An adventure is an event or series of events that happens outside the course of the protagonist’s ordinary life, usually accompanied by danger, often by physical action. Adventure stories almost always move quickly, and the pace of the plot is at least as important as characterization, setting and other elements of a creative work.
– Critic Don D’Ammassa
That’s a perfect definition of what an adventure novel is all about. Of course, these books are crossovers for other genres, one of the more popular in the last 150 years is the Children’s and Teen Adventure series. The pace works for young readers as the plot moves the story quickly while they fall in love with the protagonists and imagine that they are them.
They are also many examples of crime, sci-fi, western, spy, and mystery series also adding this genre to the mix. While keeping those genres intact, the tone and pace of the plot in hand also makes those adventure books.
