Dear Luke, We Need To Talk, Dad, Darth: A Review

dearluke Such imagination! Mr. Moe really does get into the minds of pop culture icons in his book, Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Dad, Darth. Too funny! And to be honest, you tend to agree with what he says! Love the sarcasm and humor in the book. I mean, he had me at the title. Can you picture Luke reading a letter from dear old dad? What a heritage! This is better than the stuff you read in the newspapers and tabloids.
He also has some insane ideas for rejected Super Bowl half time shows, ( I agree, Tony Randall trying to pay tribute to great rockers, not a good thing.) The so-called journal from Bruce the Shark writing about his problem with humans. Bad humans, how dare they pick on him, no wonder he eats them! This is a parody on Jaws, a 1975 movie.
John has fun creating letters from the characters, like 007, ET, and more. He creates a whole new way of thinking about what they are really like. You think you know the story about ET? He got left behind and the aliens were trying to decide whether to go back for him. Boy did they have a tough decision. Secretly I think they’d rather just keep on traveling. And the Pac Man things, it’s their job to make those pellets, and they don’t like outsiders too much.
See, John gives the real story behind the people and characters we have come to know over the years. Yeah, that’s it, the real dirt, what they never told us. Now, about Luke, I’d like to know how long it took him to accept Darth as daddy. Hmmm…another book, perhaps? Come on, man, get with the job description and get some more dirt on these peeps!!
I received a free copy from Blogging for Books, in exchange for an honest review.
