Meetup#47- Books on Fantasy

Written by: Puneet agrawal

Let’s be honest. Even though we live in a crazy world, most part of our days— and by extension, our lives— are dominated by monotony and a lack of excitement.
So it is unsurprising that we turn to fiction for that often unavailable sense of inspiration, rush and elation. In fiction, we get to enjoy the intense
drama and state change which would probably overwhelm us when happening in real life. It is like a breath of fresh air, but for your mind. Or perhaps,
experiencing thrill in a safe environment. Roller-coaster?
Well, if any form of fiction can be compared to a roller-coaster, is would surely be the genre of Fantasy. The world of fantasy, where anything is possible:
flying broomsticks, sentient dragons, dragon riders, magical rings, magical schools, magical kingdoms, tall bearded wizards, soldier alchemists, tranquil
elves, fierce dwarves, clever djinns, cunning spirits, even resurrected monsters; you name it.
On Sunday, February 26th, join us to explore these wonderful worlds that are wholly incomparable from our own.
