One of the biggest problem areas for writers is conveying a character's emotions to the reader in a unique, compelling way. This book comes to the rescue by highlighting 75 emotions and listing the possible body language cues, thoughts, and visceral responses for each. Using its easy-to-navigate list format, readers can draw inspiration from character cues that range in intensity to match any emotional moment.

An excellent resource I use almost every day as a novelist. ( )

This book begins with several brief chapters emphasizing the importance of emotion in fiction and describing ways writers might convey the point-of-view character’s emotions to readers. However, most of the book is devoted to an alphabetically ordered list of emotions (e.g., agitation, denial, envy, and shame). The coverage of each emotion begins with a definition. For example, amazement is defined as overwhelming astonishment or wonder. That is followed by sections listing physical signals and behaviors associated with the named emotion, external sensations and mental responses characters might experience, acute or long-term reactions to emotions, and signs the emotion is being suppressed. Emotions characters might experience as the feeling escalates or de-escalates are listed. A list of associated power verbs and a writer’s tip conclude each narrative. For example, smell triggers memory, so include olfactory descriptors when a character feels curious.

Many emotions are covered, as are signs and signals associated with them. However, the same content appears repeatedly for numerous emotions. That is realistic, of course, because human emotions overlap. For example, we feel some of the same sensations when excited or frightened. Writers will find it necessary to combine various emotions to simulate complex reactions in real life. For example, in a story I am writing, a man feels attracted to a woman but questions the appropriateness of his response and fears a romantic overture would be rejected.

Readers seeking a list of plug-and-play examples will be disappointed. Instead, the Emotion Thesaurus is a valuable source of hints designed to stimulate authors thinking and provide suggestions that lead to a broad view of the emotions covered. It’s a helpful reference to keep handy. ( )
