4.0 von 5 Sternen Cheesy title for a very useful and informative book
Tobias does a good job breaking down common plotlines into their respective patterns. His book provides a method to analyze storylines and identify their basic components, making it easier to understand the underlying structure of the novel or screenplay.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This book needs help!
What can be said in a few sentences, he takes an entire chapter to say. His examples are unimaginative and boring. He is arrogant in some chapters and seems to think he is the only person with the answers for your literary dilemas! If you're curious, check it out from the library so you don't end up kicking yourself for buying this book. One book I would highly...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Cheesy title for a very useful and informative book, 22. Juni 2000
Tobias does a good job breaking down common plotlines into their respective patterns. His book provides a method to analyze storylines and identify their basic components, making it easier to understand the underlying structure of the novel or screenplay. He illustrates his ideas through well-chosen examples from the classics as well as modern day literature.
Tobias has taken the time to find out what many great authors said and wrote about the nature of their craft. My favorite is a quote attributed to Somerset Maugham: "There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately no one knows what they are." This book attempts to identify the rules for story construction in a way that many aspiring novelists will find useful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Basic Info, 6. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This is a wonderful book. Not too complex, and handy as all get-out. Readers have certain expectations, and this helps you make sure you've covered all your bases. The checklist at the end of each plot description is useful in helping the writer see if most of the possibilities have been explored. Don't we all want to use our characters and situations to their best advantage? This book can help you!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great help for a beginner writer, 28. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
As a begginer writer, I love this book. Very easy to read and urderstand. Besides the explanation of the 20 plots, the first chapters about plot and structure in general are great.
It is helping me alot with my second novel.

He is arrogant in some chapters and seems to think he is the only person with the answers for your literary dilemas! If you're curious, check it out from the library so you don't end up kicking yourself for buying this book. One book I would highly reccommend is "Writing Fiction." It's FULL of writing advice from great novelists like Ray Bradbury, Mark Twain and many others. I'm sorry but I don't know the author's name.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The only how-to-write book you need, 27. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I had been trying to pen my first novel for eleven years, but, in spite of all my reading of other writing books as well as immersing myself in the kind of fiction I was trying to create, I didn't have the critical acumen to define how to do it. This book tells you what you want to do, how to achieve it, and why it's important. Tobias does this with clarity, authority, grace, and humor. This book gave me everything I needed to write my book. Thank you, Ron!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book for the plot-challenged., 25. April 2000

I see that some reviewers find Tobia's stuff obvious. I don't; it's exactly what I need. Plot is my bete noir. I have no trouble with style, and characterization and dialogue are fun, but plot--argh! So who cares if Tobias could have used some line-editing? He knows what I want to find out, and he explains it in a way I can understand. His image of plot as process rather than skeleton was enormously helpful. Bless him!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great handbook for Plot making/revising, 7. Juni 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Tobias includes Aristotles three parts of the play, then expands this into a list of "the lowest common plot denominators." Writers may wish to change these into questions to revise their own story's plot. It helps to have a list of plots sometimes to jar the creative flow, but nothing can compare to just sitting down and writing

1.0 von 5 Sternen Look elsewhere for help with plotting, 27. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This author's style is arrogant and condescending toward certain genres. Overall, I found the book to be a rather boring read, and it hasn't helped me much in my efforts to create better plots in my fiction. Mostly, the author spends a lot of time stating the obvious.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Homespun wisdom of the most unreadable kind, 23. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I deeply regret having bought this. It is painful to findoneself reading a book that purports to give advice on how to writewhen it is written so badly! Wince-worthy banalities in phoney homespun style. If you want a useful book in a similar vein from Amazon, try STEIN ON WRITING instead. He, at least, can write, and write well. If you want a doorstop or kindling, there are cheaper alternatives.
