An adventure story is about a protagonist who journeys to epic or distant places to accomplish something.
It can have many other genre elements included within it, because it is a very open genre.
The reader is forced to accept that abnormal events such as levitation, telekinesis and talking with the dead take place in the real world.
A fantasy story is about magic or supernatural forces, rather than technology (as science fiction) if it happens to take place in a modern or future era.
Depending on the extent of these other elements, the story may or may not be considered to be a "hybrid genre" series; for instance, even though the Harry Potter series canon includes the requirement of a particular gene to be a wizard, it is referred to only as a fantasy series.
The protagonist has a mission and faces obstacles to get to their destination.
Also, adventure stories usually include unknown settings and characters with prized properties or features.
An action story is similar to adventure, and the protagonist usually takes a risky turn, which leads to desperate situations (including explosions, fight scenes, daring escapes, etc.).
Action and Adventure are usually categorized together (sometimes even as "action-adventure") because they have much in common, and many stories fall under both genres simultaneously (for instance, the James Bond series can be classified as both).For example, in the case of a crime mystery the perpetrator and motive behind the crime are revealed and the perpetrator is brought to justice.Mystery novels are often written in series, which facilitates a more in-depth development of the primary investigator.[It’s like] the scene from Revenge of the Nerds, when Robert Carradine finally woos his beautiful blonde Betty in the moon bounce.He never would have had a chance with her otherwise.This is a list of genres of literature and entertainment, excluding genres in the visual arts.
