Following helpful and useful introductory chapters, the book becomes even more useful when the Thesaurus is used. This is more than your average Thesaurus, providing an in depth exploration of a word and its use in writing fiction. It provides a definition of the word, similar flaws, possible causes, associated behaviours and attitudes, associated thoughts, associated emotions, positive aspects, negative aspects, examples from film, overcoming this trait as a major flaw, and traits in supporting characters that cause conflict.
As a tool for writers this book cannot be faulted, and is in fact outstanding. This is a not to be missed book for all writers, whether new or established. Buy it now you will not regret it.
It is well worth reading the website, Writers helping Writers, the book muse. A great aid for all writers.
Can't thank the Authors enough.
It lists all the negative traits with an explanation of internal and external reactions, the types of people that may exhibit these reactions, the downfalls of these traits and gives examples of films in which those types of characters have been portrayed successfully.

This is highly useful for character development. Even gives ideas for plot by listing different situations that could produce the negative trait.Published 2 months ago by fivefingersfivetoes
This is not a thesaurus. This is a book written about bog-standard antogonists and popular negative characters in a narrative. Again, this is not a thesaurus as it claims to be.Published 2 months ago by David Tickner

Very useful for writing prompts and helping to create depth. Buy with the positive trait thesaurus.Published 6 months ago by Demmy
Very useful aid for aspiring writers. The only reason I gave it a four stars rather than five is because one of the negative traits I wanted for my character was missing. Read morePublished 7 months ago by JMP
