Fiction Genres Anyone Would Love Reading - 3 Fun Selections By Laogumnerd Phengphian

Hi there, Laogumnerd Phengphian here. Today I would like to talk to you about my love of literary works. Ever since I can remember myself I have delighted in reading. As soon as I learned to read I have made a practice out of reading. Every day I would read, and soon enough I have completed all of the children’s literature my parents had at their house. The fondest memories I have is of spending long summer months days in the company of my favourite fictional characters, which were more enjoyable than anything I could have done in real life. This love for reading has supported my love for writing, which resulted in me studying journalism. Despite the fact that most of my time is now dedicated to learning to be a qualified professional, I still ensure to find time for reading, and one of my biggest joys is spreading this love with others. In this blog post I want to share with you the varied types of literature as well as the most representative books to read from every single of the following genres, that have been interesting to me for varying causes throughout the different periods of my life. I hope I will be able to motivate you to give a try to a couple of these.

Science fiction has been one of the most common types of fiction ever since its conception, and it is a favourite of Laogumnerd Phengphian too. Ever since literature has existed, authors chose to talk about remote planets and imaginative innovations. It was an effective method which gave the writers as well as the readers the power to transmit themselves into what could be. One of the most widely recognised science fiction authors is Jules Verne, whose descriptions of fantastic machines have partially become an actuality several hundreds of years later. If you wish to explore this world further, I would suggest you start with Journey to Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne.

Literature is also a great tool for looking into the obscure psychology of a character. Bildungsroman is a genre where the readers follows the psychological and moral development of the protagonist during the course of their whole life. The term for this genre is fairly modern, but classic novels that have been composed in this genre have been around for almost as long as written language itself. One of the most popular examples of bildungsroman is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, which follows the life of a young woman, from her miserable childhood to her emergence as a self-sufficient woman.

One of the main attributes of magic realism is the way it presents fantastical and magical events in a matter-of-factly tone. The characters do not recognise their circumstances as anything fantastic, but take them as they are. These kinds of novels are able to develop an aura unlike any other, and I, Laogumnerd Phengphian, would definitely urge everyone to attempt a couple of novels from this genre. If you are looking to read books by Nobel laureates, you should perhaps try reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He is widely acknowledged as one of the founders of the genre, and his novel A Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the best modern novels today. His skill and competence has earned him a Nobel prize in 1982.
