20.3 - Best Review - Nick KY's task: The Blank Blank

This task is a tribute to Robert Ludlum. Ludlum wrote bestsellers with certain formulas. They were full of confused heroes being chased by sinister forces, there was always time to rest, reflect (and become more confused), and recuperate before the next chase invariably began, and the books had catchy three word titles, the first of which was "The": The Bourne Identity, The Scorpio Illusion, The Tristan Betrayal, The Icarus Agenda, The Scarlatti Inheritance, and many, many more.

For this task read a book (written by any author) that has a three word title, the first word of which is "The." Subtitles should be ignored.

(Note: You may read a book in a language other than English, but the title must translate into English as 3 words, the first word of which is "The." If you choose to do this, please inform the moderators as to the translation.)

Then rest, reflect, and recuperate before your next read inevitably begins.

Yes, possessives and contractions count as one word.

Yes. Possessives count as one word, so your title is three words, the first word being "The."
