Publishing veterans and best-selling authors Zach Bohannon and J. Thorn share their proven system for developing a plan that will bridge the gap between a collection of random notes and a cohesive first draft.

This comprehensive book will teach you the foundations of fiction: Plot, Structure, Genre, Theme, Character, and World.

Shockingly Bad on Multiple Levels

The audio book is 3 hours and 13 minutes long. I am currently 2 hours and 30 minutes into it and I still have NO idea what the "Three Story Method" is. None. Not even an inkling. And it's not that the authors have gone to great lengths to describe it, but I'm simply too dense to understand it. No, they haven't even TRIED to explain it. Don't you think an overview of this "system" should be mentioned early on so we have some inkling where this book is going? Instead, the book meanders on and on, simply quoting other sources ad nauseam. It has no path, no structure, no coherence whatsoever. It's as though the authors said, "Let's just cram a bunch of quotes into a book and then give it a tantalizing title that has nothing to do whatsoever with the content." And to make matters worse, the production quality is just as painful. It's read by one of the authors himself on a cheap microphone that is constantly clipping. And then no post-production was used, as he gives a long pause and then big gasp for air between every... single... sentence. Hard pass.
