watch?v=Vp7aodvB1p4I am a big fan of fantasy. They are my favorite type of novels to read. I was thinking about why I like them so much. I guess it’s because they usually have a pretty intense adventure and then a happy ending. I like happy endings, sad endings like in Of Mice and Men leave me trying to solve the problem. I personally enjoy a satisfying ending when you can go to sleep content rather than trying to fix problems that some author thought up. Another reason I like fantasy is because anything is possible, but in the best written novels it always has some limitations. Like for example in Eragon magic is only possible when you know the correct words to say and it takes your strength, like if you were to use magic to move a rock it would take the same amount of energy from you to get up and move that rock. V.s, say, something like Harry Potter where you wave your wand and bang! what ever you want appears, also the words they say have no relevance to anything but the spell itself where as Eragon they are words from the ancient language, to move a stick you might say stick in the ancient language. I guess it’s pretty obvious that one of my favorite books is Eragon, I love it. Fantasy is different from other genres because it lets you escape from reality. I think that is one of the main reasons I read fantasy. In fantasy the laws of the world today don’t mean anything. Like one book I read, totally forget the name :P, it was proper not to brush your hair and tangles were beautiful. The little girl in the book used to brush her hair to annoy her sister. There is a parallel universe, for example in the Dividewhere the main character accidentally falls into a universe where the mythical creatures existed. I love learning about new mythical creatures, especially the ones in Greek mythology. For some reason the adventures fascinate me even though, like, no one ends up happy. One of the best series that I’ve ever read, ranking up there with Eragon and its sequel Eldest, is the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series. It is about a boy who turns out to be son of Poseidon, sorry gave part of the first book lol, and his adventures and his always end up with fairly satisfying ending.
