2.0 out of 5 stars The only thing 'dazzling' about this book....
By Honest Reviews on January 11, 2019
Quite honestly, the only thing I found 'dazzling' about this book was the title. I've read other books about writing Dynamic Dialogue and feel that this book pales in comparison. The book is more examples of dialogue from other books, movies, etc., than anything. For $12, I just don't feel like I got anything from the book. It wasn't worth the price for page after page of other people's dialogue scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The surest way to make your book more engaging
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 4, 2019
As an author, I am always being asked tips on writing: 'How to make a story more gripping?', 'How to keep the reader on the edge of their seats? 'How to write prose that flows?'

I advise those people, often when I'm taking a coffee break from writing my stuff, to include and improve their story's dialogue.

Jame Scott Bell's book 'How to write dazzling dialogue- the fastest way to improve any manuscript' is an excellent and enjoyable book that will improve ANY writers dialogue skills.

Not only do I recommend it to those people who ask me for advice, but I also dip in and out of the book for some helpful reminders on spicing up the 'chat' in my writing.

I have turned the corners on many of the pages (even though I was taught as a child NEVER TO DO THIS), but one page, in particular, keeps me coming back: page 84, 'Don't Forget about silene,'. Brilliant. I applied this trick immediately in my own novel.
