The action and adventure genre in fiction depicts events or a series of events that happen outside the ordinary course of the protagonist's daily life, generally accompanied by dangerous episodes and physical action. Adventure stories are quick moving, with the pace of the plot being a critical component of mood setting. Action and adventure have been common book themes since the earliest days of fiction writing. In fact, the plots of Medieval romances were comprised of a series of adventures. Action / adventure fiction often overlaps with other genres, such as: war novels, crime novels, sea stories, Robinsonades, and spy stories.
Our titles on adventurers and explorers present the lives and exploits of people who explored or travelled the world in a pioneering way. These include naturalists, sailors, mountain climbers, dog sledders, swimmers, pilots, and underwater explorers. Their activities had profound effects on the dissemination of religion, agricultural techniques, cultural values, disease, and the establishment of colonies throughout the world.
The coming-of-age genre in literature focuses on the growth and development of a protagonist from youth to adulthood. Such stories tend to emphasize dialogue or internal monologue rather than focussing on action, and are often set back in time. Typically, the subjects of coming-of-age stories are teenagers who experience some issues or traumas during their formative years. Classic coming-of-age novels are Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen, and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce.
