    1. Hated this book :)) not just because i think viewing literature as a formalist or as an structuralist always unsees the part that distunguishes literature from any other prose, but because as the subject was boring (since it tried to formulate any literary text) the tone was just as boring making reading harder.


    2. I've been using this on and off for more than fifteen years, first as a primer in narrative, now as a dipper-into and refresher – both tasks, I think, with which it copes very admirably. Rimmon-Kenan offers a beginner in the study of narrative a concise, clear overall guide to various aspects of the topic (time, focalisation, narration, &c) and its brevity is a strength here, with little in the way of padding to get in the way of a focused delivery. For the more advanced reader, this volum [...]


    3. Narrative Fiction is a short, easy-to-read book—and thus, an unintimidating introduction to narratology/narrative theory. The book is organized around three concepts: story (the succession of narrated events), text (the verbal representation of events), and narration (the act of telling or writing).

    4. A great intro text for literary/narrative fiction theory. At times the jargon was a little overpowering for someone not immersed in literary theory. I did really like the abundance of literary examples used by the author - these made the jargon make more sense!


    5. A very informative book and great introduction to narratology, the language was a bit confusing though, especially in the beginning.


    6. A short and simple overview of narrative concepts from a literary background. Definitely light reading, but not useless.



    7. I strongly recommend this book to the students of Narratology and to the general readers of fiction as well. It reveals smoothly and Chrystal clearly the deepest secrets of narrative technique.


    8. The book takes a fundamental approach when it's talking about formal narrative but It's a must read for everyone trying to start a writing career.


    9. A very good book in the process of understanding a lot about fiction very simple, clear a book One can begin with.
