Why Do You Enjoy A Fantasy Novel?
If I have a choice of both, there has never been an occasion when I picked a novel of any other genre over fantasy. If there is a fantasy book available, it needs to be read first. Period. A lot of my friends feel this way and I wonder what makes us such big fans of fantasy. For me, below are the reasons why fantasy is my number one pick on my bookshelf.
1) There's Magic! - Magic is cool. Magic is fun. Magic is hot. You can shout "Accio" and have whatever you wanted in your hand. How cool is that! Magic sprinkles awe in my fantasy books. It takes me to another world helping me escape the boring, mundane earth for a better, more comfortable atmosphere. It gives my imagination a high.
2) There's Action! - Yes, most of the good fantasy novels have super plots that involves lot of high speed action. You do not have to get tangled in a long, confusing and really useless emotional out pours and relationships between even more confused men and women. In stead enjoy the fast moving and captivating action with more meaningful quests like treasure hunts, or killing the evil lord in a strange world within magical people . And here anything can happen! It is unpredictable and the list of things that can happen is endless. I love that! Slurp slurp!
3) and Some Really Hot Men! - Damon Salvatore? Edward Cullen? Totally swoon worthy, right? They add so much excitement to the already exciting fantasy world that you totally want to be the Fantasyland citizen just so that you can meet them (and probably kidnap them in your house!). And their undying, totally romantic and no-expectations love for their ladies...sigh. :)
Any book that has a high dosage of all three is on my hot favorite list and why not? They make me happy. Extremely. What makes fantasy fiction so attractive to you? Please don't tell me the book hero is your only motivation. Haha....
