Reading this quote makes me think that we fall in love with the imagination that we create: “When reading, we don’t fall in love with the characters appearance. We fall in love with their words, their thoughts, and their hearts. We fall in love with their souls.”
It is true indeed that we don’t see the people and the scenes and we solely rely on descriptions from the author and yet we are transported in a world where we accept what is written and we add the flare of our imaginations.
How magnificent it is for an author that could make us see a world with words and even the lack of it because we contribute to create it in our minds and feelings.
