Review: On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let’s make this clear: Stephen King is one of the greatest living novelists. Anyone overlooking him should lower their nose and relax their ass. It’s not just about gore, ghosts, and sex—it’s about life—and King has mastered the storytelling thereof. His narration is rich and his dialogue real.

As for ‘On Writing’, King delivers a quick-paced autobiography, followed by admonition to his fellow writers, beginners and seasoned alike. Anyone interested in either King or the craft of writing should have this on their shelf, especially for the latter. There are plenty of writing books in the sea, several of which are pretentious stinkers, but this one is a delicious catch.
