    In my opinion.. a map is no an essential part of the book.. some might look at it out of curiosity or interest, but can't imagine anyone keeping a track of events based on the map.. however, the map gives that nice taste of owner ship.. that this is not just a story or a tale.. but also a real thing that has geographical boundaries and has actually touched people... if the novel is a fantasy and non real base, it gives more of that sensation as it would allow the writer to create his own world.. characterize it as he sees fit.. and allow the reader to feel that whenever he is opening the book, he is actually opening a portal to another universe or realm.
