Todays BTT question is:
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?
Well, I can answer the second part of this question very easily. I certainly would not want to live in the world of A Thousand Splendid Suns. That would absolutely be terrible to live in fear of the fighting all the time and as a woman to be treated with such abuse and disrespect. On the other hand, I think it would be interesting to live in the times of Lonesome Dove or Gone With the Wind. The only drawback there is no air conditioning or indoor plumbing and that would suck, especially given the long gowns women wore in those times! But I would love the horse and buggy days! As far as locales go, I think I'd like to live in Dorothea Benton Frank's low country near the ocean. Pawley's Island or Sullivan's Island. That would be a great place to live! Very laid back. I know for sure I would not want Stephen King to write my story. It would probably be creepy and scary! However, I would trust Sue Monk Kidd to write my story. I love the way she writes, especially in The Secret Life of Bees.
What about you? What world would you like to be in?
