A pink book review is necessary, especially if you’ve been pondering on whether or not to buy a copy of the novel. The title implies the intensity of the book, and it certainly does. However, this is far from a typical book review. The novel encourages readers to reflect on the past, while giving them an opportunity to write their own secret diary. The author of the book, Amy Heckerling, makes it clear that she wants readers to be true to themselves.
Burn After Writing is an enlightening book for readers who have experienced writer’s block and have pondered the meaning of life. The title encourages readers to write about nothing but themselves and their stories. The book contains thought experiments and incisive questions that will challenge readers to consider their past and present, and to write their own secret book. The resulting pink book review will be a personal snapshot of the author and a very unique portrait of her.
The book is divided into two parts, the first about the present, the second about the future, which talks about the ideal job and all the obstacles along the way. While it is aimed at adults, it is also applicable to young teens, and is a great gift for any writer. The question section is particularly interesting, as it prompts reflection on the past, present, and future. Although the book is intended for adults, it’s also highly applicable to all age groups.
