The book read quickly and the first impression it leaves-- ease of understanding. Imran's style is conversational and his examples to each point are clear and relevant. I found the book to be very engaging.
Beyond general points, let's get to the main point of this book-- how does it function as writing instruction?
My answer is it depends. This book is geared towards and will be mainly useful for beginners. If you are thinking of writing a novel or perhaps you've attempted one in the past without much success, this book is for you.
Imran covers almost every conceivable angle of the process of writing, editing and publishing a novel. The book delves into the basics techniques needed to finish a book as well as a section describing publishing options once you finish and edit your manuscript. Each section leaves you with the basic knowledge for the major areas of being a writer-- the nuts and bolts of 'how to be an author'.
The major question I have to ask you is this--- Do you want to learn how to be a novelist? Have you always dreamed of writing books but had no idea where to start or are perhaps intimidated by the other instruction you have seen? If so, this is the book to choose. The simplicity of Imran's breakdown of the writing process will make it quite easy for the beginner to translate into actionable progress towards creating fiction.
In closing, I recommend this book to aspiring writers. Don't keep putting off the dream of creating your own fictional world. Buy this book and get started. This book will help you begin the journey to becoming a writer.
