What a useful little book this is! It is crammed full of words, as it says in the forward it aims to teach you to ‘look at the world with an artist’s eye’. I think it does just that.
The book is organised into sections say Rivers and Streams and in each section there are detailed grids suggesting words for the colours of these, the sound, the shape, actions, metaphors, similes, other images, sensation and smell. So whatever you want to describe you look it up and there at your fingertips is a vast selection of ways to treat your chosen topic.
Some sections include suggestions for pathetic fallacy too and all through there are texts giving examples.
I’m currently going through this book and, in short breaks like lunch time at work, scribbling down ideas, words to select so that my next book Murder in Millfield will be sprinkled with stardust. A great resource 5 *****
