really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, writing-development

As promised you don't need to have read the original Save The Cat book to understand/learn from this one (I haven't read the first yet, though I do intend to).
The break downs of the 'genres' are well thought out and give you a deeper understanding of what makes that type of story work, and having the plots of multiple films in each of the genres broken down helps you really absorb the information. It was frustrating however that in these plot break downs the characters were often referred to by the actor name which left me confused frequently. That's my only complaint though.
A good book for writers of any kind
