5-Minute Stories Strike Back Review

After I scored big by grabbing the “5-Minute Stories Strike Back” book from Sam’s Club for half off due to their massive closure, I promised a review of the said book. This, well this is that review.

I will admit, I bought 5-Minute Stories Strike Back for three reasons. One: It is Star Wars related and I gravitate towards all things Star Wars. Two: I was at Sam’s Club and everything was 50% off, so it was basically the deal seeking shopper in me demanding I buy a book. Three: It is 5-minute stories. These types of stories are perfect for a quick Star Wars fix, reading as Bedtime stories, or a quick story to pass the time with the family to encourage reading. The last one, I would say is the most important.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The stories of these galactic adventures have captured the imagination of an all new generation. With the popularity of Star Wars at an all time sky high, every kid I know recognizes the sound of a lightsaber. We have seen it in many YouTube videos where kids have their very own “laser sword” battles.

To save the house from possible lightsaber destruction, Disney released an epic way for everyone to enjoy all things Star Wars: A book featuring Star Wars in 5-minutes stories called, “5-Minute Stories Strike Back.” Every story in the book is a quick scene from one of the main Star Wars films: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, AND The Last Jedi. With 12 stories in total, this book is an epic tale of the Star Wars saga.

The Stories are:

  1. Short Negotiations
  2. Adventures in the Arena
  3. The Duel for Peace
  4. A Journey Begins
  5. Trapped in the Death Star
  6. Clash at Cloud City
  7. Death Star Battle
  8. Finn and Poe Team Up!
  9. Mission to Maz
  10. The Fight in the Foreest
  11. Poe’s Plan
  12. Captured in Canto Bight

Each story comes fully illustrated with wonderful pictures featuring all the main characters and epic star ship battles to help move the story along and enhance the imagination of all those reading or listening. It is a picture book for the Geek in all of us. (see image above).

The hardcover of the book is made of thick cardboard with a nice cushion-like cover. This makes the cover thick, durable, and somewhat soft, however, I wouldn’t use it as a pillow. Although with 184 pages, it is almost big enough to be a pillow. 🙂 The pages are thick making them durable as well, which is a plus when kids will be wanting to turn the pages themselves to see the next image or scene.

5-Minute Stories Strike Back has a suggested retail price of $12.99 US, which is amazing for this size of book. 5-Minute Stories Strike Back is meant for children 3 and up. That means us adults can enjoy it as well…we are included in that “up” part.

With amazing stories from all 8 main Star Wars films, a beautiful cushion cover and thick pages, and an amazing price, 5-Minute Stories Strike Back deserves a 5-star review.

Goodbye To My Sam’s Club, Hello Surprise!

I love it when a little surprise fall into my lap! For example, I just grabbed the Star Wars Book: 5-Minute Stories Strike Back from Sam’s Club. Normally, this wouldn’t be any kind of news for a Star Wars fan such as myself, but as it turns out, the Sam’s clubs here are all closing down. Out of the 63 stores closing their doors, it just so happens that the three nearest me are closing. It is a very sad day for all the Sam’s Club members. Well, maybe not a sad day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I didn’t really see any tears shed at the thought of all these Sam’s Club stores closing. Instead, there were lines of people waiting to get into the store to take advantage of the 50% off store wide sale. While I was not crazy enough to stand in line for hours just to buy anything I could find, I did manage to get inside toward the end of the weekend sale and see what was left.

At first, upon entering the store, it looked like an empty warehouse with just a few tables of items. The employees were condensing everything to get it all sold. The freezer section was filled with case boxes of buns, cake icing, uncooked donuts, and other bakery goods. The dog food isle had just a few bags of food left and some canned goods. And the grocery section had powdered sugar, candies, some pork and beans, and nuts. The whole place was pretty much picked clean. I really didn’t expect to find anything I wanted or needed.

However, there was a stack of pallets put together to make a table at the far end of the warehouse (the zoomed picture is above), and upon this table were stacks of books. Imagine my surprise when I spied the Star Wars book 5-minute Stories Strike Back, which features stories from all 8 Star Wars Movies! I mean, this book was recently released! Talk about the nicest surprise ever! Of course, I had to buy the book and take advantage of the 50% off. I know everyone in the house (including myself) will love these stories. 🙂

I ended my final shopping experience at my local Sam’s Club with a galactic bang. So, while I am saying goodbye to the Sam’s Clubs in my town, I am welcoming a wonderful book. Thank You Sam’s Club!
If you want a copy of 5-minute Stories Strike Back, Amazon is actually having a sale on them right now. I don’t know for how long, but it is a nice surprise as well.

Stay tuned for my review of 5-minute Stories Strike Back, coming soon!
