You may think that locations are not very important parts of a story, merely places where the real action takes place. They can, however, be vital parts of a novel, play, film or television programme - though they have less of an impact in radio dramas it must be said! The right setting can summon up the desired emotion in readers – from the fear inducing castle in Bram Stoker’s Dracula for example, to the friendly, homely yet magical house of Tom Bombadil in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. The right location can do wonders for a story and, equally, the wrong location can hold it back.
This is the third and last quiz in our series on fictional places of literature, film, stage, TV and radio. It will test whether or not you know who lives in Satis House, the name of the island where the treasure of Captain Flint is buried, what is unusual about Laputa and which novel features Ishmaelia. Why not give it a go and see which of these fictional places you can remember?
