it was amazing
bookshelves: 2014

"Many of the techniques for expressing the dramatic code in a powerful and original story are in this book. If you are wise, you will never stop studying and practicing them." Amen. A lot of what Truby writes is available in other books, but it's always good to get a fresh perspective. In comparison with other books on storytelling, this one contains little in the way of filler material (I'm thinking of a lot of the Writer's Digest books). What it does contain in abundance are brilliant examples of how all of the steps play out in familiar films and novels.
