Ain't She Sweet? Not exactly . . .

The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But fifteen years have passed, and life has taught Sugar Beth its toughest lessons. Now she's come home—broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

The people of Parrish don't believe in forgive and forget. When the Seawillows, Sugar Beth's former girlfriends, get the chance to turn the tables on her, they don't hesitate. And Winnie Davis, Sugar Beth's most bitter enemy, intends to humiliate her in the worst possible way.

Then there's Colin Byrne. . . . Fifteen years earlier, Sugar Beth had tried to ruin his career. Now he's rich, powerful, and the owner of her old home. Even worse, this modern-day dark prince is planning exactly the sort of revenge best designed to bring a beautiful princess to her knees.

But none of them have reckoned on the unexpected strength of a woman who's learned survival the hard way.

While Sugar Beth's battered heart struggles to overcome old mistakes, Colin must choose between payback and love. Does the baddest girl in town deserve a second chance, or are some things beyond forgiving?

Ain't She Sweet? is a story of courage and redemption. . . of friendship and laughter. . . of love and the possibility of happily-ever-after.

great even though it made me cry so much.. more
Starts off so bad but I'm a stickler for finishing. Overall great read.more
I highly recommend this book to novel writers, even though it is ostensibly about screenwriting. McKee will change the way you think about storytelling.more
"Story" is veteran screenwriter Bob McKee's guide to screenwriting. It's practical, direct, almost forcefully so, and filled with examples of good filmwriting. McKee's guide doesn't assume any prior knowledge, and is comprehensive in its coverage of the many aspects of writing a film.McKee's book can also be applied to any other genre of creative writing, because, as he admits, much of what he writes about is universal. My one gripe with the book is that it is sometimes too forceful, and too confident in its belief of the Dominance of Great Films.more
Any aspiring screenwriter must read this book. McKee explains the elements of story, and how to write a good one. A must read.more
A great companion to Donald Miller’s A Million Miles, for in it McKee unknowingly demonstrates how the crafting of a good story aligns with the living of a good life. McKee’s advice on shaping character, winnowing down to core events and values, and his admonishment to “Show, don’t tell” are great pieces of advice, for anyone seeking a well-lived life, even if they’re not a writer. Also, the book succeeds on its primary level, giving writers direction in craft that is both philosophical and practical, with great screenplay analysis interspersed throughout. His analysis of story and its principles aligns well with Tierno's Aristotle's Poetics for Screenwriters.more
Without doubt the screenwriter's bible, but rather over-long and full of its own sense of importance. Some insights for novelists, but not 100% overlap.more
Great pep talk on writing! Like a halftime talk by a coach. Not really going to change anything, but can inspire if you are open to it.more
Robert McKee has produced one of the best, if not the best, book on how to write well. Aimed at screenwriters, this work also has a strong following among novelists. Worth rereading, highlighting, post-it bookmarking, living and breathing. But don't drink the Kool-Aid, there are some gaps that other writing books are meant to fill.more
I found this book very helpful in delevoping my writing!more
Best book on screenwriting and story out there. Can't agree with the former reviewer: You have to see McKee live as well, as his "performance" of the seminar adds a whole new layer to the book.more
McKee's got a real grip on story and character, and he makes it understandable. While he gets quite a bit of hype--and has expensive seminars--his methods also get results. Worth every doggone dime--that is, if writing something that deserves an audience is part of the plan.more
May not be novel writing but gets to the discipline of making words/images countmore
This is absolutely the best book on screenwriting, and one of the best books on writing, that I have ever read. All books on writing want to be this book but don't do it very well.Seriously, just get a copy.more
