This is worth the read even if you're not planning to write a book. But then it might just inspire you to put pen to paper.
A lot of great practical advice, along with great anecdotes. Loved that SK himself narrated.
Pretty good. I guess the best thing about it was the telling of personal stories. The “no magic bullet” piece is spot on. I disagree with never using adverbs, but I suppose to each his own. The narration was good.
The stories were well structured and helped me explain to others the craft of writing. Regardless of the reason why I chose to relate some of the instructions to my students, the book offers an entertaining view on the nuances of the crafting of a story.
A can't miss for King fans and anyone interested in him, his writing and telling their own soul's stories
Great and inspiering!
Very good book. A lot of background information on the author which tells about how he got into writing. A lot of good information on writing with examples and understandable explantations. I'm not a writer and don't plan to become one, but I still found this book very interesting. And it's always fun to listen to Mr. King narrate his own books.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. The mix of personal memoir and concrete writing advice was entertaining and helpful and helped me to visit my own writing in a new way. It feels like a tale your favourite uncle might tell you.
Quintessential reading for every high school kid out there. Brilliant and funny. Many life lessons here though meant for the craft of writing. I’ve listened to it 12 times.
I know a lot of people don't like King's voice for audiobooks, and this is my first time hearing him read a book, but I really liked it. Added a lot of character.
informative, well written and narrated.
I love how blunt he is! Tells it like it is, straight shooter, doesn't sugar coat anything. Love the autobiographical aspect with the stories and the very very end with the life advice is the best part! Thanks Stephen!
Highly motivational and loaded with excellent advice for new writers. He didn't have to finish this book - so grateful he did.
Stephen King’s audio book was amazing because i felt he was sitting in the passenger seat of my car, rallying me to write. It impacted me so much that i bought a laptop and began writing for pleasure! Love this audiobook and plan to use it as a resource for inspiration!
Fantastic! Real advise for success. So glad I "read" this book:). And, thank you, Stephen King, for sharing your expertise and brilliance with the rest of us!
