Love a good science fiction book!
If you want to understand the structure of a movie this is the first step. A abriged version from the autor of his bestseller so it is fast and fun. If you read it with lot of movies the experience becomes even more fun! I'm watching all the classic movies again just to have a better view of their amazing stories and even more amazing storytellers!
read the damn book. listen to it if you can't read it. do this and discover a love for your ideas as they come to life before your eyes.
The author explains screen writing concepts with clear examples. Now I know why Nollywood films bore me to death!
I would listen to Story again. McKee speaks volumes of sense about the principles of writing for the big screen. Any writer can benefit from being reminded of these periodically by such an expert as this.
His worldly knowledge of the subject.
informative, insightful, leading
It was a conversational tone, which was like talking to the teacher.....
The audiobook was purchase in addition to the regular book because it was affordable, the book is clear and open as far as the writing technique is concerned. I think it wood be a great addition to any library
The information is fantastic but, Robert McKee's reading voice is a bit of a snooze. I found myself easily distracted like I was in an Earth Science lecture during my freshman year of college.
This book affected me deeply. A book for story and a book for life. It will not only help you learn how to develop your story but it will affect your relationships with others. For example, character is shown by what people do when they are under pressure. The principles taught will not only help you develop your story in a compelling way , but help you live your life more fully and more meaningful.
For my convenience I own both audio & kindle versions of this book. For me they fill different functions. I don' t think either is better, it's really a matter of the reader's needs & preference. However, I find that the audio version of the book allows more versatility & flexibility than the kindle version. For example, I can listen as I drive or do dishes, an impossibility with any version I'd have to read myself.
The generous amount of usable information the author shared.
Hearing the book read by the author Robert McKee, is literally getting the story directly from the source exactly as he intended it should be provided for his audience.
I think I will apply the solutions Mr. McKee shared in the section entitled "Problems & Solutions."
If you are serious about writing, this is a book you'll want among your reference books.
