Someone great once said that people who haven’t read books have only lived one life. We couldn’t agree more. A good author lets his or her readers live the lives of multiple people by narrating the story so beautifully and intricately defining the details in such a manner. This is one of the reasons that people love fiction as much as non-fiction: living a life that is different from reality through the eyes of the author.
