An easy, quick read that provides more inspiration than any concrete tips on writing. Very interesting to get some perspective from one of the great writers.

Read it in a day, really in an evening.

It was decent, reads quickly enough, although there is some repetition since it's more a remix of things--a compilation of other sources if you would. Read it fast enough and things will start to echo.

Got a couple decent quotes from it.
Buzz Borders
Although it is only a collection of different fragments of his thoughts on writing an character, it is really hard to put down. It is amazing how he is able to come through time and again with solid information that any writer, of any genre, could find valuable.

Fitzgerald was a genius. This was a pleasure to read. It is short, wise, and nearly perfect.
