Mystery/Thriller

By: Valerie, Collin, and Nick

Thriller

Thriller is a genre that uses anticipation and suspense. The aim for Thrillers is to keep the reader alert and on the edge of their seat. The protagonist in this genre is usually set against a problem such as an escape, a mission, or a mystery. No matter what book you grab, it will emphasize the danger that the protagonist faces. The tension with the main problem is built on throughout the book and leads to a stressful climax.



Mystery

A Mystery/Suspense book centers on a person of authority, usually a detective, that is trying to solve a crime. The main protagonist uses clues, investigation, and logical reasoning. The biggest element in these books is a sense of “whodunit” suspense, usually created through visual clues and unusual plot twists.
