1.0 out of 5 stars A boring story, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite being hailed as a great American classic I found this story boring, monotonous and with unsympathetic characters.
Perhaps when it was written it had the power to shock because of how the characters behaved but as things have moved on this shock has diminished into one big yawn

Fearless Creating: A Step-by-step Guide to Starting and Completing Your Work of Art (Inner Work Book)
by Eric Maisel
Edition: Paperback
Price: 14.71

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a useful book, 15 Nov 2013

If you feel negative about creating your artwork or even despair at times, even though you are desperate to make or do something creative then this is a good book for you. It will make you realise you are not the only person who goes through those feelings and provide you with encouragement and insights to help you progress. Some exercises do seem rather silly but can be taken metaphorically, even so, understanding the gist of these is still helpful
