Venetian mask Ken Kesey quote

I found this quote very funny for the visual I got from the words. I imagined the words on the page pealing themselves off the paper and combining to create the scenery, the props and the characters. And as they formed they began to take shape and act out the story.

There are a handful of novels that become real as I read them. What novels do the words get up and move for you?


Keep on writing.

  1. in my childhood it would have to be Enid Blyton books, any one of them had that effect. in my youth I read autobiographies and war stories, the most vivid and real was Idi Amin’s notorious reign. If I were to say purely fictional then it would probably be my most recent read – Fredrik Backman, his characters come up at me because they are so ordinary they are real.

  2. You’re right – the visual image here is hilarious. My all-time favourite author, who never failed to bring characters to life, Is Dorothy Dunnett who, sadly, died in 2001. Her series of books about Francis Crawford of Lymond brought the characters to life (although it takes a while to get used to the 16th century Scottish dialect!). DD had the knack of making readers laugh in one scene and cry in the next. A roller-coaster ride of emotions.
