I recently finished Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies, by Jared Diamond. A phenomenal work. Not a light read but one that I couldn’t put down. No fiction in this work of course but definitely makes the reader think.
Yesterday, I started The Key To Rebecca, by Ken Follet. A piece of historical fiction, but fiction nonetheless. Good fiction gets me thinking differently. Fiction opens up a world that readers wouldn’t think of.
Deciding which I prefer, fiction or non-fiction, is not an easy task. Many factors, the author, story, subject, time, my mood, all play a role in deciding what I’m going to read.
So here is the question fellow bloggers: fiction or non-fiction, which do you prefer?
