Books are said to develop us mentally and spiritually, to provide us with knowledge and enable us of independent thinking. However, I sometimes want just to read, without all this personal development and other philosophical stuff. Yet, it appears that in the world where everybody has something clever to say t is difficult to find just an adventure story with interesting twisted plot which will make you “swallow” the book. Having dived into the depth of my memory I have extracted several adventure stories which I recommend you to read.
Recently I have heard an interesting story about the motivation of one famous writer to start creating books. He began to write himself because his wife was a fan of so called harlequin novels, or in simpler words chicklit. He said they were so awful that he just had to start writing something good.
Anyway, the level of popularity of these books with pure romance on the pages is higher than I can understand. And even the most intelligent women love to be absorbed in this sea of false passion. Let’s think a bit why it is so.
