Below are some comments from the community, please feel free to add to the list.

  • Some fantasy readers are unhappy with their lives and think that they would be happier in another world. A place where someone who is not so successful in this world might be a hero or king in another world.
  • I like reading fantasy books because they provide me with a beneficial different point of view on world and everything. I like to think about it using the analogy to house that you may live in but you'll never be able to understand if you don't ever get outside and look at it from perspective.
  • You can see a lot of tiny details in fantasy books that you may somehow lose in your everyday life just because they aren't getting enough your attention... Digest them and they'll make your life more colourful and interesting.
  • A lot of fantasy is about the world we would like to see, a dream we want to pursue. Where would we be at if we didn't dream? Fantasy novels are extremely popular, but most popular with children. This is probably due to the natural curiosity and fascinated imagination inherent in nearly every young person. Fantasy worlds that suggest things like magic and sorcery, epic battles between non-existing good and evil species and happy endings are all part of what it means to be young. Older readers might enjoy Fantasy because of its imaginative scope, and also because of the uncanny ability fantasy has to show us aspects of our own lives in an otherwise far-fetched format. People can relate to the emotions and experiences of fantasy characters, as well as mirror events in human history, through the blurred mirror of the fantasy world.
  • I like reading fantasy because I have a vivid imagination and I find its better used reading fantasy than everyday life. Because I can imagine what its like so much easier than if it were a real place. I can make it up just the way i like it, because in fantasy there is no real right or wrong. Also because I believe there is magic, people just don't realise it because it works in subtle ways, and you may not recognise it for what it is.
  • Fantasy is a place to escape when you no longer want to live in real life. Where you can let your imagination run free and have control over what you see and hear.
  • Many people like to escape the hustle and bustle of real life and be captured by a story which involves something special, unreal or different - possibly magic. People enjoy being in someone else's shoes - someone extraordinary, so that we can look at the world through another's eyes. You can switch off and enjoy letting your imagination run wild.

It really depends on what you like. There are of course the typical fantasy books like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and the Narnia books. But there are other books like the Inheritance Trilogy, The Sword of Truth series, The 7th Tower Series and the Forgotten Realms series.

of course you can. But it depends on what your reading. Non-fiction books will teach you heps on whatever particular topic is about. However if you like fantasy or books like that you will learn things that arnt factual but still interesting. I read nearly every night and im in year 10 at school. Reading help your creativity and gives you ideas for your own narratives or whatever you like writing about. You can learn lots!!

There are many reasons why people like fantasy movies. One main reason is that it expands creativity and lets people escape the real world and go into their own world. Just like books. The only difference between books and movies is that movies gives you visuals of the scene while books make you create your own scene with the same idea as the book's.

Trial and error. Try a book of every category (mystery, fantasy/sci-fi, historical fiction, romance, etc.) to find what you like.

User Avatar

Not really- the characters in it are more like robots, so that makes it more science fiction than fantasy.

They're called fiction fantasy. They are really awesome. If you like funny books with a bit of romance, these are great books.

Many more people than one would expect read books in the US. You can go to cafes, schools, libraries, bus stops, trains, and airplanes and see people reading. More than a million books are sold each day. Reading from books are not dead yet. Some people prefer reading from books than from reading off computers. People can actually hold books, and they don't hurt your eyes like computers do. So to answer your question, quite a few read books. I'm sorry I can't give you an exact number, but I'm sure its in the millions.

People like to read books because it lets their imagination wander and give them some time off of real life and let them be themselves in the book. It allows them to think and not be criticized for who they are.
