Just what is a Thriller or Suspense story?
Most authors and readers agree that the sudden rush of emotions, the excitement, sense of suspense, apprehension, and exhilaration that drive the narrative, are what characterize a Thriller. This can be subtle with highs and low or sudden breakneck pace. A Thriller should thrill!
The Thriller is a genre of fiction in which ordinary, everyday heroes pit there wits against evil villains, who are probably determined to destroy our hero, his country, or the stability of the world. This type of story describes high stakes, non-stop action, plot twists that surprise and enthuse, settings that are both vibrant and exotic, and an intense pace that never lets up until the final revelations and dénouement.
Thriller fiction can sometimes be referred to a suspense fiction. This type of literature characteristically demands fast-paced plots, with numerous action scenes, and limited development of characters.
