it was amazing

Wow! I am in awe! This book was so amazing and every aspect was good! The memoir was so interesting and it was great to see how he came up with his story ideas. I haven't read his books, but this one made me want to. His writing was awesome and funny and, though it isn't my interest, the book made me think I could be a writer if I put forth the effort. It made me feel better about my own ambitions as well. A lot of his advice about writing made a lot of sense and opened my eyes. It got me thinking about other authors and what seen them do in their novels. I love it when books make me think! Overall this book is compelling and informative and I would recommend it to anyone. Literally anyone. It's a fantastic read and gives great advice in many aspects of life and writing.
