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 love to read in the world created by J.K. Rowling's in the Harry Potter books.  Of course, it would be on the condition that I could be friends with Harry and/or a good wizard.   I would not want to live in the world created in the book, A Brave New World.   If I were a character, I would trust either Barbara Kingsolver, Ruth Ozeki, or Zadie Smith to write my story.  All three of the authors are good at writing about different cultures and worlds while making the characters realistic.
