    This is a reference book full of useful verbs, like a thesaurus dialed in specifically for the fiction writer. It has easy to find, quick to use suggestions for weak verbs. Because I borrowed this with Kindle Unlimited and will have to return it, I do think I’ll end up purchasing a copy to have at hand when I’m revising. The suggestions are plentiful, and just a single strong verb can spark an entire creative process at the keyboard.

    This is a nice resource for writers who are looking for something quick so that they don't have to keep using the same verbs over and over. It is broken down into subsections so that you can get more specific with what you want to write, which I really appreciate.

    Great reference book! So this book is very much like a thesaurus. The author makes a list of words (specifically verbs) and lists all words that mean the same thing, with the slight advantage that she also writes HOW they might be used in various ways. For example take the word Stab: a mild use = Prick, Moderately= Pierce, and Severe = ​Impale. Those words are similar but make a HUGE difference in meaning and severity. I think I'll have to buy this one, keep myself from using the same words haha Great reference book! So this book is very much like a thesaurus.

    It's as basic at it gets. I gave it a 4 stars for the promise of delivering 1,000 verbs for fiction writer. But they are not all that Strong or game changers. Obviously, this is meant for writers. All you will find here is a list of words. So please don't make the purchase if you are looking for words and usage by example. There are no examples of great ways to use the words. As a writer, that is up to you. Great little book. It's as basic at it gets.

    Nothing new here I did not find this book any different than a good thesaurus and it did not contain many of the words I was looking for. I gave it 3 stars because it does provide more information than a simple google search and if you don't already own a good thesaurus you might find it helpful.

    If you are a ficton writer, this book is a must. The verbs that come to mind are the most commonly used ones, not surprisingly. They are weak verbs. This book gives suggestions for stronger alternatives, to make your writing shine. Using these suggestions, your fiction will spring to life. I will definitely be using it during the editing process in future.

    Must Have I obtained this through Kindle Unlimited. I will be buying this (and any others by Ms. Howard) because the set up is simple: what verb (adjective, what have you) you have, what will strengthen your sentence? Much better than a thesaurus.

    This is a valuable tool to have. I have used it a few times during my writing. It gives good alternatives and broadens my descriptive language greatly. It is handy to use and gives great ideas when stuck or when you become repetitive. Great book.

    A Thesaurus Would Be a Better Guide This is just a list of synonyms with no context of how they should be used. One must be careful because without proper meaning listed you can over or under describe your characters action.

    If the characters in your story are mostly walking, talking, sighing and nodding, then pick up this book and gather some mental-image invoking verbs. It’ll make your characters seem more authentic and your storytelling more engaging.

    A good list; wish it had some exercises or context Does what it says it will do. Delivers. I just wish it was more than just a list of verbs: maybe add some exercises or examples within context apart from the weak introduction.

    It's an okay book. I was looking out of the normal verbs instead of the obvious verbs used all the time. It's an okay book. I was looking out of the normal verbs instead of the obvious verbs used all the time.

    helpful, not definitive, but what book could be? A good tool for a writer struggling with passive sentences. A book you will keep next to you when you write.

    Literally just a list of verbs Short quip at the beginning and then just a list of verbs. There are some good examples of strong verbs though.
