Fantasy is Dangerous

I came across this really cool take on fantasy and had to share...

I learned things look different by the light of a dragon’s fire. Ordinary things become extraordinary; common problems change shape and become either unusually interesting or utterly insignificant. You really see things, sometimes for the first time. And you don’t forget them when you close the book. That, of course, is what makes fantasy dangerous. – Patricia C. Wrede, author.

That is so cool!

Very descriptive but I think it could apply to all books, not just fantasy. You know the book was good if it stays with you long afterwards and you think about the characters as if they were your friends. Now that's extraordinary writing!
