Abstract [en]

I have in this thesis looked at the reasons for why boys, in upper school classes, read so little fiction. Several surveys show that boys in their teenage years stop reading fiction. If they read fiction it is only as a school assignment and not as leisure. There has been research done in boys attitude towards literature, but there hasn’t been any research done asking them about why they don’t read fiction

I have interviewed a group of boys about their reasons, and attitude, for why they don’t choose to read fiction on their spare time after school. I have interviewed five boys and from their answers I have made a conclusion.

The main reason to why the boys in my survey chose not to read fiction was that they found it ‘boring’. The reasons to this were that they found the assignments to the books boring and they found the books boring. They said that the assignment usually was to answer questions which were to easy to answer.

I have used Judith A Langers’ reception theories to try to explain why the boys find the task of reading so boring.
