"Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one." -Terry Pratchett

I was chatting to someone the other day and I mentioned that I love fantasy. And this person said to me they’ve tried to get into fantasy many times, but always found it so boring and preferred real life. Of all the things they could have said, I expected this the least. How can fantasy possibly be boring? I get that it’s not for everyone. But boring? More boring than real life? I mean… it’s got everything that real life has, plus magic and awesomeness. How can that be more boring? I, of course, said as much and suggested perhaps they just hadn’t tried good fantasy. But that person just said “No. I’ve tried. I simply lack the imagination for it.”
