The Thrill of the Creative!

You don't need to be a screenwriter to find Blake Snyder's "Save the Cat! Strikes Back" informative. As a matter of fact, it's downright essential for anyone crafting a meaningful story. I skipped a bit of the formula: the forty scenes, for example, but everything else is golden for a writer of fiction.
You start with getting the essence down with the pitch and the logline, translation: What's your story about so you can hone in on it and not waste time, energy, and scatter your thoughts. Think about the 180 that your hero is going to be doing, first and last scene, how s/he's going to be growing, follow the spine of the story and don't deviate from it.
Blake gives pithy terminology that just sticks with you, and it's so helpful, not to mention thrilling as he's so positive and exciting as he relays the information to you. He really believes and has followed all that he says. It's all structure, but is still so creative, it just makes you want to get out there and write your own story. And it's not about plugging in this piece here, that piece there. It's about developing your character and watching him transform into something different, something brilliant.
The best thing about the book? When you're stuck is when the magic can really happen. Snyder actually made made me relax with what I had been viewing as insurmountable roadblocks. He made me see the fun that can be had with questions; some hard, most simple and off the wall, opening new worlds of thought and possibilities.
MacLeod Andrews narrates this with a lively intensity and much good humor; he's a joy to listen to. He's very familiar with the material, and he reads it as though he wrote it himself. I'm so happy I used a credit on this.
Inspiring!

A great addition to my library

Where does Save the Cat! Strikes Back rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Blake Snyder of course knew his stuff and Macleod Andrews is the man when it comes to the narration. I just hope that the other two books are in production.

Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have and he's top notch with everything that he does. I especially love the reckoning series.

Any additional comments?

This is a great way to learn or be refreshed with the STC method. It continues to surprise me how accurate it is.

70 % FILLER!! This book has so much filler.

the actual hard points in the book can fit into just a few pages, the rest is all anecdotes and tired jokes.

Perfection

Very easy to listen to and follow along with, and the information in the book is invaluable for anyone hoping to pursue a career as a screenwriter. The tone of the author along with the enthusiasm of the reader made it a very enjoyable listen. Would highly recommend!

A great book for writers

Although Save the Cat is targeted to screenwriters, it's also helpful for anyone writing a novel, play or similar work of fiction. You must be open to the idea of using a somewhat standardized structure (e.g. a three act format) and if you are open to this you can learn a lot about how to increase tension, emotional appeal etc. This was very helpful to me. It's also a fun, easy listen.

A great book and a great performance

Loved it. I'm a screenwriter with a film in the can and there was still plenty to learn here.

Meh

Would you try another book from Blake Snyder and/or MacLeod Andrews?

I love Save the Cat, and this version is helpful too, but not as an audio book. Perhaps it's just me, but books like these really need to be read to get the message across. Lines must he highlighted and gone back to to properly understand.

Any additional comments?

This book in the Save the Cat series is NOT a necessity, as others are.

Best for the masses

Great performance on behalf of the speaker, to give life to the words of this insightful author. A great follow up to any Save The Cat book, knowing the back half of the journey of writing is helpful. Snyder teaches through life illustration the true struggle of writing, screenplays or fiction. Pick up this audible if you are a writer, amateur or professional, and give yourself a level of expectation when you finish your draft. Knowing whats next is important, and knowing whats coming, is important too.
