There are few things more pleasurable things to do than shut off the rest of the world and sink into a good book. We all have our own preferences and different genres appeal to different people. However, no matter what the genre, one thing all book fans seem to have in common is the desire for escapism.
This is especially true when it comes to reading action novels. Reading action fiction has proved a popular diversion for people seeking thrills and excitement they aren’t likely to find in their everyday lives. When’s the last time you jumped out of 20-storey burning building or were involved in white-knuckle car chase?
OK, so very few people will experience those things, but what is appealing about action fiction is that very often it is about extraordinary things which happen in pretty ordinary settings. Not every police officer will be involved in a high-speed chase or witness huge explosions every day, but we want to get lost in the story of the cop who does. Heck, we might even want to be that guy (although he’s most likely got his demons too).
The notion of escapism isn’t about trying to disengage from reality or try to hide away from our day-to-day lives. It’s more about a need to take a temporary break from the mundane things around us and excite our senses. Look at life from a different angle or simply be entertained by a gripping story or hang out with a favorite character.
