to cope with traumatised kids

Any child so weak of character as to need trauma counseling for a fucking book should be encouraged to Darwin themselves out of existence as soon as possible.

Yes, dear.
Because the characters in an imaginary work evoking emotion is not the whole FUCKING POINT.

Simple entertainment plays no part in your reading? A shame, that.

You are right.
I often read for simple entertainment.
I get more emotionally involved with some characters in some stories. I get less emotionally involved with what happens to other characters in other stories.

I find that when I don't care what happens to the characters in a story, I tend to put the book down, and forget to pick it up again. However, you are still right: finding a story amusing and entertaining doesn't mean I would have an emotional crisis if the characters in it died.

But some stories and some characters cause more emotional investment.
And some readers have less of a support network than others.
For people who don't have a sympathetic support network, I'm glad there'll be an option of support available elsewhere.
It's not like people with lots of Harry-Potter fans on their friends-list don't expect to have people to share their feelings over the latest book with.
