What will I find in an Action and Adventure Book?

Action fiction is the literary genre that includes spy novels, adventure stories, tales of terror and intrigue (“cloak and dagger”), and mysteries. This kind of story utilizes suspense, the tension that is built up when the reader wishes to know how the conflict between the protagonist and antagonist is going to be resolved or what the solution to the puzzle of a thriller is.

Action fiction is a form of genre fiction whose subject matter is characterized by emphasis on exciting action sequences. This does not always mean they exclude character development or story-telling. Action fiction is related to other forms of fiction, including action films, action games and analogous media in other formats such as manga and anime. It includes martial arts action, extreme sports action, car chases and vehicles, suspense action, and action comedy, with each focusing in more detail on its own type and flavor of action. It is usually possible to tell from the creative style of an action sequence, the emphasis of an entire work, so that, for example, the style of a combat sequence will indicate whether the entire work can be classified as action adventure, or a martial work. Action is mainly defined by a central focus on any kind of exciting movement.

Whether it’s a boys-own yarn read at bedtime, inspiring dreams of pirates, lion-hunts and eye-patched villains – or a grown-up tale of Bond-like secret agents, adventure-seeking archaeologists, or an ordinary Joe or Joleen suddenly finding their life turned upside down by malevolent unknown forces – a good action and adventure book will transport you to far flung places, raise your heart-beat, then whisk you at high speed through mysteries, suspense and thrills, on every page, at great pace, until you finish your book, breathless, wide-eyed and probably a little hungry from the exertion.
