Action/Adventure Genre Discussion

Post by gali »

For the month of November 2021, we will be reading Action/Adventures book.

Action can be considered a genre that uses suspense in a way that gets readers excited "to know how the conflict between the protagonist and antagonist is going to be resolved or what the solution to the puzzle of a thriller is." Typically, this genre emphasizes on "exciting action sequences." (wikipedia)

Adventure can be thought of as a genre "that usually presents danger, or gives the reader a sense of excitement." The actual adventure is usually outside the protagonist's everyday life, and can include some danger and action. (wikipedia)

Please discuss the following:
  • Share the title and author of the book you read.
  • Was it primarily an action-based novel or adventure-based? What makes this book an action, adventure, or action/adventure read?
  • Were there other genres woven into the text?
  • What were your impressions?
  • Would you recommend the book you read? Why or why not?

"In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
