Revealing the 15 "beats" (plot points) that comprise a successful story - from the opening image to the finale - this audiobook lays out the 10 story genres ("Monster in the House"; "Whydunit"; "Dude with a Problem") alongside quirky, original insights ("Save the Cat"; "Shard of Glass") to help novelists craft a plot that will captivate - and a novel that will sell.

    Horrible voice: author reading herself, real shame

    The written book is okay. Yes, it is formulaic, despite the author constantly insisting it would not be. Of course, it is: the 'safe the cat' principle is based on analyzing Hollywood blockbusters. Anybody seriously saying those are not formulaic? Nevertheless, the written book does include some gems. Enough to make it worth 3, maybe even 4 stars, depending on what you are trying to learn from it.

    Jessica Brody's intonation is horrible, however. Why do some authors insist on narrating their books themselves? It's a profession. Very few authors happen to be brilliant voice artists. Jessica Brody certainly is not. Her intonation is heavily influenced by Valley Talk. Rising pitch at the end of (parts of) sentences, even though there is no question in sight? Check! Nasal, grating voice? Check! Fingernails on chalkbaord effect? Check!

    She's from Massachusets, not California. Yes, I actually checked, because I was curious why she talks like this. Proud Vally Girl nevertheless. That's fine for her, but please ... please get someone else to read your book for (international) audiences. You are destroying what could have been a decent audiobook.

    PS: maybe US audiences are more forgiving, as in the US, people are used to hearing these types of voices 'in real life' all the time. For an international audience, though, this is a huge let down.

    As audiobooks heavily depend on vocal presentation, 2 stars is already generous. Such a shame.

    Story: 3-4 stars
