DP Daily Prompts: The Great Divide
When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?
Most of the time fiction helps me relax, provided the story interests me. Recently I read two books both were fiction,one was about a dog’s journey and the second one was about heart beats.
After reading these two books I felt great, I couldn’t help thinking about the dog, how faithful he was, the other one was the story of two wonderful people, how they met, their affection towards each other was magical.
Next I read a non-fiction, it was about the life of a little boy, how poor his family was, how he managed to get adopted when he was lost. It was amazing to know he was only five years old when he was adopted, was taken to Australia by the couple.
His life with the Australian couple was completely different from the one he had when he was with his birth mother and his real siblings. This boy proved though he was living a luxurious life in Australia he did not forget his birth mother and his siblings.
It took him twenty-five years to find his mother and siblings.
The best part is, it was written by the boy himself after he grew up.I like both fiction and non-fiction.
