Every so often, a scholar or a group of scholars within a discipline reveals research so groundbreaking or so pioneering, the discipline, at least momentarily, collectively pauses to consider its implications. A lively debate typically ensues; responses papers are crafted; issues in journals are dedicated to the new concept; conference panels form around the idea; and new generations of scholars are inspired, immortalizing in some form the revolutionary research initially presented. Over the last forty years, several trailblazing concepts in Communication Studies followed this trajectory. One such concept is the Narrative Paradigm.
The story in the novel is perfect with a great plot, convincing characters, and a suspenseful build up to the climax. You have been drawn into the story and it is almost like you are there, living along side the characters. You understand their background, their trials, and their joys. The story brings to life something from long ago that may or may not be fictional.
