Book Review — Characters and Viewpoint by Orson Scott Card

Characters & Viewpoint (Elements of Fiction Writing)Characters & Viewpoint by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. This was the first I read in the Writer’s Digest series, and the rest are eagerly awaiting me in my library.

If you’re a writer, this is a must-read. Orson Scott Card explains key storytelling concepts so naturally that this is an absolute pleasure to read for its own sake.

I would recommend this even if you have no intentions of writing your own prose. You will have a better appreciation and understanding of narrative and characters after this book, and your reading will never be the same.
