This Week's TTT is a really tricky one, because I think the vividness of a books setting directly correlates with how much you actually like the book. For example, if I am loving a book, and it's setting is simply a high school, I literally picture it happening in my old high school, as I can walk the halls in my mind and really feel part of the books setting, and to me that is what vivid is. Conversely, you can have a book set in a far away fantasy land, but if I'm just not into it, well it's not vivid to me. So, with that being said, I will try to find a balance between the two:
1) Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Hunter S. Thompson
This is probably the craziest, most vividly unbelievable book in the world. If you can't get into the book, at least watch the movie, as they did an amazing job on it. It is out of this world (like, literally).
2) Modelland - Tyra Banks
For what Tyra lacks in decent writing skills, she makes up for in imagery, even when it doesn't make a damn bit of sense. I don't blame you if you can't get through this book, but Ms. Tyra has one vivid imagination!
3) The Iron King - Julie Kagawa
This book has an amazing setting, with each Fey territory having different descriptions, sometimes I just took a moment to stop reading, close my eyes, and just try to picture it. The ice, the gardens, the iron, all the areas in the books seemed amazing.
4) The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
It may have helped that I have seen quite a few movies from this time period, however the imagery and scenery in this book is very vivid, I even got chills during some of the descriptions of Germany while reading this novel.
5) Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland - Lewis Carrol
How can you not think the world created for this book is vivid? It is amazingly so. I wasn't a huge fan of this book, because it makes absolutely no sense at all, but the world it is set in is very, very vivid.
6) I was going to try and leave this out, because I guarantee it will be on almost everyone's list, but it's not fair to Ms. Rowling not to acknowledge her amazingness.
Everything Harry Potter is amazingly vivid. I can easily be absorbed into this world of magic.
7) Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert
For a book I didn't enjoy, again, the setting is beautifully described. My wanderlust can most likely be attributed to reading this novel.
8) Animal Farm - George Orwell
Maybe it's because I have had to read it for school twice, and we analyzed it to death, but I can always vividly picture this world of talking farm animals taking over.
I can't think of anymore! I tried to be somewhat creative and try to use some that maybe not everyone would have thought of right away, but I guess I will have to hop around and check out other people's. I'm sure I will see tons that I agree with.
