Too much like a Meyers Brigg test
I thought Gerke's book, The First 50 Pages, was one of the best books on writing I've read, and I've read a lot of them. So, when I got into Plot versus Character, I was sorely disappointed. The beginning of the book goes on and on describing the different character types that are consistent with the permutations of the Meyers Briggs personality test. While I thought his interpretations of the test were correct, he didn't do a good job of showing the process a writer should use to determine what personalities a character should have to make your book interesting or fit in with the plot and voice of your writing. I rarely stop reading a book but I stopped reading this one at about page 50. Stick with his awesome (and sometimes funny ) book, the First 50 Pages.Was this review helpful?
