A novel is a book-length fictional manuscript whose pages when printed and bound inside a cover becomes a book. Just being fictional and bound isn't enough -- collections …of short stories, novellas, and other fictional texts can be bound, but they don't thereby become a novel. A book consists of printed sheets that can be made of almost any material (paper, parchment, fiberboard etc.) that is fastened/bound together on one side and usually protected by some type of covering. Although these are often bound, again, binding isn't essential. For example, books can be electronic with scanned images. The lack of binding doesn't mean that it isn't a book. Additionally, a book -- in common usage -- tends to have a copyright and be the product of a publisher. One could debate this aspect (e.g., is an unpublished diary a book?) In short, a novel is usually a book, but a book isn't necessarily a novel. The terms aren't interchangeable. Just remember that novel normally refers only to works of fiction. If the book isn't fiction, it isn't a novel. (There is a subgenre of nonfiction sometimes called a "nonfictional novel"; the first well-known example of this is Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood".) Book refers to the physical attributes of a thing. It is made of paper, wood, involves ink and pages attached to a spine by glue. A novel refers to the structure of the intellectual content of a book. The difference between a book and a novel is that a novel refers to a fictional manuscript that represents some character and action whereas a book is anything printed on pages and bound within some cover.
It is so much more easier to write a play than it is to write a novel because of the length. A way to express your feelings rather than reading and understanding

Length: The most obvious difference between a short story and a novel is length, typically measured in the number of words contained within. A short story, as the moniker sugg…ests, usually consists of only a few thousand words, while a novel can contain tens of thousands. The exact number differs depending on the specifications of the publisher, but a short story is usually somewhere between 2500 and 5000 words, while a novel can be upwards of 50,000. Pace: Due to their relatively small word counts, short stories can't waste time with detailed descriptions or unnecessary details. The action has to start immediately, usually at the very beginning of the piece, and continue through to the resolution with no downtime. A novel, on the other hand, has time to gradually build up to the conflict and can delve deeper into the interactions and motivations of the characters, adding side details and background information throughout. In racing terms, a short story is a sprint, while a novel is a marathon. Characters: Because of the word count constraints, short stories typically have only a few characters, with very little in-depth descriptions of their physical appearance or inner thoughts. The action has to happen quickly and carry through to the end, and a quick story is difficult with a dozen characters to keep track of. Novels are worlds of their own, though, with larger casts of main, side and recurring characters. Plot: In terms of plot, a short story is like a half-hour television show, while a novel is more like a full-length movie. Short stories usually consist of only a few scenes: an introduction, conflict and resolution in relatively rapid succession. A novel has a much deeper plot, usually with a subplot or two intertwined. Novels incorporate richer character development than short stories can offer, furthering the plot with flashbacks, foreshadowing and inner reflection.
The difference between "prose" and "novel" comes from the different natures of each. "Prose" is a particular style of writing, to be distinguished from, for example, a poe…tic style. On the other hand, a "novel" is a particular genre of literature. As a narrative of some kind, novels are constructed through the use (partial or whole) of a prose style, which of course can be used in the construction of other kinds of literature, whether letters, or blogs, or essays, etc.
A novel is a book. Drama is performed on stage.
ethnography is a story based on the truth of the society, and novel is just a story which is not real.
A novella (also called a short novel) is a written, fictional, prose narrative longer than a novelette but shorter than a novel. A novel is a book-length work of fiction. Ju…st being fictional and bound isn't enough -- collections of short stories, novellas, and other fictional texts can be bound, but they don't thereby become a novel. A novella is traditionally defined as between 17,500 and 40,000 words. A novel is over 40,000 words.
Classic works generally point out human conditions. Writers often express such conditions by incorporating influential life themes into their works, such as love, loss, justic…e, race, and politics, in a way that resonates for years to come. A classic can also be distinguished by the global awareness of its presence. Classics are often read or at least known by people worldwide, often resulting for it to be translated into multiple languages.
Yes. A novel is a printed book. A movie is a recorded film. More broadly, any novel that is rewritten and filmed as a movie will be different, since it is impossible t…o transfer all aspects of a novel (for example, long passages of narration and description) into a movie.
A novel will have a lot more written descriptions about the characters' clothes, physical appearances, the setting, the mood etc. while dramas depict these things visually on …set.
a drama is a script intended to be acted, ie as in a play, or film, the script will be written for an actor to speak example JO (shouting)........... " Sid! , put the ke…ttle on," SID, (shouting reply)......... " No, do it yourself." in a novel (such as a book) it would be Jo shouted at Sid to put the kettle on, but Sid just shouted back to her "no! do it yourself" so drama is normally acted intended for watching and a novel is normally read, at least i think that's about right, Beside many similarities like dialogue, scenes, characters, plot etc there are some differences in novel and drama. A novel is a long story with many digressions in its scenes therefore, it can't be acted on stage while a drama is a short story with simple scenes having less or no digressions in them and intended to be acted on stage.
An epic is a long poetic text that typically depicts the heroic or legendary deeds and/or adventures of historical or fictional (generally legendary) figures. A novel is a f…ictional (or fictitious) prose text of book length, which generally depicts the story of a character(s) or event(s), whether they be historical or fictional.

A novel is fictional whilst a biography is not. A biography describes significant events in an individuals' life but a novel can be written about almost any concept imagin…able.
The definition of a classic novel is a novel which can be applied to any time period. There's not a specific list of "Classic Novels." They can be as old as Homer's Odyssey, o…r as recent as Thoreau's Walden. Keep in mind however, that even though the exact circumstances of the novel might not be applicable to any time period, the deeper social or political message can.
A novella has a much smaller page size than a full romance novel.
