He goes over Japanese Light Novel style writing and tropes, Chinese Webnovel writing, and Korean Webnovel writing. Very informative- for instance, I always liked Wuxia from a distance, but this book really gave me a boost of information and awareness of the genre (and inspired me to get more into reading Chinese novels in general.) Japanese Light Novel tropes don't always vibe with me, so in reading this book, I was surprised that as a writer I more naturally gravitate towards the style of Chinese Webnovel tropes.
This is a book with a lot to offer- probably more than you're looking for, in fact, as I didn't really need to go over some sections, such as LitRPGs, and that's fine- even without reading the sections for genres you lack interest in writing, there's still a wealth of context and knowledge to be gained by reading the sections pertaining to what you -do- have interest in. The technical approaches of "Scene Blocking" and "Duel" writing are very intuitive and inspiring approaches that allow you to use simple yet modular methods to guide you to create consistently exciting and compelling scenes.
This was a lot of fun to read, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to write and enjoys Anime, Manga, jRPGs or Visual Novels, and wants to write anything that evokes those kind of feelings.
But a corner is rather folded.
As for the content, what's written is good. Most of what's written I don't need because I don't write in those genres, or I already knew by reading light novels. But the ones I do need, do give some refreshers, and some ideas.
I've read through it twice now and I'm still finding more information.
I know it was geared to a specific type of writing. Don't let that fool you. It's filled to the brim with good writing advice in general.
To be honest, when I first borrowed this book (it's in KU), I was expecting a small book on the differences between light novels and webnovels. A really high level discussion.
I was NOT expecting the depth of material in what I read. That's a very good thing. It's just blown me away.
It contains more than just what light and web novels are. It really digs deep into the subject and lays out very specific similarities and differences. Then it goes even deeper and offers advice on how to construct stories.
Lest you believe that it is just limited to light and web novels, let me warn you now that it is NOT. Even for a writer of commercial genre, it has so much good advice, tips and tricks that will really help your book go deeper.
