The Book Drum World Map takes classic novels and marks where the heroes and heroines lived on a map - you can see how close they lived to each other, or how close you are to them!
How close did Bridget Jones and Fanny Price live? Where in Africa did Lord Sebastian Flyte end up? What is a Russian doing in Cambridge? Where did Robinson Crusoe come ashore? And just how far would the Snow Goose have to fly to reach Brave New World's lighthouse? The answers are all here!
Book Drum contributors have been assembling a wealth of fascinating material about the world's best books. Now, by tagging each of the book Setting places with latitude and longitude coordinates, we've been able to plot them all on a single world map. No one has ever done this before.
The Map makes use of a Google plug-in (which you may be asked to install). This does not operate perfectly in all browsers, so if you have any technical difficulties, try a different browser or check you have the latest version of your browser.
