Writing Quote: Elizabeth George on Setting

Setting not only promotes the reader's understanding of what kind of novel he's reading, it also establishes a feeling that the reader takes into the experience. Setting triggers mood as well. And since one of the objectives of the writer is to stimulate emotional response on the part of the reader, setting is yet another tool that can be used to do this.
