Star Wars
The Secret Life of Droids (Hardback)


Author: Jason Fry
RRP: £7.99, US $12.99
ISBN: 978 1 4053 9139 9
Available 01 March 2012

Meet the many different droids in the galaxy - from deadly battle droids to helpful astromechs. Learn about their functions, their technology and their secret missions...

The Secret Life of Droids is a fun book that will appeal to young Star Wars fans. The design is bold and beautiful, with focus being on making this look like eye candy rather than delivering a text heavy affair. The cover is also impressive, with a metallic look to the lettering of the title.

There's something here for everyone, from a run down of the types of droid (labour; technical; social; military (which makes up the biggest category); and science/medical) to a look at how to choose a droid (a tongue in cheek guide which is also applicable to buying used cars).

This is a book that you can pick up, flip to a page and find something of interest. Learn why vulture droids are so dangerous; who has owned R2-D2 and C-3PO over the years; what the separatist army is all about; and how C-3PO relaxes.
