Question of the Day

September 18, 2006

If you could visit any book, and live inside of it, meet the characters, etc…. what book would you want to visit? (courtesy of the Question of the Day blog)

This is a tough one. Most of my friends will probably expect me to say Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, but as much as I would love to hang out with Jamie and Claire, I’m not sure that I would really want to visit Scotland during the Jacobite uprising.

And since I’m assuming we should limit answers to fictional characters, I won’t say The Autobiography of Henry VIII by Margaret George.

Which leaves me with two good choices. Firstly, the Harry Potter series by J K Rowling because it’s such a magnificently fantastical world with so many interesting characters. Secondly, Blessed are the Cheesemakers by Sarah Kate Lynch — the setting is lovely and the characters are delightfully quirky; you can’t help but love them all.
