“…we should note that itâ€™s not what readers are escaping from but what they are escaping into that counts most. Most of us do not find fictional worlds appealing because we find our own lives despicable, though censorious people often make that assumption. Auden once wrote that â€œthere must always be â€¦ escape-art, for man needs escape as he needs food and deep sleep.â€ The sleeper does not disdain consciousness.” source: The Pleasures of Reading in An Age of DistractionI love that analogy. We all long for a good nights rest, but that doesn’t mean that we hate being awake. It’s just that the rest offers us something different that completes the time that we are awake. And that is why I love a good story. Whether it’s a RPG (role playing game) on the Xbox, or C.S. Lewis’ land of Narnia, a good storyline captures the imagination and taps into something deep inside of us. When is the last time you enjoyed a good story?
