Read Fiction to uncork your Emotions

“Fictional nature does not alter the impact of a tragic story, leaving the reader more emotionally distraught than if they had read the true story instead.”
    
Readers “may choose to read a tragic fictional story because they assume that knowing it was fictional would make them less sad than reading a less dramatic, but true story.”
    
“However, the fictional nature does not alter the impact of the tragic story, leaving them more emotionally distraught than if they had read the true story instead.”

Publishers take note: Readers “tend to believe that true stories will have a greater emotional impact than fictional stories. However, our results suggest that while emphasizing realism may increase sales, it does not necessarily increase satisfaction.”
