Historical fiction is a genre that has happened a long time ago like the World wars and poverty and the freedom.Realistic fiction is a genre that makes the book look really real and believe able the setting has to be real the idea has to be believe able but the characters can be made up.Realistic fiction and Historical fiction is both based on a real setting and real ideas but the characters in historical fiction must be real when the characters in realistic fiction can be made up. I learned that realistic fiction and historical fiction are like non fiction but adds details that makes the book fun and interesting to read!

Chang noi I agree with you because both need to be believe able and I think you are right that you tell that historical fiction are like non-fiction, but I'm not sure that realistic fiction are like non-fiction. It kind of more like only fiction

Changnoi your right but there are some parts that I don't think is true.It could not be right anyways but I thought that some characters in the historical fiction could be made up and the others are real.The realistic fiction is alright but I think you can add examples into your writing.

Realistic fiction is the book that have an event that could happen and believe able. The character could be make and also the events, but not super power. Historical fiction is the book that tell us about the history. It need to be a long time ago like Titanic and World war, but the character can't be make up. The historical fiction have the real story that already happen, but the realistic fiction we could use the fake story.Both of the historical fiction and realistic fiction need to have to real idea for people to believe. Sometimes the historical fiction also come from the non-fiction of history. The writer just learn about the history and make it interesting simple. The realistic fiction the writer create the own event and their own character, but it need to be confirm from the reader that it doesn't have and super power or something that couldn't happen.

Shin I think the same way but you know the character can be made up. Like the titanic movie it's historical. But I am sure that some characters are made up.

Realistic fiction is a type of genre that is believe able. Historical fiction is about the history (a long time ago) and the character can have made up names but the setting needs to be real and the time period. All of the historical fiction is in the past but realistic fiction can be the present like a few months or years ago.

Historical fiction is different from Realistic fiction because the setting can tell the difference. Historical fiction has a time period. Realistic fiction is set in the present. An event in a Historical some have to be true. Realistic fiction must be believable in the setting and characters for example you cannot put a character that could fly except if they have a jet pack and they also can't have any super powers. In a Historical fiction you have to do a lot of research on the time period. Realistic fiction the idea is a moment in your life or an issue.

I think realistic fiction is the scene take place now and it could happen but it didn't happen for example:it was take place in 20012 november and the book is not having magic power and a scene that is made up like in a hell orheaven. Historical fiction is something that was placed in back in the days but never happened for example: a story about a war, but had fake people or maybe a real people in it. That's fiction...but the war take place at the past like it was take place in 1299 and the movement or object need to be decorate or build in the past. The thing that we can see different clearly is realistic fiction take place now but historical fiction take place at the past and if you want to know when you are borrowing or buying a book and you want a historical book you could turn the book back and read at the blurb(some book have it saying which time it take place but some don't) and if you want to look at a realistic book you could do the same but now you are looking for the blurb if the writer write the book that is real for example: the book near to take place now. The book need to be reals. The character can be made up but no magics and some lies property.

I agree with you Thon. In historical fiction has no super powers it must be normal and no paranormal stuff and the setting must be true and have true blurb

I agree with you, you explained it really well and also descriptively. But I'll remind you one thing, did you really mean that it takes place in the 2001 century? You wrote 20012 but I thought it was supposed to be 2012! Just got confused! ;P

A realistic fiction is a genre that makes believe and not real setting & have not real blurb. A historical fiction is a genre that has areal setting and real blurb but not true characters.Books like titanic crossing,world war or Hatchet are historical fiction.

I think that a historical fiction is just like Realistic fiction are alike but, there was one thing I learned and that is that historical fiction is based on a specific time period and a Realistic fiction is not.

ex.the book that I'm reading in class.

A realistic fiction book takes place in a real place/setting, the problems could be fake but it must be believable. The characters could be fake but they must NOT contain any magic powers, sometimes it COULD be based on a real people but the names or some parts of description should be changed. It must have a probability that it will happen and it must happen in the present, not the past or the future. Some of the realistic fictions are based on issues and moments and how the characters responded to them. The historical fiction is more about the histories that happened in the past, for example, the World War, the Native Americans, the Titanic, etc. The settings are usually real but it also has the mixture of some art-of-fiction in it. The characters in historical fiction are sometimes fictional. The characters should not contain any magic powers, just like realistic fiction (well, nobody has magic powers!) . Historical fiction books needs a time period and a specific place like in the 1870s in the Northern Corner of America which is the time of slavery. If you read each of them carefully, you will see the difference and maybe some similarity!

realistic fiction is an issues that are real and is happening in some where in the whole world.the issues must be in the present, like the book called shillo. The character can be made up but the character have to believable.The character can not have any magic or magic sense, have to act like real people.It can be real people too but the name and what they act have to change.Some realistic fiction can be base on real issues and moment.Historical fiction is about what happen in the past like the world war and titanic.The setting is real but sometime people mix fiction in it.The character can not contain magic or magic sense.if you really read my and aother you will how it is the same .

I think that a realistic fiction is some thing that could happen. The setting could be real. The character also can be real and somtime the problem could be real but the guys that important need to change thier name and it take place in the present and no magic power like a character that can fly.A historical fictoin is a type of genre that take place in the past . Something or some one needs to be real.

Tan can you add more details about the Historical Fiction and how about the time period. Realistic Fiction have to be believable too and the setting has to be real and the character has to be made up.

I think it is different by Historical Fiction is about the time period EXAMPLE:from 1969 to 2012 this is the time period for the story. I think Realistic Fiction is the setting is true but the characters can be made up and the story must be believable EXAMPLE: the character is name Jake the setting is at the golden bridge and the tree fell down on Jack's house while there was a rain storm. So I think that it is difference by Historical fiction is while a time period and the realistic fiction is that the story must be believable and the setting must be true and the character can be made up.

Historical fiction is not supposed to be related to the present, it has to be the about the past. And the part that the tree fell down on Jake's house in a rainstorm, I've got the experience on that.

I think realistic fiction is a story that is fiction but it is need to be belevable it is just like a nonfiction but just make up story but not
a fiction character and could change name.Realistic fiction have a
magic power.But i think historical fiction have a setting in historical setting and how it feels like.It takes place in a pirriod of time. historical fiction take place in the past like 1945 or lesser than that not like 2345.
