    Description

    Tired of the hero's journey? Frustrated that funny, romantic, and comforting stories aren't taken seriously? Sad that the books and movies you love never seem to be critically acclaimed, even when they sell like crazy? 

    The heroine's journey is here to help.

    Multiple New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger presents a clear, concise analysis of the heroine's journey, how it differs from the hero's journey, and how you can use it to improve your writing and your life. Narrated by Starla Huchton. 

    In this book you'll learn:
     

    • How to spot the heroine's journey in popular books, movies, and the world around you. 
    • The source myths and basic characters, tropes, and archetypes of this narrative. 
    • A step-by-step break down of how to successfully write this journey. 

    What do Agatha Christie, JK Rowling, and Nora Roberts all have in common? They all write the heroine's journey. Read this book to learn all about it.  

    From Harry Potter to Twilight, from Wonder Woman to Star Wars, you'll never look at pop culture the same way again.

    With over a dozen New York Times and USA Today bestsellers, and over a million books in print, popular genre author and former archaeologist Gail Carriger brings her cheeky, comedic tone and over a decade of making her living as a fiction author to this fascinating look at one of the most popular yet neglected narratives of our time.  

    This is an excellent writing reference for genre fiction authors seeking to improve their craft or for readers and pop culture enthusiasts interested in understanding their own taste. It is the perfect counterpoint to The Hero with a Thousand Faces, not to mention Save the Cat, Women Who Run with the Wolves, and The Breakout Novelist.

    You're Amazing Gail!! ❤️

    I don't leave enough reviews, but your books are always amazing. This nonfiction book has taught me so much about why I like certain shows, movies, and books. It also explained why some movies, characters...etc make me cringe or honestly seem to hurt my soul. I especially loved your explanations of how storytellers shape culture. I am so excited to be armed with all this knowledge literally no one has EVER explained to me before! I had never heard of the Heroines journey before this 💔 Finally, although the intention may not have been to inspire readers to live the life of a Heroine, I am none the less inspired to do so ❤️. Thank you!!

    this book actually changed my life.

    this book has given me the words, to put into actuality the vague thoughts and feelings that I have been chewing on for *years*

    my life is changed. and I am going to stop feeling ashamed for preferring "trashy" romance novels.

    Great Content with unsatisfactory narration

    After hearing an interview with Gail Carriger about her book, The Heroine's Journey, I was very excited to purchase and listen to the audio version during my work commute. However, I was deeply disappointed by the slow, text-to-speech app sound of the narrator. Even when I set the speed to play the book at a faster speed, I found the voice performance unbearable. Ms. Carriger's book is excellent, and I suggest you buy a print version. I returned the book.

    Great book, unfortunate voice performance

    I love this book, but the audio narration was so stilted I thought it was a voice synthesizer. When I confirmed it was an actual person, I wondered why on earth she was imitating an voice synthesizer. The weird robot voice got in the way big time - it was an especially bad fit for this topic - but I got through it because the content was so good.

    The title put me off, but having read the book I now like not only the book, but the title as well.

    When I first heard about this book I was automatically opposed to/offended by it, as I didn’t like what I interpreted as the implication that a female person would by necessity have a separate and distinct journey from that of a male hero. Having now read the book, I am delighted to say that I could not possibly have been more wrong!
    It’s not about the sex or gender of the protagonist as we are used to thinking about it. It is instead about the lore, history, and writing and acknowledgment of my favorite kind of story.
    A story chassis that can be gloriously Applied to a character of any gender, to create the sort of warm, good feelings stories that are the majority, although not the sum total. of the books that I want to read and enjoy, over and over again, on an ongoing basis in my life.

    Thank you Gail Carriger. For not only writing many of my favorite fictional stories and characters, but also giving me one of the best lessons on how to write that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing!

    Horrible narration

    I have no idea what this book is about, the overly soft and slow narration made it impossible to listen to. I felt it was a commercial for something I, as a women, should want. But clearly I don’t. Have to return it.

    Very informative and useful

    Gail illuminates a whole new perspective on storytelling, the suppressed yet extremely popular and secretly ancient Heroine's Journey. As a reader and author both, I found the book interesting and extremely useful, and will listen to it again for certain.

    Color me intrigued

    I found the whole book fascinating, even when I disagreed. That was rare, however. I found that the ideas within were closer to some stories I wrote than I expected.

    If nothing else, it was worth it to me as an aspiring writer to listen to.

    The Narration is Awful

    I am unable to finish listening to this book, which is a shame the content is well written, and I fully intend to read a hardcopy version of the book.
    The narrator's voice/tone is pleasant enough but the stilted cadence is somehow worse than robotic. (I have used text to speech and it is easier to listen to than this narration.) I tried speeding the audio and it didn't help much. Odd pauses and stiff almost over-pronunciation of each word made this unlistenable for me.

    I'd recommend getting an ebook or hard copy version. Just not this audiobook.

    Excellent... someone who actually gets it right, a truly magnificent rarity!

    Being a male and writing most from the male-hero's journey perspective, I found this short work to be much more exhaustive and ultimately useful than any of my formal education.

    Even more-so I feel quite blessed this title was available on both Kindle and Audible. Lucky me! :-)

    Thank you.
