World of fiction : Escapism

Surrendering to the fictitious reality of a story, and getting lost in its imaginative visualisation is one of the best ways to take a break from the real world. Reading a good story makes you a part of something that is bigger than the immediacy of your current situations. It leads you to pause and reflect, to smile and relax, to reconnect with your soul and to re-imagine what the world is to you.

Curl up on your bed, open the first page of a novel and find yourself drifting towards the intricacies of the characters, towards the creativity of the plot and towards the surrealism of fiction. Feel the power of the written words and embrace the imagination they generate. Immerse yourself in the unexplored connection that you feel with the words.

Feel the poignancy in Charlotte Bronte’s imagery. Feel the light heartedness in P.G Wodehouse’s portrayal of the world. Feel the thrill and mystification in Agatha Christie’s finely sewn plot.

What are the books that make you happy? What are the books that lead you to develop an entirely new perspective? Which author pulls you into surrealism and escapism? Let me know in the comment section!

  1. So true… books really do have a way of pulling us in into their world. And the first time I realised it was when reading famous five books which I had really early on…It really brings back a lot of good memories.

  2. When I was young Isha I always had a book in my hand. I was a typical book worm 😊and this continued till my middle age!! Now I love to travel and meditate and just read a para or two!!

    As a child I was so imaginative that I could tell my friends stories freshly cooked up in my mind πŸ˜‡

  3. I love reading too. Fiction is the one genre that I stick to. I love how books can just transport you into a different world. But of late, I’m spending too much time writing. So my reading time has reduced significantly.
