    Every novelist dreams of it - writing the book that rockets to the top of the best-seller lists. Now, they can see how it's done, up close, in an audiobook by an agent who has sold manuscripts that turned into hits. Here Albert Zuckerman covers the essential elements of the blockbuster novel and shows writers how to put them to work in their books. Zuckerman covers the subject thoroughly, from creating outlines and building larger than life characters to injecting suspense and more.

    What disappointed you about Writing the Blockbuster Novel?

    The book was heavily dated, inexact and sweeping in its descriptions of writing techniques, and it leaned too much on lengthy examples without distilling from them the core of the craft.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No redeeming qualities, alas.


    Any additional comments?

    One wonders why audible does not instead produce the really good books on writing, such as Dwight Swains Techniques of the Selling Writer.
