Fantasyis perceivable as a genre type where the events that occur aredifferent from real life occurrences (CambridgeDictionary, 2016).The plot usually brings fictional worlds to bear. For example,undiscovered planets or magic depict the scenes in such stories.Fantasy books are interesting and easy to understand because theideas that such writings advance are easy to comprehend. Genres suchas science fiction, technology, and reality use concepts that aretedious and difficult to understand. Unlike these writing styles, themystical creatures in fantasy novels not only stimulate theimagination of the readers, but they also help them to escapereality.
Asa child, I was a big fan of fantasy books. The clear-cut conflictsthat were inherent in these novels aroused in me the desire to readmore. I could easily differentiate the characters that had nobleintentions from the evil ones. However, the most exciting booksblurred these lines. The struggle to discover the evil characteralways excited me.
Atschool, I learned that fantasy novels attracted the funny, quiet,empathetic, and adventurous individuals. These people usuallycontextualized the occurrences in the world within a fantasyframework. Thus, whenever they felt overwhelmed by the events thatwere taking place in their lives, they escaped reality by readingfictional novels.
Thebroad range of fantasy categorizations shocked me. For an extendedperiod, I assumed that fiction stories only involved mysticalcreatures and undiscovered worlds this was wrong. Fantasy booksencompassed the heroic, contemporary, medieval, epic, and evenhumorous narratives. This particular section of the textbook enabledme to separate fantasy fiction from other genres more distinctly. Forexample, I can now ascertain that Harry Porter is a fantasy bookwhile Frankenstein is science fiction.
