BTT – In Other Worlds…

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?

I would love, love, love to live in Harry Potter’s world, or in Far World (see my review later this month), however I think I would prefer to wait until the end of the series so there is resolution in that whole battle between good and evil business.

Places I would not want to live…   The worlds I mentioned previous as long as dark forces roam around committing havoc.

The problem is, I’m not sure that I would trust any author to write my character.  The thing is, authors like to write interesting books.  Interesting requires conflict.  Lots of it.  I would prefer not to seek out extra conflict by being a character, there’s enough of it in like as it is!

  • I am doing a review of Farworld later on this month too!!! I would be interesting to live in Farworld especially being non magical. Nothing could effect you. Just think someone like Lord Voldemort wouldn’t have been able to harm Muggles.

  • Have you started it yet? I finished it in one day and (future review spoiler) loved it!

  • I agree – authors are not trustworthy. With my luck, they’d write me out by the end of the first chapter!

    That’s a good point about conflict…I think I’d just want someone who could capture my humanness, my quirkiness, and bring it all together in the end. John Irving is a top choice.

  • I’d love to live in Harry Potter’s world too, but definitely after Voldemort’s demise. And I agree, conflict is the problem with any wish to live in a book, there’s plenty of it already!

  • There is no author I’d trust; they like to create too many problems.

  • That is great about not wanting to invite an author’s conflict into your life! :)

    I would want to give Henry VIII’s world – so long as I could leave at any time. I don’t think I’d want to be trapped there. I would just like to meet all of those people in person.

    I think I would like to live in Francie Nolan’s world in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Even though she lived in poverty, I loved the strength that her world required. I got lost in Smith’s descriptions of simple activities like sitting on the fire escape, going to the library, and drinking coffee – how magical those moments were to Francie, something to be treasured rather than taken for granted. There was a richness and toughness of character in Francie’s world, and she brought Brooklyn to life for me. Without Francie, I don’t know that I would have wanted to live there! The character really made the place in that novel.

  • I kept seeing the BTT segments at your blog that I finally decided to join and write up my own. Thank you for that!

    I agree with you about the authors creating conflicts, I don’t think I’d mind it though if I had a super power. hehe.

  • I am visiting Far World right now and I can see why you would want to live there. :-) I would love to talk with the trees.
