Oh, this was a good post! I generally read fiction because frankly, I get enough non-fiction in real life. Not having time for "made up stuff that isn't real" is just sad!


I think the best books, fiction or nonfiction, are the ones that feel true. No one will ever convince me that Harry, Ron, and Hermione aren't real. Yet sometimes I read a memoir that is supposed to be based on real life and it feels partially false, like the writer didn't manage to shed all the masks she has to wear in order to survive. I'm currently listening to the audio book version of Possession by A.S. Byatt -- one of my all-time favorite books -- and these people feel very real to me. Have you read it?
