A Question For All
I'm curious... Generally speaking, given the books released in let's say the last 5 years through the present & reactions to those books, do you feel that messages and experiences are taken more seriously (or given more credit) when released as nonfiction/memoir as opposed to being released as fiction? Which style of writing holds more weight for you when it comes to taking the overall theme of the book (if there is one) to heart? Are you more likely to relate to the book when it's nonfic/memoir or fiction? Regardless of your preferred genre, if Eat Pray Love had been written as fiction book, would its' impact be as far reaching as it has been being a memoir? And what if The Help has been written as a non-fiction/memoir book?
