Wie man einen verdammt guten Roman schreibt.

Das Buch ist unterhaltsam zu lesen, es ist jedoch schwierig, den Nutzen zu
bewerten. Grundsätzlich würde ich das Buch empfehlen, weil es unterhaltend

Zufriedenheit in Grenzen hält.
Wenn guy ernsthaft daran interessiert ist, seinen Schreibstil zu verbessern,
wird guy von diesem Buch vermutlich enttäuscht sein.
Wenn guy vor allem daran interessiert ist, wie guy sich einen Bestseller-Plot
für eine Geschichte ausdenkt, ist guy hiermit vermutlich intestine bedient.
