4.0 out of 5 stars A must - before you starting writing, 20 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 20 Master Plots: And How to Build Them (Paperback)
I bought this book, "20 Master Plots", expecting to whizz through it picking up a few tidbits of advice. But what actually happened was that I became fully engrossed in the book. Ronald B Tobias talks the reader through plenty of examples of all the plots - and the examples make great reading in themselves, whether they are plots you know or ones that are new to you. I was especially enthralled finding out the older and fuller versions of, for example, Greek legends and Grimms Fairy Tales. These examples really help with the plotting advice in the book. Oh, and I finished the book with a set of notes and a to-do list for my novel. I might even get it written at this rate....Because it is Written

This is a really solid and very helpful read, and doesn't feel as shallow or device-orientated as other plot books. Recommended for anyone writing a novel - especially a first novel.

Bought several books on plot and structure and this is one of the best. Very concise and readable, easy to understand with useful checklist at the end of each chapter which is downloadable (if that's a proper word) from Writer's Digest. Would also recommend books by Sol Stein and Robert McKee on the same subject.
