extraordinary book ... twenty-two detailed chapters ... a simple and easy-to-understand visualization of story structures
Leon Conrad is passionate about stories ... He effortlessly depicts the link between stories and life. His dedication ... is evident. Nobody can deny that the book is well-researched.
The way Conrad uses story structures to analyze poetic forms ... is admirable.
One of my favorite chapters in this book would be the one on tragedy ... Conrad includes three original stories in this section. Though short, the stories rang a bell for me. This is a testament to Conrad’s talent as an author. I would love to read some of his fiction stories.
... an enlightening read ... bound to teach you a lot about stories and life.
The thought-provoking illustrations by Jason Chuang add a special edge to this special book.
I highly recommend Leon Conrad’s book to writers and academics.
