I will be taking Mr. Mckee's lecture in LA in a few weeks and I am really looking forward to it. Now that I have listened to his book in his voice, I am even more excited about the lecture. This audio was excellent. He truly is the world expert in screenplay writing. The concepts and techniques that he mentions in the audio are crisp and exciting and I now feel more prepared, confident and skilled to begin my own screenplay. I am expecting the book soon and will review the concepts and graphs before the lecture, and I will also listen to the audio again, because I think it's worth at least one more listening session.
I thought that this would be a full reading of the actual book, since the title read "unabridged". However, it turned out to be a spoon-fed narration of the major points of the book. I did not mind the corny French accents that were used whenever Tocqueville or other French individuals were supposed to be speaking, but I found them unneccessary and somewhat annoying. Overall, I give the title 3 stars, but it's hardly an "unabridged" reading of the book.
