Purchased for a college course. Arrived in good condition with very slight exterior damage. The pages are incredibly thin and tear fairly easily. Found myself reading content that wasn't assigned in class, and I didn't sell this one back because I liked the short stories.

It's a text book, so many of the normal review questions are hard to answer 2 weeks into the class. Whatever the case, this is simply a compilation assembled to illustrate points the authors are trying to make regarding various facets of fiction writing.
It's horribly overpriced for such a flimsy paperback. I paid $51 for a ratty used copy, becaused $115 MSRP for a new one is highway robbery. Even "discounted" to just under $90 is ridiculous. Frankly, $51 was too much. This is at best a $35 to $40 book (new) outside the rarified air of academia. If they are going to charge so much perhaps a more durable binding and better paper might be worth considering. Of course they would probably want $200 plus for it then. Yeah, I know, most college books are overpriced, it's the nature of the business. This one seems to have the least value for money of any texts I've purchased so far. $80 for a paperback sucks a bit less if it actually seems like they used quality materials. I would point out that there are good quality hardbound texts for similar money.

The new edition is selling for a hundred plus. I purchased this book for a fiction course I'm taking and it has everything I need for a fraction of the price.

Great book for short stories and used for my lit class. Very helpful info for class.
I bought this book because it was a school requirement for one of my general Ed classes. The book was okay, but I didn't keep it in my library after the class was over, so that's got to say something.
