Here’s an amusing inquiry: what book would you like to live in? When I was a teenager the answer was easy: Catcher in the rye.
I would love to befriend and perhaps date Holden Caufield. I know many girls feel the same way, but I think the likely scenario is that he would end up hating me. Nowadays, however, I don’t care much about Holden. Not only am I too old for him now, (Hello, D.B.) but that whole teenage angst thing is only appealing to teenagers - or maybe not, see the whole Twilight phenomenon.
My adult choice would be rather cliché too, maybe to live in a Jane Austen book. Balls, tea parties, horseback riding, alternating between the country and Bath. That sounds like a lot of fun. I’m not so sure if I could follow that strict etiquette code though. But then after six novels, I think I got the gist of it.
