Return of the Jedi: Extended Goodreads Edition

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi - James Kahn, George Lucas, Lawrence Kasdan

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a Rebel Alliance of Jedi Knights fighting and defeating the evil Galactic Empire. You can find out all about that in this book and the other installments of the Star Wars Trilogy (the original one, that is). Or you can just go and watch the movies, which is actually preferable anyway.

 

Not quite so long ago in this site's neighboring galaxy of Goodreads, there was a book page for a book entitled "The Great Goodreads Censorship Debacle" by an author named G.R. MacGoodreader, which, along with a large number of reviews, was deleted by Goodreads management, striking back against unwanted commentary on the Friday, September 20, 2013 announcement of Goodreads's new policy, which in the opinion of those who had posted the reviews, had taken the site several galaxies away from the New Hope for book lovers worldwide that it had formerly been. For the deletion of Mr. MacGoodreader's book, no explanation was given whatsoever. The reviews were deleted on the grounds that they were "off topic" (though when questioned by the reviewers concerned, Goodreads management would occasionally also take to explaining that, no, actually, their particular review wasn't off topic, it had merely been deleted because Goodreads had concluded other users might find it annoying).

 

Yet, to those who mourned Mr. MacGoodreader's swift passing, fear not: The Jedi have returned – with light sabers, droids, and most importantly, a real book.

 

It contains, I am informed, many of the deleted reviews and opinion pieces, as well as a small number of additional texts.

 

May The Force Be With It.
