Hey Guys! It is Max here and I will be doing a review for ‘IT’ by Stephen King today! I bet most or maybe all of you know who Stephen King is, unless you live under a rock. So, if you really have no idea who Stephen King is, he is the author of numerous […]
Meredith Gibraltar writes about the book “The Elements of Style” written by William Strunk Jr. and E. B. White. It is an excellent reference book for English grammar and style.
The book goes over elementary rules of usage with a few specific examples. Then it covers rules of composition and a few examples of form. Then it lists words and expressions often misused. And finally it lists reminders about style.
I believe this book to be a jewel among writing style and grammar books. It is a very good read and an excellent reference. It is listed in my Recommended Books page.
Meredith Gibraltar is reading “On Writing” by Stephen King. It is an excellent book about being a writer.
The book begins with stories about Stephen King’s life and how he progressed as a writer. It is well written and interesting. The next part of the book is about the tools you use to write. That would be vocabulary, grammar and style. Then he talks about strong sentences and paragraphs.
He recommends a book called “The Elements of Style” by Strunk and White.
He goes further to say that books consist of narration, description and dialogue. Narration is the progression from point A to point B and at the end to point Z. Description creates a reality for the reader. Dialogue brings the characters alive.
I could not put the book down and read half of it yesterday. I should be finishing it up today. It is a must read if you are a writer. I know that Stephen King is famous but have never read his books because I don’t like horror. But the ease with which I read the book shows that he is an excellent writer.
I would rate this book 5/5. Cheers!
