Behind fiction, there is no larger purpose. I’ve seen readers, browsing books like misers over a dragon’s hoard, slyly touching, anticipating. Whatever the reason for the eventual choice, however justified in terms of literary value, the most important subsequent aspect is: was it enjoyed? Did it enthral or transport the reader? For all the studies that have been written on the subject, for all the analyses by self-professed critics, with their themes and symbols, authors of dynamic fiction simply write good stories.
