Das Buch hatte die Lesequalität einer sehr schlechten Verschwommenen Forokopie. Nach meinem Storno wurde es nicht am nächsten Tag und auch noch nicht jetzt nach riner Woche vom Paketdienst bei mir abgeholt. Zu erfahren, woran das liegt, gelingt mir nicht. Ich ginde dafür keine Möglichkeit de Kontaktierung von Amazon.

I bought the book not for private purposes but for a piece of work I had to write for school. Creative writing is an important hobby of mine and I was not sure what to think of someone telling you how to manage the process of writing - a creative process, after all.
But this book surprised me in a positive way. Partricia Highsmith only gives advices accoring the approach of writing and she never states any "rule" regarding how to create suspense fiction. And yes: that does help! Because if there were any clear assingnments, the whole project of writing wouldn't make sense anymore.
I enjoyed reading it, because I really felt like an author. Patricia Highsmith doesn't present herself as a teacher, no. She only has lotsof very good tipps for you!
For school tasks, the book can definitely be recommended.
Why not five stars? Well, in my opinion writing is no subject that can be taught. I think (and know) you can write (suspense fiction) without a guide. But if you want one: this book will help you! (Not only for detective stories, by the way.)
PS: Sorry for the language, English is not my mother tounge..

I read this book after experiencing a couple of Patricia Highsmith's Tom Ripley novels. Since I liked her mysteries so much I thought this book would provide interesting insite into the mind and technique of the author, which it did. In terms of revealing the brain child behind the Ripley books it was quite revealing.
ALthough I am not a professional writer of fiction, I found the advice in this book interesting and helpful because it was suplemented with real life examples. Highsmith fills this book with examples of what she did right and what she did wrong throughout her career. She explains the general--and fairly sensible--principles that guide her writing as well as the little details that can enhance or ruin a novel. If I were an aspiring author, I think I would derive useful and interesting information from this book.

Interessante Einblicke in die Arbeitsweise der Supense - Königing Patricia Highsmith, aus ihrer eigenen Feder. Sehr interessant nicht nur für Highsmith Fans

I always query these "how to write..." books, because everything they tell you is taken for granted by the most mediocre authors. This book is well written and everything in it seems very sensible and sound advice, but wouldn't it be better to be original and devise your own method of plotting, rather than writing to someone elses formula.
If you are completely clueless, by all means, this book is worth-your-while, but for the more serious 'authorial' hopefuls Ð try something of your own devising, it will be better in the end.
