Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great beginner reading book My six year old picked it up right away and started reading. It's was so satisfying to see him enjoy reading and laughing along.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not exactly what I expected I enjoyed Brown's latest book "Jedi Academy" so much I wanted to check out these other two books I had heard so much about.  This was not what I had expected and I only thought it was OK.  A small book filled with one page comic strips featuring what it would have been like for Vader to be a father to Luke when he was a little boy.  An extensive knowledge of Star Wars is needed to get these jokes, especially the original trilogy, with some familiarity of the characters in the new movies also.  I didn't really find any of the comics hilarious, some were cute, some I didn't get and others I just didn't think were funny.  The art on the other hand is very cute and funny.  Vader looks so awkward in his role as "Dad".  I don't see this as being a book for kids.  To me it seems more aimed at adults, parent specific humour, and because of the father theme would make a good Father's Day present for the Star Wars fan dad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys love it! This book is really great. Lots of Star Wars references (of course) and enough humour to make me chuckle a couple times. My kids are Star Wars obsessed and absolutely love it. The one thing I wished I had known, was that it's a series of stand alone one panel comics, not a continuous story. I thought it would be more of a story book that I could read to the kids. That said, it's still fantastic and I would buy it again in a heartbeat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too too funny! Great illustrations, kept within the Star Wars universe, yet funny and readable to those who aren't immersed in it like I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So funny, and I don't even like Star Wars... I admit it. I don't even like Star Wars. But this book is hilarious. And you don't have to be a Star Wars fan OR a parent to appreciate the humour in it. Full review at http://letseatbooks.blogspot.ca/2012/04/darth-vader-and-son.html
