    Known Action Driven Stories

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by MilesTro, Dec 13, 2013.

    Anybody know of any Sci-Fi and fantasy books, which are action driven only? I got bored on reading character driven books and I want to read novels that have more action and suspense in them.

    Shade's Children by Garth Nix is fairly action-orientated. The characters are an important part, but it moves at a very fast pace and kept my interest throughout.

    Actually, the same applies to most of Garth Nix's fantasy novels.

    I think all novels are character driven... but John Dies at the End and its sequel, This Book is Full of Spiders are both very fast-paced and interesting books that you might enjoy.

    The Deathstalker series by Simon R. Green. There is so much happening that you pretty much get picked up and dragged from scene to scene.
