Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear Reviews

    Preach, Vain, Snore



    You know, I didn't enter into this as a "hate-read", despite being such a cynic. I don't like to waste my time and money on things just to have something to snark at (I can already hear the snickering in the audience as I write that). You see, with any of these advice books I actually want to learn something useful; that's the whole reason why I would pick it up in the first place. Despite being utterly let down with her previous book, I genuinely wanted to give this a try, if

  • Whitney Atkinson

    I know this has mixed reviews but I didn't mind it! It's not my new bible or anything but it was definitely a kick to the booty to get going on all the story ideas I have. This touches on important topics about staying humble as an author, writing for the right reasons, persevering, and forming ideas. Although this applies to all creativity, I felt especially attached to this as a writer because she is also a writer.

    A debated topic in this book is that Gilbert encourages people not to go to art

    I was in a reading slump, and no fictional novel helped.

    No matter how many times I grabbed a book that sounded interesting, even my to-be-reviewed pile didn't help. In matter of fact, it just got things worse, because everytime I looked at it, I felt like not wanting to read. Period.

    That's when I grabbed Big Magic.

    And it worked, in a way...

    I would probably read it in one day, if I didn't start it in the evening.

    But... as soon as I finished it, my reading slump came back.

    So I guess this book is m

    DNF @ 61%

    I tried, for 61% I tried. I found a couple quotes from other people that I highlighted but that was it. I never highlighted anything the author wrote. I had to ask myself why am I reading a book where the authors advice is not connecting with me ? Why wasn't it working, several reasons. One was the qualifications of the author, two was the lack of any real actions.

    The author, I did not know who she was when I purchased this book, I had not read her Eat Pray Love novel, but had seen it o

  • Marina

    I decided not to finish this book at about 50% mostly because the level of bullshit reached astronomic proportions; the final straw was Gilbert saying the writing and art are the most useless jobs in the world and hold no merit compared to jobs that actually benefit society. ... and she isn't joking or being ironic. This is a New York Times best selling-author telling me that writing is useless, thankless job. I wonder if she laughed as she typed that.

    What Gilbert basically says is: If you’re in

    I think I just found my bible.

  • Julie Christine

    There could not have been a better time to read Big Magic than in the fraught and anxious, giddy and surreal days before launching my first novel. Gilbert's words soothed and grounded me, took me out of the uncomfortable, jangly headspace of self-promotion and back into the embrace of what it means to be a creative person, why I set forth on this path in the first place.

    Fear is boring.

    Yes. This. I spent forty-one years (okay, maybe thirty-five; for the first six I was blissfully unaware that I

    Create whatever you want to create—and let it be stupendously imperfect, because it's exceedingly likely that nobody will even notice.

    And that's awesome.


    Yes. Yes it is. ...more

  • Jenny (Reading Envy)

    I received a copy of this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I have enjoyed Elizabeth Gilbert's TED talks on creativity, more than her books, so I was happy to see her write a book on the topic she seems to think about a lot. Within this book itself she admits that she is writing it in order to explore what she thinks about creativity.

    The book seems to be similar to one of those gift books you get when you graduate with highschool, with motivational quotes and pictures, those b
