did not like it
bookshelves: couldn-t-finish-it

I wanted to like this one, but I just didn't. I've found that if I like someone's non-fiction (like Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird), then I don't like her fiction very much. I think the reverse is true here, since I like Berg's fiction. As an aspiring writer I really wanted to like this book and find it helpful, but it was almost too condescending. I didn't like the tone and ended up returning it to the library unfinished.
