What book world would you like to visit?

Postby rocklobster » Sun Jul 18, 2010 12:44 pm

As a lover of fantasy, I've often thought it would be great if I could actually visit different fantasy worlds I've read. I'd love it if my closet actually led to Narnia or I could really ride a flume like Bobby Pendragon. Oh, and the world of The Wheel of Time seems neat too. So what are some fantasy worlds in books you'd like to visit?

Jules Verne's 19th century. Definitely.

And not a cyberpunk pastiche of it.

Probably none of them- I have a sneaking suspicion that I'd end up dead. But I suppose that if I could have a guarantee to come back alive, Middle Earth would top my list, as well as the worlds in the Merchant Prince's series (as long as I could be a world-walker, too!).

Rocklobster, maybe we could visit Narnia together! As a huge Narnia fan, that would be my first pick. This is more of a sci-fi world, but I'd love to visit the futuristic world of Uglies! (After Extras, though, for those of you who've read it.)

Narnia? maybe.

Wheel of Time? no people seem to high strung there.

PJ that would be steampunk, correct terms please

Middle Earth would be good

I'd like to go to Discworld though that would be fun

It would hands down be the Discworld for me. Although I'll probably be one of those characters that get killed off in the first few pages with some vague, small connection to the greater myster afoot.

I just thought of another neat world: Harry Potter. Come on, who wouldn't want to go to a school to learn magic?

Hogwarts, definitely. Then Narnia. Then I'll buy a one way ticket to Middle Earth.

Me too, I wanna visit Ankh-Morpork. I have this morbid curiosity to taste one of Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler's sausages inna bun. And if I get killed, at least I'd get to meet Death. I've always thought he'd be kinda fun to hang out with. Plus he could introduce me to Susan. Rrrowr.

Too bad this isn't also Science fiction >,< I would have said anywhere in Ray Bradburys stories, they might not b totally different worlds, but the time is different and they might as well be different worlds with some of the stuff that happens.
Anyways I would say Middle earth and Narnia.

Besides Hogwarts and others I can't think of right now, I would like to enter the world of Maximum Ride.

If I was lucky, I'd get wings and get to fly and -briefly- hang with the Flock.

Then I'd slap Angel a good one.

Then I would become a villain who wasn't the head of a huge, inexplicably rolling-in-money corporation. You know, to spice things up a bit.

In the epic climax, when the do-gooder flock killed me I'd take one of them out. For real. I mean, one of them would actually be dead. Really dead. Not almost-but-not-quite dead. Dead-dead. With a 'D'.

I must say visiting Fahrenheit 451 would be very interesting. With those robot killer dogs and those "special rooms" and all that jazz.

And Salamandastron and Redwall Abbey, most definitely.

I'd also love to visit Pern from Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern. I'd love to see dragons and fire-lizards, although Thread is scary.

<_< Would it be egotistical to say I would go to the world of my own book? I just really want to fly with one of my kind of dragons.

...Though, actually...yeah, Narnia. I want to see Aslan and hear his voice *starts tearing up pathetically*

Hey the Percy Jackson books would be cool too. Just think, you could meet the Greek Gods!
