Review: Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth
Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth: And Other Pop Culture Correspondences by John Moe
Review by Lauren

Official Summary: 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.
Review: This book is hilarious. I don't always find humor or pop culture books/jokes all that funny, but almost everything in this book had me laughing. This is a book that is easy to pick up here and there and just enjoy. You can bring it along for quick moments of reading when waiting in an office or on a school or work break. It's also a book that you are surely going to want to share with others.
Some things included in this book are a letter to the Grinch from his old dog Max, a teacher writing to the "parents" of the Peanuts gang (who she never sees), all of Jay-Z's 99 problems, and much more.
I knew some of the references more than others, but for the most part, I could follow these correspondences well enough. This is a great book for all genders and especially for those that don't read a lot!
