    I would live in THE 13th APOSTLE as Micah, Jesus' 13th apostle.

    I would be in the Stravaganze series and I would be . . . . . Arriana. She seemed cool. :p

    Nyaralathotep out of the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft.
    The ultimite prankster... anyone know Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' novels will know him as 'The man in black', or 'Randall Flagg'.

    Most definitely the Bourne Identity, as Jason Bourne.

    Everyday brings something new and could take me far away from a place where everyday is basically the same.

    Also, it would be awesome to be a master of Jason-Bourne-Itsu.

    Hmm... tough question..
    I think I'd like to live in one of the Harry Potter novels. Preferably one of the earlier before Voldemort came back for real *g* I don't know as who though. Probably Fred or George because of their carefree approach to everything and everyone.

    I'm going to have to say Uglies - and Tally Youngblood. Scott Westerfeld built a very unique and exciting world in this novel.

    hmm... i have three choices. I can't choose between them.

    I would want to live in either The Count of Monte Cristo as Haydee or in the Dresden files as Murphy or in Lord of the Rings as Eowyn.

    The magical cyber world of Artemis Fowl, for sure. And, of course, I'd have to be Artemis.

    The Harry Dresden series, and I would be Harry. Or maybe Butters.
    Or, if I'm having a really bad day, Sue.

    Any of the Star Wars novels - preferably as a new character all my own. Or if I had to pick, Han Solo.

    Can't believe no one has mentioned this... Middle-Earth of course! And I would be a Hobbit or a Numenor. :)

    Probably the book Wizard and Glass (Book 4 of The Dark Tower) The first time i read this book, it felt as if i was pulled into it. Stepped every step, breathed every breath myself.

    Roland's character is this felt very real and i felt his emotions toil. So id choose hm.

    When i finished this part of the story i felt like i lost something.

    Crap, this isn't going to be good. I hardly read anything other than Dystopian novels :(

    Um... I think I would live in one of the Drizzt novels, probably in Waterdeep. It seemed pretty free of crime in the novel.

    Can I cheat and be from my own stories? It is a fun place without being too scary, like some of the fantasies I read- heh. I wouldn't mind being most of the characters, really, but if I were to choose, I think I would be Solace (probably why I chose my screenname...).

    Sanathaer out of Ian Irvine novels, preferably before the Rift was broken by Lilian. It's such a cool world. And I'd probably by Lilian actually. He's a chronicler, and prefers reading or writing rather than fighting.

    Middle-earth or Harry Potter's world. Typical, I know, but I don't think I've ever really longed for fictitious places like I have those. They evoke the most childlike giddiness in me. ;)

    Yeah I forgot about Harry Potter. That would be cool. And by the way Adelaide, your name is the name of my favorite songs. Adelaide by Anberlin.

    Dr Robert Neville in 'I Am Legend'.

    Don't ask me why :)

    Alternatively, Odd Thomas in the book of the very same name.

    Octavia Butler's world of the Oankali in Xenogenesis. I would love to belong to an Oankali family.

    Only if I can be Butler :D

    Ooh. Or maybe the zombie-infected world of World War Z. Pitting myself against hordes of the undead would be the ultimate challenge!
