Action Genre Definition – What’s the best definition for the action fiction genre? Books in the action genre usually put more emphasis on exciting action sequences than deep themes and character development. Of course, there are exceptions. Just because a book has exciting car chases or bar fights doesn’t mean it can’t also be intelligent. Books that fall into the action fiction category are usually written—and read—by men. However, many action books and movies have just enough character development and meaning that women can enjoy them as well.
