The book ultimately reads like a phd dissertation from a lower rank university. While the casual reader might be introduced to a few key names and concepts - further reading will be required to actually understand them, or even to get a proper summation. A pity really because this book - as the concept - could have filled an important niche. 8 people found this helpful.

This classic text has been substantially rewritten. Narrative explores a range of written, spoken, literary and non-literary narratives. It shows what systematic attention to language can reveal about the narratives themselves, their tellers, and those to whom they are addressed.New material includes sections on gendered narrative, film narrative and a discussion of ways in which the internet and global television are changing conceptions of narrative.
  • A good example of the sort of book that sells through Amazon that one would never have purchased if given the opportunity to flip through it at a bookshop beforehand.

    The concept is solid - a bite-sized historical review of the narrative and narrative theory. Unfortunately, the delivery is unfinished and uneven. The weakest element are the examples cited - the book is framed around them - and they are for the most part extremely ill-chosen pop-culture references. Other quirks like the distracting in-text reference citations (as opposed to footnotes or endnotes) really make the case that this book could have benefited from the guiding hand of a professional editor at an early stage.

    The book ultimately reads like a phd dissertation from a lower rank university. While the casual reader might be introduced to a few key names and concepts - further reading will be required to actually understand them, or even to get a proper summation. A pity really because this book - as the concept - could have filled an important niche.

  • A very basic introduction.
