Would you listen to Complete Creative Writing Course again? Why?
I like the examples. A reviewer says that they didn't like the different voices, but I think if he or she kept listening they would find the other voice intriguing. It was like listening to a radio show with different actors playing a part. I like how the narrators drew me in with examples on how to write. I have so many questions and this audio has answered many of those questions.
What other book might you compare Complete Creative Writing Course to and why?
Sol Stein's On writing comes to mind, but I actually think this audio is better.
Which scene was your favorite?
All of them.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The Tree of Learning
Any additional comments?
If you like Sol Stein's audio, you'll this one as well.

Painful from beginning to when I stopped.
I tried with this one. I really did. The multiple narrators was distracting, there was nothing of value in the first 3 hours. It got to the point that I was speeding up the book just to finish it faster. I couldn't suffer through till the end.
Different voices distract
What would have made Complete Creative Writing Course better?
I would have had one person doing the reading. Having 4 people read one line each, one right after the other, is very difficult to follow.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Not sure yet.
How could the performance have been better?
Again, multi people readers needs to be handled well. It works if each person reads a section, but these ones seemed o be trying to represent different thoughts.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I didn't get past the first 40 min. It was disappointing.
