And some will make you sad.

It would have been great to see more photos of his memories - the front and back covers are great.

For anybody who was a kid growing up during the late 70's and early 80's, this is a must read book. Mr. Booth captures the essence of nostalgia perfectly for the era. There isn't one person out there from this generation who couldn't identify with the stories told in this book. It's amazing how much John recalls about his childhood. Over the years, I'd forgotten so much from my youth...until I read 'Collect All 21!' and it dislodged those memories free from wherever they were tucked away in my mind. Reading John's tales will even make you laugh out loud. And some will make you sad. Together with his undying passion for Star Wars, this book is a great dose of "remember when..."!

John Booth has created a quick read about what it was like to be a kid growing up with the release of the original Star Wars and what it is like now to continue to be an adult fan. He places us in his often personal and heartfelt situations and unleashes one's own feelings back to the saga. This is a great book for any fan of the films and a welcome edition to my Star Wars home library.

Format: Paperback
This book is like a time machine. It tells the part that Star Wars, and the merchandise it brought into the world, played in the life of a young boy. The memories he has of that period in his life are brought back to life and told in detail. His childhood friends, the local movie theatre, the toy stores, ... - they are all there, and at times it's like the reader is there with him. 'Collect All 21' brougt me back to that period in my life as well, as I'm sure it could do with many other '30-something' people out there ... this is the story of how it was to be a kid in the late seventies / early eighties and how it felt to be sucked into the world that George Lucas created : the world of Star Wars. Honestly, and I speak out of experience, it felt great, and it still does but on another level. That period in time was just magic!

Whenever you see a little plastic toy R2D2 do you smile, I do. In 1977 I was 10yrs old. That year I saw a movie that changed my life and ensured that I would be a geek for the rest of my life.
This book is about that genesis and that lasting passion, one that I share with the Author. If you like to smile, buy this book.
