The Art Of Fiction (not Henry James’ but my own shortest version)

Investigative books, or psychological thrillers for that matter, make us over think the clues written to help solve a certain puzzle or equation that the characters haven’t known of yet just to get ahead of them as though we were actually part of the story; as though we were a spectator ready to jump and make good decisions anytime to help them better their situations; as though solving its own mystery would make any difference—but it doesn’t — which probably leads us to a mild case insanity and laugh at ourselves how seriously and ridiculously we are taking the story, completely forgetting they are stories made up by the author’s silly mind. We’ll laugh how a single book could screw or win our emotions. And I think that’s the greatest power of novels.
