Across the world, the popularity of crime thrillers is increasing, whether it is a novel or a TV show. The fundamental reason behind this hype seems to be personal interest and, I think it is generally considered as an entertainment by today’s generation.
When assessed critically the key reason behind the surging popularity of these fictions and dramas, of the various factors such as interesting presentation, contemporary significance, and exploitation of the readers’ or viewers’ curiosity, the most tangible is the attitude of the person. To be precise, even if there are a number of such articles published and dramas telecasted, it can be observed that a considerable proportion of population abstain from these. This definitely shows they are interested in some other forms of entertainment, for example comics or romance. However, now the media have grown in such a way to influence the attitude and interest of a person, and therefore it has to be perceived as the cardinal reason for this trend.
It is argued that inclining popularity of these works can negatively influence the society, especially the young generation. There is some truth in that, when some readers or viewers cannot effectively distinguish these from real life. However, I believe most of today’s generation are found successful in that, and they enjoy these works as valuable sources of entertainment to relax and relieve their stress.
To conclude, it is clear that media is to be held responsible for creating an attitude or interest among the people to read or watch crime thrillers, and I think these works are mostly well-tolerated just as an entertainment by the modern society.
