Narratology as a new approach in the contextology has linked to the Formalists theories. Vladimir Propp, Russian Folklorist, is the first person who introduced modern narratology ̦ by studying the Russian vulgar stories in a structuralistic approach. He understood that vulgar stories within a wide variety of narrations were limited to seven kinds of characters or heroes and thirty one functions that follow always after each other in a same progression regularly. His achievements in this research were a new way for narrators that will come after him. In this article, due to the simple structure of the general and folklore stories, four stories "Parichehr", "Yasamin", "Yalda" and "Gandom" by Moaddabpour Poor which are the prominent and bestseller novels in the markets of general and popular books have been chosen as the samples of this study to investigate and compare their abilities with Prop's morphology theory. The final results are similar to Prop' study. It shows that the number of their characters and actions are limited and they come in a similar succession after each other regularly. Indeed, the popular novels along with their heterogeneities and limitations within Prop's Theory have morphological compatible structure.
