The Power of Fantasy Books: Why They’re Worth Reading

“The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams.”- George R.R Martin

Fantasy books have always had a special place in the hearts of readers. They take us to a world filled with wonder where dragons breathe fire and fairies dance in the moonlight, from wizards to werewolves and weird dungeons underground. In a world of fantasy, books is a magical place, where anything is possible and the limits to your imagination are boundless. They have the power to transport you to a different realm and leave you spellbound.

Without further adieu lets dive deep into the world of fantasy books. Here are 5 reasons why they’re worth your time.



Escaping Reality:

Sometimes reality can be a bit too much to handle. We all need an escape from time to time, and what better way to do that than spacing into a magical world of your own making?  Fantasy books takes us to a world where we can forget about our daily problems for a while.

As J.R.R Tolkien once said “Fantasy is escapist, and that is it’s glory.”


Imagination and Developing Creativity:

Fantasy books are not just a source for entertainment, they also help us develop our creativity. When we read about magical worlds, we are forced to use our imagination to visualise what we’re reading. The vivid description of magical powers and mystical landscapes encourage us to envision them in our minds. Fantasy books inspire us to dream bigger and think outside the box.



Empathy and Relationship building:

Fantasy books often feature complex characters and relationships with relatable struggles and challenges. They offer a window into different prospectives and world views helping us to develop empathy and understanding of others. From overcoming adversity to the power of friendship, these books can teach us valuable lessons to apply to our own lives.



Morals and lessons:

Many of the fantasy novels convey heartfelt moral lessons and values, sometimes it’s a fable and other times the message is secretly hidden but well received.

The Harry Potter Series for example, while being everyone’s cup of tea and favourite read of almost all millennials out there, it also teaches us the value of friendship, bravery and taking a stand for when its right.

The Lord of the Rings shows us the power of perseverance and self- sacrifice. Fantasy books can teach us valuable life lessons in a way that’s entertaining and engaging.



A Sense of Wonder and Magic:

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being swept away by a great fantasy book.The sense of wonder and magic is here to stay with us even after we’ve finished reading the book. They remind us that there is mystery and enchantment in the world and they encourage us to keep exploring and discovering new things. As C.S Lewis said “ Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”

In conclusion, Fantasy books have the power to inspire, entertain, and transport us to new worlds. Weather you’re longtime fan of the genre or a curious newcomer; there are countless amazing books out there waiting to be explored. So take a break from reality and get lost in the world of fantasy, as J.R.R Tolkien said “Not all those who wander are lost”
