In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing listeners with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.

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 has made my writing, and my confidence in writing, soar like no other book or teaching has. I cannot recommend it more highly to any screen, theater, or fiction writer.
I'm so glad Mr. McKee performed the audiobook himself. He has a wonderful voice, and it just feels more tangible coming directly from his mouth.
This is a great work if you have interests in narrative and story. The design, forces and everything that makes a great work of art, as seen through centuries of wisdom.
