We all know how Darth Vader shared his big secret with Luke Skywalker, but what if he had delivered the news in a handwritten note instead? And what if someone found that letter, as well as all of the drafts that landed in the Dark Lord’s trash can? In the riotously funny collection Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth, John Moe finally reveals these lost notes alongside all the imagined letters, e-mails, text messages, and other correspondences your favorite pop culture icons never meant for you to see.

From The Walking Dead to The Wizard of Oz, from Billy Joel to Breaking Bad, no reference escapes Moe’s imaginative wit and keen sense of nostalgia. Read Captain James T. Kirk’s lost log entries and Yelp reviews of The Bates Motel and Cheers. Peruse top secret British intelligence files revealing the fates of Agents 001–006, or Don Draper’s cocktail recipe cards. Learn all of Jay-Z’s 99 problems, as well as the complete rules of Fight Club, and then discover an all-points bulletin concerning Bon Jovi, wanted dead or alive—and much more.

Like a like a bonus track to a favorite CD or a deleted scene from a cult movie, Dear Luke, We Need to Talk Darth offer a fresh twist on the pop culture classics we thought we knew by heart. You already know part of their story. Now find out the rest.

My Thoughts:
I felt like adding a ''dun tun duh'' to the end of that synopsis, but I didn't. Aren't you proud of me? No? Okay, bye (results into sing the rest of Do You Wanna Build A Snowman).

Okay, anyway. This book was really funny... most of the time. At sometimes I felt like putting this book down because it was so boring. But I didn't. Which I am grateful for. I'm not really a ''laugh out loud'' kind of girl, but boy did chuckles come out of me!!

This book was divided into little letters or texts or emails or other types of correspondences. Some were REALLY funny, and some were, umm.... not.

My favorite were the Superbowl halftime ones. They were about how they chose who was going to do their half time and it was funny!

I would definitely read some parts again. Looking back, I kinda regret not tabbing the ones I enjoyed so I could go back to it.
