I was given a Copy of How to Write Like Tolstoy through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:

Written by a former university professor How to Write Like Tolsoy reminds us that we must begin at the beginning.  Cohen points out that every author must discover the style that best suits the individual author.  He also talks about finding out whether your book is told in 1st, or third person or more rarely second person.

Richard Cohen reminds us to question what makes good fiction.  This book talks about many aspects of writing.

I recommend How to Write Like Tolstoy to authors and aspiring Authors.

Five out of five stars

Happy Reading…
