Sometimes, when reading a book, I wish I could live in the book, be part of the world I'm reading about or be a character in the book. Have you ever felt like that?

When reading one of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern books I longed to have a dragon and be one of the riders.

What book or character makes you want to leap onto the page to experience it first hand?

I wouldn't mind stepping into Harry Dresden's shoes. Going on an adventure with Agent Pendergast from Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child's series would be likewise cool (despite the good chance of not making it out in one piece :). Oh screw it, if we're not caring about survivability then I'd say throw me into Jurassic Park so I could marvel at some live dinosaurs.

Did I forget to mention that we would be invulnerable? Our survival is guaranteed!

I think I'll join you in Jurassic Park. :)

Probably The Time Machine or a Dr. Who book so that I could travel back to 1889 Chicago to discover the truth about two deaths and what really happened, then to other genealogy research brick wall periods for answers. Plus it would be fun to meet some ancestors and see what they were really like.

And wouldn't mind being the heroine of a classic type of love story with a HEA and without major angst . I just can't think of the one in the back of my mind at the moment

Can we get maimed? That would make a difference.

John Carter of Mars.

Or the Kama Sutra

Either one will do.

Wouldn't it be great to be able to travel in a time machine?

Only if you want to. ;)

I loved the Barsoom books when I was a wee Rocker. They were a great fantasy for young boys dreaming of adventure, daring-do, princesses, etc. A Barsoomian could make his own way in the world with determination and courage and not be held back by expectations or society.

As far as the Kama Sutra goes, as an Old Rocker, at least half of the book would be impossibe, no matter how determined one was.

Maiming would be OK, as long as we could recover with only a good scar.

Scars can be rather dashing on men. As long as there aren't too many of them.

"Maiming would be OK, as long as we could recover with only a good scar " and "karma sutra..as an Old Rocker...at least half the book would be impossible "

Solution : a vampire book?

Vampires repair themselves . They don't age , staying at age that they were made vampires , so the Karma Sutra would work in a good vamp story, provided vamp didn't require a walker and viagra before he was turned.

Must be mid-western women d/ving the Kama Sutra. Sorry for thinking that but that's the assumption. I think it's a GREAT idea! And you'd be IN the book, so all things are possible.

My other choice would be any Heinlein book.

Great idea, Cluny. He can be "Old Vampire Rocker."

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012 1:22:20 PM PST
It would be fun trying, even if one were to discover that it was, indeed, impossible ...

You always manage to come in for the naughty parts, don't you? ;)

I guess timing is everything.

Practice, Old Rocker, practice ; )

But of course ... :-)

So I've been told ...
