dead or alive—and much more.
Like a like a bonus track to a favorite CD or a deleted scene from a cult movie, Dear Luke, We Need to Talk Darth offer a fresh twist on the pop culture classics we thought we knew by heart. You already know part of their story. Now find out the rest.”
When I read the title of this book I was super excited, I loved the thought of seeing these shows and movies that we all love from a different perspective. When I opened it up and started reading it I was not disappointed, I read EVERY story that was in the book including the ones that were about shows that I had never watched. While I didn’t completely understand those stories they still brought a smile to my face. “Concerning Bon Jovi, Wanted Dead or Alive” was by far my favorite of the stories as it was told as as a police memo from H. Locklear, LOVE it.
Other stories range from the shark from Jaws trying to go vegetarian and keeping a diary about it to the complete rules of Fight club. Every story is just as funny as the one before it and everyone should be able to find a story they love in this book. If this sounds like something you’d like head over to purchase by clicking here.
