5.0 out of 5 stars a really clear explanation of what showing means, with good practical exercises, examples and advice.
Clear, if a bit repetitive at times.
Good for beginners and those with more writing experience too.
Good pointers for any writer of fiction.

3.0 out of 5 stars good practical examples and explanations
There are some good examples of show/tell here, using real world examples from books many of you will be familiar with. That said, I found it repetitive in sections. It would have been useful to have some of this distilled into some key takeaways or top tips. Towards the end there's also a lot of general writing advice which I wasn't looking for and while I'm sure it is...

The author gives lots of examples from novels and exercises for you to do. She writes in a concise manner, puts her meaning over clearly without rambling on and/or giving loads of theory. This is a book I enjoyed reading and will keep because I'd like to read it more than once. It's been of great value to me and well worth the money I paid for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars good practical examples and explanations, 15 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Show Don't Tell: The Ultimate Writers' Guide (Kindle Edition)
There are some good examples of show/tell here, using real world examples from books many of you will be familiar with. That said, I found it repetitive in sections. It would have been useful to have some of this distilled into some key takeaways or top tips. Towards the end there's also a lot of general writing advice which I wasn't looking for and while I'm sure it is useful to many, it felt like there's a separate "how to" book there. Overall, a solid read.

2.0 out of 5 stars While the book has spme interesting pointers on Show Don't ..., 2 Feb. 2015

While the book has spme interesting pointers on Show Don't Tell ... it is unbelievably repetitive and I found it a slog to finish to be honest. I think the key learning points could have been put acroos in a book half the size. The rest, in my opinion, was just padding.
