I'm sure many people will say they want to live in magical places but that's not for me. Too much peril. I don't want to be eaten by a dragon or turned into a pumpkin. I prefer the world of Austen. Balls, visiting friends, and long walks in the country. Sounds good to me. Plus, if I was the heroine, I'd always end up with the perfect man. One who doesn't leave dirty underwear on the floor. So maybe I'd have to put up with an annoying relative or two and there are always money issues in Austenland but nothing I can't handle.
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 would not want to be in any dystopian novel, like The Handmaid's Tale or Fahrenheit 451. No, no, no.
As for writing my life story, definitely not Stephen King (no rabid dogs or horrifying aliens please) or Margaret Atwood (gloom, gloom, gloom). I think I'd like Carol Shields to do it. She was so good at making the ordinary extraordinary. And I'm pretty ordinary but I think she could liven it up.
