Books in the genre of contemporary fiction 

Contemporary fiction addresses those storylines that take place in modern realities. This is one of the most important, ancient, and popular genres of literature, and is not going to let go of this position any time soon. That is because so many people like to read contemporary fiction. These novels, like no others, are very close to reality and life; they are often earnest and sincere. Some of these works have been inspired by real events or are simply based on them; others are products of their authors' imaginations. But what is absolutely certain is that books in this genre are interesting to read because they act as a filter of reality; they present us with the most interesting stories of our life. And that is something that will always be important.

Features of books in the genre of contemporary fiction 

You can talk for a long time about how relatable, truthful, and reliable contemporary fiction books are. But after all, the peculiarity of this genre is something else: it is extensive and immense; it allows you to absorb all the best from the literature of realism. After all, these books can hide anything: philosophical stories, drama, romance, action, intriguing detective stories, humorous novels with satire, youth prose, and even romantic erotica.
Reading modern prose, we can see our modern world through the prism of the author, who decided to tell us something. Moreover, these plots and stories are both lessons and moral quests to us. But what is really good is that contemporary fiction is written in a simple and understandable language; therefore, while in this section, you can calmly fully dive into any book. These works are read easily and carelessly; although, there is plenty of food for the mind in them. You will find something to think about after reading, if, of course, you wish.
