Challenge Link-Up Post: Classic From a Place You've Lived

Please link your reviews for the Classic From a Place You've Lived here. This is only for the Classics From a Place You've Lived category. This includes any classic set in a city, county, state, or country in which you've lived, or by a local author. Examples for me would include Giant by Edna Ferber (Texas); Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser (Chicago); and Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann (Germany).

If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section. If you like, you can include the name of your blog and or/the title of the book in your link, like this: " Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (Cross Creek)."


  1. Just finished Years of Grace set in Chicago. Interesting read more for the history than for the actual characters.

  2. Sorry Karen I misspelled my first Link, would you delete it. Whatever else this book does it does give you a nice tour around some familiar streets. Thank fully I was able to walk them in a leisurely way and encountered no dead bodies!

    1. No problem! I still haven't read this one but it's on my list!

  3. I read No Longer Human, by Dazai Osamu - I used to live in Tokyo as a student. I did enjoy it and am glad to have crossed it off my list, but I did think it deserves a new, fresher translation.

  4. Linked to my review of 'Colour Scheme' by Ngaio Marsh, set in NZ.

  5. Finished A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter. :)
