Lauren | 931 comments Hmm... I like knowing that it is real, that it could happen to me.

When you read a book like this, and it is in great detail, it feels like you have actually experienced the story. It's a good feeling... I think by reading more realistic fiction books you'll end up learning a lot more. It's also very good to have all these experiences. If something similar happens in your life you know what to do, and what not to do. A realistic fiction book is sort of like a guide to me. Jodi Picoult helps with that a lot.

Sans Wow, I don't think I've read much fiction. I like Jhumpa Lahiri. Oh! And Haruki Murakami.
