message 1: by Moira (new)

Moira Russell ....hunh, I would think of Fifth Business as being 'set in' Canada far more than London. 'World of Wonders' has a long London interlude....


message 2: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Aug 20, 2010 05:25AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) And "An Instance of the Fingerpost" is set in Oxford, not London ... and the overwhelming majority of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is set in Dartmoor!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Is "literature" supposed to be construed as fiction?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Hmm. Jessica, you created the list -- were you thinking of novels and short stories only, or also (for example) of plays set in London and nonfiction books about London?

I agree. Much as I want to vote for Fifth Business , I won't for that reason.


message 6: by Chris (new)

Chris Gager Jane Eyre was set in London?????


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Would anyone like to speak in favor of Jane Eyre? Because I can't remember it being set in London, either. And I'll remove it if someone doesn't make a good argument for it.


message 8: by Julia (new)

Julia Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?? Hogwarts was not in London - they took a train from London to the school.


message 9: by Chris (new)

Chris Gager Well ... the logic of language, applied to the wording of the list's title, means that pretty much all of the Potter books were "set in London" for at least for some of the doings in each one. IMHO ...

Erin Chris wrote: "Well ... the logic of language, applied to the wording of the list's title, means that pretty much all of the Potter books were "set in London" for at least for some of the doings in each one. IMHO..."

True, I would clarify the description to say books set primarily in London or something to that effect.
