Hi all, Basically my question is do you prefer fiction or non-fiction books when reading for fun? I find it difficult to get into a reading a fiction book because they don’t often take my interest and I tend to judge them from the blurb first. Whereas with non-fiction I know what it’s about in advance so I find it easier to get stuck in. For example I have interests in the works of Orwell and the Cold War, so his novels were easier to get stuck into as was Red October, non-fiction books are easy to come by for example my current book is the ‘The Red Flag: a History of Communism’ by David Priestland; it’s a niche area but as a socialist critic of communism it interests me. Yet if I picked up a fiction book from a book shop for example HG Wells that isn’t based in real tangible history (allowing for poetic license like Red October did), I’d really struggle to pick an author or a novel because I’d find it hard to be interested by it. Any tips or advice or am I too specific in what I want out of a book?
