The only novel is based off of the trilogy. And quite frankly, having read it myself, its not worth the buy. All the text is movie-based, and the conversations are word-per-word as the conversations in the movies.

Studying at a university or college is quite difficult and that is why I use a wonderful professional platform where I can always find assignment writing help as well as help in finding materials of any complexity.

Each student working on the creation of a research paper should avoid applying unoriginal information. It may spoil his reputation, and the mark for the research project will be unsatisfactory. Thus, each person working on this task should carefully format all the quotations. A prolific strategy will be to compile a list of notes during the stage of gathering the data. One can also mention the name of the source, year of publication, place of publishing and the page, from which the quotations were taken.
