Booking Through Thursday 8/7/2008

:booking: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?

Hmm. Yes, Heinlein’s Lazarus Long series had a very interesting world, at least as far as my remembrance. I’ve been meaning to re-read it again for quite some time. Of course, that might just be a secret desire to meet Lazurus, rather than a real affinity with his world.

And I would most definitely not like to live in the world Heinlein created for Stranger in a Strange Land. So, I guess we have now learned that Heinlein creates believable worlds, at least to me. Though I didn’t care over much for the world in The HandMaid’s Tale either.

Umm, I took world to mean ideology as well as physical location.

Who would I trust to write my life? Audrey Niffenegger, no question.

  1. I think that you were correct in the reading of the prompt; some are going off track a bit by using just the setting, not the world of.

  2. Handmaid’s Tale is one of my favorite books. Atwood does such a good job creating such a horrifying world. I think one of the worst things is how it is set in a near future, so Offred’s old life was just like our world.
