    1. I just finished reading this book For writers who want to create great conflict with a three dimensional villain, I would recommend adding this book to your craft shelves From defining the dark side, to twisting light into dark and vice versa from identifying villains such as tricksters and rakes and temptresses to pimps and dictators and beyond Add in some story tools and writing exercises, and you have a keeper for your shelves And that doesn t even count the biblography and glossary.A full bl [...]


    2. This isn t really a sit down and read book On the other hand, it s not really a reference manual, either The organization of its ideas is a little strange.You could probably save some money on this one by just remembering that your bad guy has a story, too that he s not just some faceless force for your hero to battle I probably bought this one because I was looking for information on how to create better villains the antagonist of Found One Apocalypse is kind of faceless but I m not sure I got [...]


    3. Pamela Jaye Smith is one of the creative community s foremost writers on mythology, ancient wisdoms, and how they affect character, narrative and storytelling systems, and her writing gets across esoterically intimidating concepts with grace, wit and utmost clarity This book, sprawling yet detailed, tackles the myriad range of negative forces and antagonistic characters that can spice up your drama and bedevil the days of your hero It takes on the internal struggles that threaten your hero s san [...]


    4. What I was hoping for was a series of concrete tips, or, better yet, a coherent approach, that could help me improve my villains and antagonists What I got was a high proportion of listicle like examples to actual advice, with a bonus serving of the author s personal spiritual perspective I started skimming, and eventually decided there was too little wheat among the chaff.


    5. This was an awesome book, and while I knew a lot of it, the clear language and concise way the author put it all together still helped me I would recommend it to any aspiring author, though I hope they d read it earlier on their path than I did.


    6. Wonderful book A little hard to digest all at once but a great reference Story ideas for writers Examples of books and movies I ve not seen or read Conflicts lies at the heart of all effective stories.


    7. For me, this book worked as an idea prod than help making my bad guys bad which is what I d expected reading the cover blurb I did add half a dozen possibilities to my Future Writing Projects folder while reading this, though, and that s pretty good.


    8. Great book to help authors create villains Find inspiration to give fictional characters lots of oomph to their personality.


    9. A good book for help brainstorming, but it s not a sit down, read through, and get inspired book But if you re trying to come up with or flesh out your villain, it s a worthwhile book.
