I have set my book in the city I currently live in. To me, it's fun to pull places I know into a work of fiction. When my fiance read it, he found that when he read the parts with familiar places, it pulled him out of the story somewhat. When he thought about it, he realized that he has never read a book set in a city that he has lived in. There's a million books set in giant cities like New York, LA, and London. I wonder if people in those cities experience the same thing when they read a book with their city's setting. If any of you have read a book set in a city you've lived in, how did you feel about it? Did you enjoy it, or did it take you out of the narrative a little?
