45 Master Characters ~ book review

For those of you who aren't interested in writing, this review will probably be meaningless to you. For those of you who are, keep your ears and eyes and mind open.

This book uses mythical archetypes (based on Greek gods and goddesses) that will help a writer form strong characters who aren't stereotypical. The last section of the book focuses on the differences between a male and a female journey, which I found very helpful for plotting out one of my story ideas.

45 Master Characters is a very helpful book and I recommend it highly to anyone who dabbles in writing. One word of caution, though - this book is secular, and therefore sometimes mentions things like which character type would be most like to have an affair, etc.

Alyianna's review: 9 out of 10
