A good purchase. Succinct and packed with ideas. However, I bought the kindle version and the publishers don't seem to understand e-publishing! It has the tiniest font you can imagine and I had to increase my kindle font size by three to read it; then if I read any of my other books I have to decrease it again. What a pain! Didn't they test it first? Other than that it's a good book.

As someone who is writing her first novel, I have struggled to be creative enough to keep my plot flowing. This book is full of tons of really good ideas for 'stealing' (actually adapting) ideas from existing storylines. Highly recommended.

This is well worth a look. As it is accepted that there are only so many plots anyway, the theme is not new, yet this title covers the subject thoroughly and entertainingly.

Some excellent ideas for using your own slant on existing plot ideas to generate completely new scenarios. I know there are many other books which tell you there's only a finite number of plots, but this is so much more.

Given Christoper Booker's theory of Seven Basic Plots, it is difficult to tell a story that hasn't already been told. However, this book goes a little further in suggesting how existing stories can be adaped into new works. All writers need to be conscious of plagiarism, but basic ideas cannot be copyrighted and so a writer casting round for inspiration can start off with an unoriginal idea and develop the idea into his/her own story by creating different details. Very helpful.
