    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If any of my friends develop an interest in writing novels or screenplays, I would definitely recommend this audio book. I read Christopher Vogler's book "The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers". Getting to hear him share some of that information was a good experience. I found Michael Hauge's information to be interesting and helpful too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hauge and Vogler agree on some matters but not others. The contrasting opinions add a valuable dimension.


    What does Michael Hauge and Christopher Vogler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    "Writing is structure,” William Goldman said, but too often aspiring writers plunge into their work without grasping this fundamental principle. Story structure is one of the most important concepts for a writer to understand - and ironically, one of the least frequently taught. In this book, New York Times best-selling author William Bernhardt explains the elements that make stories work, using examples spanning from Gilgamesh to The Hunger Games.

    All fiction is character-driven, according to William Bernhardt, despite what you might have heard elsewhere. If your characters don’t interest readers, even the most exciting plots will fail. “Action is character,” Aristotle wrote, but what does that mean, and how can you use that fundamental principle to create dynamic fiction that will captivate readers? This audiobook explains the relationship between character and plot, and how the perfect melding of the two produces a mesmerizing story.

    If you could sum up Creating Character: Bringing Your Story to Life in three words, what would they be?

    Bernhardt's lessons and advice for the novelist or aspiring novelist are excellent. His approach is witty, engaging and concise.


    Which character – as performed by William Bernhardt – was your favorite?

    William Bernhardt is giving voice to his nonfiction book so there are no characters.
