Understanding Yandere Lovers uYounger readers and how to apply this advice for varying reading ages This This book did not livep to my expectations I read several good reviews and hoped that it would give me a solid foundation for creating the bad guys I need in my fiction But I found the exploration of badness and evil to be shallow and repetitive It was not much than found the exploration of badness and evil to be shallow and repetitive It was not much than got out of a few chapters in a general book about character "development About halfway through the book I started skimming and scanning the bullet "About halfway through the book I started skimming and scanning the bullet The author did present valid points I just wish they had gone deeper One point that did make an impression was the idea that deeper One point that did make an impression was the idea that antagonist does not have to be a person It can be a force or natural law Another was a good list of types of antagonist that included several non obvious character types This book was recommended to me by my friend and fellow author TE MacArthur I concur with her premise that no matter where we are in the authorshippublishing game we can all learn something newIn this book author Jessica Page Morrell not only writes about creating the baddies antagonists and villains across genders and species but about how fear itself works In order to play on the psychology of fear in a reader Morrell maintains authors need to Kings of Paradise (Ash and Sand understand the biochemical nature of the emotionThere are chapters on writing female baddies antagonists out and out villains and anti heroes as well as writing baddies for children s and teen focused literatureThere s a lot to take in from an author s perspective here but all of it isseful and will doubtless be Brothers used as reference material time and again.
