I am not a big fan of this genre because it turns to be too confusing. Superhighway is an example of that!

I love reading fantasy genre. It creates a whole new world for the reader. The reason I love reading fantasy books because it helps me to escape reality. These books keep me on the edge as anything is possible in fantasy.

I usually don’t like sci-if/fantasy that much but this book sounds really interesting. I enjoyed reading the reviews and have added it to my want to read list.

I like Sci-fi/Fantasy because I think it allows us to think outside the box and outside our normal routines. Sometimes I don't like it because it can seem really out there and far-fetched, but overall I do enjoy the genre's as a whole.

I love the Fantasy genre, but Sci-fi is a little trickier. Overall, I think it depends on the author's writing itself. If he is able to explain foreign concepts and bizarre settings in a clear and imaginable manner and still maintains some forms of logic, I will find the book enjoyable.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

I love a book that will take me away. The suspension of disbelief is a great concept!! I enjoy a lot of different genres, but I think my favorites are historical fiction and sci-fi. Sometimes cozy mysteries are fun, too.

Post by Tzara Drusak »

My first choice will always be sci-fi and fantasy when looking for a light read. There is almost always a facet of ridiculousness that draws the reader in or some absolutely novel idea that makes the book a wonderful read. I love taking my imagination to new lengths, and find that reading books in this genre is the perfect way to do so.
And in the end, we were all just humans... Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.

I personally love sci-fi and fantasy books, however I don't understand why they are always lumped together. They are have different novel arcs and general formats.

I do really like these genres. I think it is an easy way to leave reality and lose yourself in a fantasy. It is a great break from the real world.

I love sci-fi. Any subgenre of fantasy really. I like that there's basically an unlimited set of avenues you can take the story and there are no rules to what's possible. I do enjoy other genres but there are sometimes when I want my characters to go on a very unrealistic adventure.
