READING THE TBR, DAY 288: The World According to Star Wars (2017) by Cass R. Sunstein

I am a sucker for books of essays that turn beloved pop culture into topics for scholarly discourse, and this one is a fine example of the breed. I can’t say I agreed with all of the conclusions, or even propositions, enclosed within these pages, but I thoroughly enjoyed Cass R. Sunstein’s in-depth look of the world of Star Wars, its place in our society, and the lessons we can take not only from its text (and subtext) but from each of our reactions to this entertainment behemoth.

I liked. I learned. I even laughed occasionally.

Especially when Sunstein claimed that Darth Vader is the best character in all of Star Wars

That’s just hilarious.
