This review is from: How NOT to Write a Novel: 200 Mistakes to avoid at All Costs if You Ever Want to Get Published (Paperback)
Although it's good, and lot wittier than most books about writing, it's not that good. One of the things which bothers me is that a fair old few of the mistakes featured in this book are ones that I recognise from bestselling books, which goes to show you can still get published without while making a few bum notes. I would say it's better for someone who's already done a bit of writing before, rather than someone starting out, bcause it could frighten the beginner into thinking they can do nothing right. You have to discover these mistakes for yourself.
