I’ve finally finished the first vampire diaries book! Which unfortunately took me ages, especially with exams. However, it got me thinking… Apart from social change and context, could you tell what year a book was written? Whether it be from the 1800’s to the 1900’s or even 2016?
I noticed as I was reading The vampire diaries it was written in 1991, 6 years before I was born! Previous to this knowledge I had done little research so thought it was written fairly recent at around 2006 onwards.
Because of my thoughts, I wondered can you tell? Especially because to me, the writing style and language is fluent and modern. Or could it just be that language is slow moving.
What are your thoughts on this? Please comment!
