What are the most vivid and inspiring settings you have found in a book? For me, personally, although it's a bit ridiculous- The Hundred Acre Woods (Whinnie-The-Pooh) is by far one of the best settings a writer has created. I find it so intrigueing that the book rarely mentions images that directly explain the woods. Instead it allows the characters to kind of 'spill secrets' about different spots. Mister Owl's tree, Rabbit's hole, and Pooh Bear's home are all well known parts of the hundred acre woods. But none of them are ever explained in detail aside from the actions the character's make within them. And the woods in general are very rarely described. And I find that to be one of the best things a writer has ever done. He leaves the setting open to the reader's (or child's) imagination. Not many writers can do that in a successful way. And to this day I think it's one of th best settings on earth- merely because he sort of let the reader create it.
