Novels

The common denominator here is the narrative, the story, the ‘and then?’ syndrome that has long enchanted us. Romantic, adventure, science fiction, dystopian, crime, whodunit, fantasy, thriller: all these are adjectives that can describe a novel. And, above all, they’re full of people just like us: the heroes and heroines, the villains, the damsels in distress and knights in shining armour, and often just ordinary folk struggling against impossible odds.
