Today i wanna rant about one of the best feelings out there.
RELATING TO A BOOK CHARACTER!
sure we read to escape
sure we read to get live new lives.
see new places
But finding a character and somehow relating to him/her, MAKES US FEEL ALIVE!
Like yeah, the author somehow knew how i was feeling,
maybe she/he did experience something similar to me,
or she/he even thinks like me,
maybe she has a friend like me.
you guys feeling me?
So obviously, i’m talking about new adult romance or mystery. Maybe even poetry.
Feeling this connection with a fictional character, gives me hope; It makes the whole reading experience really personal and super touching!
No matter how the fucked up the character’s action turn out to be through the novel, you will still love him/her, and understand where her/his actions come from.
you got this deep understanding,
GOD I LOVE IT WHEN IT HAPPENS!
And you know what’s even better, reading reviews about readers who felt something similar to you, i mean, they probably live in another continent, living a whole different life.
but somehow, you both felt the same thing.
it’s just fascinating!
