Books are amazing. Why? Because they allow you to live through the experiences of others. As George R.R. Martin once said,
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
True, motion pictures do the same job but since everything is in visual form, it doesn’t offer much room for curiosity and speculation. It’s a book that gives us room to go on a never-ending voyage of imaginations. It’s a book that stirs our curiosity as we progress from one page and one plot to another, left to ourselves, wondering what the next page is about to bring.
The human brain is hard-wired to absorb information in story form, analyze it, and store it away for future use. In this context, the utility of reading thrillers and crime fiction can become handy. They put you in a mental simulator, keeping you engaged and mentally active. As this New York Times article shows, “fiction — with its redolent details, imaginative metaphors and attentive descriptions of people and their actions — offers an especially rich replica. Indeed, in one respect novels go beyond simulating reality to give readers an experience unavailable off the page: the opportunity to enter fully into other people’s thoughts and feelings.”
Secondly, it brings the good out of you—especially crime fiction. Humans are blessed with willpower, and thus, we are capable of doing both good and bad things. But our good side gets a value boost when we read a consequential thriller on crime. For instance, you read a good crime thriller, you question your core values—such as social and legal justice, fair-play, liberty and freedom and human dignity. It gives you a chance to reflect upon your own beliefs and receive renewed strength to carry on.
Last but not least, it offers us avenues to release our stress through. Although it sounds hypocritical, it’s true. A study by the University of Sussex showed just six minutes lost inside a thrilling book could reduce your stress level by as much as 68%. You journey through a tension-filled story but at the end of the story, it’s catharsis—the tension that was building up is finally released. When good finally triumphs evil, you feel vindicated, as if the world comes back into balance.
Below we give you an overview of some of the best thrillers we have in store for you. Read them, get curious and stay inspired.
