I loved the fascinating accounts of King’s early writing days at school and the continuing story of how he rose to fame and fortune.
His insights into writing styles are tremendous advice for anybody who writes at whatever level and in all genres. It would be foolish to try to copy his style as I believe that we should all find our own voice, yet there is much wisdom to be had in this book.
The only topic that I slightly disagree with Stephen King on is the use of adverbs. Whilst I agree that they are over-used and often unnecessary, I would say that they are occasionally appropriate and can add some colour and substance. There is no need to eliminate them completely.
Great book! Every writer should read it.
