Is it only me

When I read a book I always have to go on to Google earth to see where the author is setting the scene

when they tell you they are driving down a road to some place I look to see where it actually goes because...... now this might upset some

they are telling fibs and these places do not exist

I haven't done that, although I may do now!
I do check up on some historical facts sometimes, I like vintage crime.

Re: Is it only me

Yes, it's only you apparently. Digressing slightly, what really annoys me is reading on a book cover all the blurb about the author, their brilliance, their past titles and so on but bugger all about the plot of the actual book.

Re: Is it only me

Fiction is just that, fiction. That's why you can't find the place at times. Just like elves and fairies don't exist. But they can in fiction. Or like murder is not fun, but there are books about it and people seem to get off on reading about it.

Re: Is it only me

Elves and fairies are not real?...that's upset me now

Actually van I do that sometimes too specially if there is a building that's pivotal in the plot or a place, I check facts too especially in historical novels looking at characters and taking it a step further into when and how they died or remarried that sort of thing...

You have to be careful though because it sometimes ruins the plot for you

Elves and Sprites exist right enough. They are types of Upper Atmospheric lightning!
