Reading felt robotic, info is great!

Goes by quick! Tons of great info & pointers. Brushes on a ton, details where needed.

Great, but the reader could easily be mistaken for a Text-to-Speech application.

Buy it.

I've listened to many books on writing. If you know how to write, and have a good story... get this. it'll take you to the next level.

Ripoff

Simplistic information that sounds like it was sourced from wikipedia. no way this was written by THAT George Lucas.

FOR IDIOTS ONLY

One star rating. This is for complete amateurs and is so dumbed-down it's insulting. Just to rub salt in the wound, the reading is totally robotic.

Goes right to the point

I love it. Finished the book in just one morning while sitting at work. I will definitely put into practice what I was taught in this book. It might be nice to also have some visual examples that mentioned. However now at least I have some terminology that I can google more examples on. Very informative highly recommend especially to those who know nothing about writing a screenplay

Wow

I've read tons of books on writing and this is by far the most practical for how to actually get it done

Good overview- explains screenwriting in detail

Great advice especially for a thriller writer moving to screenwriting. Shows a completely different way to think, imagine and write. I'll listen to this audio many times. Thank you.

Unlistenable

What made the experience of listening to Screenwriting for Anyone the most enjoyable?

The book itself feels like it's written for beginners, which is great because it goes all the way down to how to handle a pitch meeting with a producer.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kelly Rhodes’s performances?

No. Never. Never ever. I'm am 99% convinced (not joking here) that this is a machine that reads text. Imagine the Google Maps voice or Siri reading a book to you. It's LITERALLY that robotic. I found it unlistenable.

Any additional comments?

Consider the book. Don't get this audiobook.

Basically Text-to-Speech

Haven't even finished it yet. Narration is horrible and very distracting, it genuinely sounds like a text-to-speech function is performing. I'm horrified that this made it through a publisher, is there no quality assurance?

Does have some good points but nothing great.

I read everything I can on movies, movie making, director memoirs, etc, and while this book did provide some tips on organization, I would definitely recommend reading other materials on the subject.

This is more of a "This is what you need to buy and how to arrange it" sort of book. If you want advice on story, story pivots, etc, that would be something to look for elsewhere.
