A great idea for a book, but there are so many confusing cross-references, I have to reread the instructions on how to use the book every time I pick it up. Situation A can lead to 5 or 6 cross references, all those have cross references another 5 or 6 times. Everything is numbered with sublettering and sub-sublettering that I find it hard to keep track of the ideas I want to remember. Though I have used the book to help with plots for my novel. Maybe the CD version would be easier to work with.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Plots Unlimited is a classic resource for writers. The trick is to use the story suggestions in Plots Unlimited as a starting point for your own imagination. For me, the book works best when I use my imagination to alter the literal situations in the book (e.g., a 'car' can become a spaceship, a married couple can be teenagers 'going steady', etc.) The story suggestions can be used for writing in any genre, because they each deal with basic human relationships. If you are a writer, Plots Unlimited is definately a good book to have on the shelf...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
