Booking Through Imagery


btt button
How much do you visualize when you read? Do you imagine faces for the characters? Can you see the locations in your mind’s eye? Or do you just plunge ahead with the story, letting the imagery fall to the wayside?

When I am reading, I visualize a whole movie. Every character and scene plays out in my mind. I have a rich imagination and I also add on to what I am reading! Without imagery, reading goes flat. In other words, it does not make any sense to me if we cannot play it out in our minds!

Yup I'm definitely the same. I can't imagine not being able to visualize the world or characters while I read.

I don't think I do that but if they make a movie, I know if they've got a character or setting wrong.

Sounds like the majority like to visualize the book they are reading. THere is a theatre in my head! LOL! :)

I tend to agree, but I also think it matters how descriptive the book is. http://dawntreader-island2.blogspot.se/2013/09/booking-through-thursday-imagery.html

Yeah, I agree! But it does help if the author is good at giving a vivid description!
