This is THE book for Screenwriters & Writers!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's the perfect audiobook for anyone interested in writing. It walks you through the whole process and sure it's aimed at screenwriting it's really helped me plan out a novel I've been working on.

What other book might you compare Finish the Script! to and why?

"Finish the Script!" is a streamed lined less abstract version of "Save the Cast!" Instead of theories and philosophies you get practical information that will help guide you through the writing process.

What does Eric Michael Summerer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

"Finish the Script!" is a mix of lectures, assignments, and example pages from a screenplay. Eric magically managed to bring all three together so that they really meshed and felt distinct. I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job at reading the book.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I loved "Virigin Dad," the fake screenplay within the book. Watching the characters get created and then getting to know them as they were fleshed out was fantastic. Not only will I remember them and their story but seeing their journey has helped me become a better writer.

A great title for exploring screenwriting

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. First, the author has "it",that specific quality that all great teachers have, the ability to connect to students and encourage them with their own personal passion for the subject matter. Book is easy to follow and would be perfect for anyone looking to explore an interest in screenwriting.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author is wonderful, engaging and informative.

Have you listened to any of Eric Michael Summerer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I'm not sure I have heard of Eric Michael Summerer's other performances before. This performance was excellent though, he is very good at his job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and no. It would have been easy to listen to the narration all in one sitting but the author gives homework which necessitates stopping for periods of time to complete it.

Any additional comments?

This would be a good book for anyone looking to expand their skills in screenwriting, to see if it is something they would like to explore further. Author is passionate about his subject and it shows in his engaging and creative teaching. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review

A good basic,

This book is good for beginners and new screenwriters. Beyond that it is too simplistic.
