What makes an Adventure story?

Mystery stories:

  • centre around a main character/s quest to solve a crime;
  • involve suspense, the antagonist is not revealed until the very end; 
  • draw the reader into the investigation, the author leaves clues through the story;
  • do not mirror real life; and
  • may involve a hero, who as a result of his/her story, is changed by the experience.
