Friday Fun: What is the most popular book set in [insert country here]?

Another click-baity article, but with some really interesting findings gleaned from that cesspool of apathy and vitriol GoodReads.

SOME NOVELS ARE inextricably linked to their settings. In many cases, the location feels like a character in itself, a living and breathing protagonist whose interests are intertwined with its human counterparts and whose presence is felt on every page. NetCredit compiled a list of the most popular books set in every country in the world to really highlight which works of literature let their settings shine. NetCredit created an algorithm to give each book a score according to its Goodreads rating (about 13,000 books total) then made a series of virtual bookshelves and maps to showcase the top-scoring book set in each country.
