4.0 out of 5 stars Loved his ideas - very inspiring. Bit short., 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the author's message. I love what he says about writing without an outline, and how to manage that and make it work well. It's really refreshing - so different to what most books say. And it makes me want to write! I write already, but it makes me feel freer and more childlike about the love of creating stories. I think that childlike state is hugely helpful to creativity.
I've read many, many books about writing novels, and this one stands out. I'm in the middle of writing my second novel, which didn't want to be plotted in advance, and I think this will be my bible.
I would give this 4 stars, but it's a bit short for the price in paperback. The book itself ends and then there are some taster chapters from some of his other books.


Ms Cupcake: The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town
Ms Cupcake: The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town
by Mellissa Morgan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant how-to on making vegan cakes, 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fabulous book. This is the first book which has helped me successfully bake vegan cakes (without eggs). Baking without eggs is harder, or at least different from the process I knew so well. It really explains how it's different when baking without eggs and how you compensate for that. I've made quite a few successful cakes from this book and recommend it highly :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting insight into Syria right now, 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting for getting a flavour of what Syria is like to travel in as a journalist these days. However, once I'd read half of it I felt there wasn't more to learn. It's a bit dull in places, and I got confused between all the different journalists and other kidnap victims that he writes about.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unflattering and cheap-seeming, 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very unflattering, so I returned it. Instead of clinging attractively around the bust area it just fell from the top like a tent, but the top part was not too big for me so I think I'd ordered the right size. Disappointing :(

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible story and pathetic heroine, 11 May 2016
This review is from: Behind Closed Doors (Paperback)
I read this for my book group and didn't like it. The heroine is pathetic and I would have tried much harder to get out of her situation, so I was constantly irritated by her lack of courage and the actions of her husband, who is abusive. One thing I will say for it is that it's gripping, but pretty depressing too IMO. I nearly gave up half way through because I found it so distasteful.

I'm only a quarter way in and it's already changed how I feel about anger, and helped already. I intend to finish it, though.

3.0 out of 5 stars I found the detachable hood a bit annoying., 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely jacket, except the inside was more of a yellowy lime than a really lime green. Very big for its size. I found the detachable hood a bit annoying.
