This review is from: On Writing (Paperback)
King presents us with his autobiography which kept me turning the pages with his well-honed style. It was, at times, the ‘typical’ celebrity story of drug and alcohol abuse which is a little well-worn and, for me, a little boring, yet his crafted style kept me going through these patches. For me, this is sufficient lesson for ‘would-be’ writers but this book is two books in one. King goes on to deliver what he calls his ‘thesis’ on writing which I imagine would be a good basic primer for those interested in writing themselves. As a fan of non-fiction, I enjoyed the insights into the writer’s craft.
