Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?
(This came to me when reviewing a Jonathan Carroll book - I’m not sure I’d like to live in the worlds of his books.)
I think I might like to live in Mitford, the small town written by Jan Karon, but only if I were one of the much loved secondary characters, although they are all quirky. Main characters have too many complications in their lives. And that's the very reason why I would NOT trust any author to write my life!
As for worlds where I'd rather not live, the first image that came to me was the tea party found in Alice Through the Looking Glass. I certainly would not want to live--or even visit--there!
Another world that would make me shudder would be Ray Bradbury's Farenheit 451. They burned books in that world of the future!
No thank you. I'm grateful for my life, with its complications, struggles, and joys. I'll stay right here.
What choice would you make?
