As a young boy I was always interested in reading. I loved to read. It allowed me the chance to escape the world and run off to a new place. Reading was the way that I learned and the way that I was able to figure out how the world operated. During all of that reading I was always fascinated with the many different styles of writing. I was older once I learned the word literature. As I grew I learned that there are many different types of literature that I enjoy reading. All of this literature is exciting in its own way and they all offer different types of enjoyment. I love to read horror stories. I enjoy reading history novels. I also enjoy a good mystery. I have never been a fan of the trashy romance novels however. So with that being said lets take a few moments and explore the many different types of literature and what they have to offer.
Horror stories, such as those written by Edgar Allen Poe, are perhaps my favorite. Contrary to popular opinion it takes a great deal of skill to write this type of genre. Any person can write a story and call it scary but it takes an exceptional writer to write a horror story and make it compelling and interesting. Poe was able to do just that. Mystery novels are also a great example of literature gold. They require a great mind and an even better ability to weave a story through twists and turns. Of all the genres that literature holds, history requires the best writer but the least skill. The history has already been written all you have to do is compile it. So that is how I feel about literature as a whole.
