Good nuts and bolts information on plotting

The information is to the point, and covers the major types of plots.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narration is wooden but serviceable.


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

No. I listened to several parts over again to absorb the information.

Basic Information: Does Not Live Up to Subtitle

If you've read a book on writing before, you'll learn nothing new here. I don't have a problem with that. Having the essentials of storytelling hardwired into your brain can't be a bad thing, so I don't mind hearing things I've heard before. That said, when you claim one will "Write Better Stories Faster," and you don't provide any original tips on how one would do that, well, I can't rate this higher than three stars. If the subtitle were, "The Elements of Storytelling," I'd have given it five stars.
