4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the galaxy wasn't all that far away after all, September 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Long Time Ago: Growing Up With And Out Of Star Wars (Kindle Edition)
For guys of a certain age (and the women who would like to understand them) this is a great book. It kind of blew me away with how, though we came from very different places geographically and from very different backgrounds & families, we shared many of the same experiences when it came to Star Wars movies, toys, collectibles, and the dreaded "Prequels". Though it is presented as a personal memoir, it could easily be any of our stories. We all embraced the cultural phenomenon of Star Wars - some more tightly than others - but we did, and it's not something that can easily be let go of. It effected our lives, flavored our childhoods, and (for many of us) still impacts our adulthood.

This is a very well written book - even if it is a bit on the short side - and I highly recommend it.
