Michelle (Spiderg1rl) (spiderg1rl) | 735 comments This may not be the right section but it seemed to best fit.

I don't normally do these quizzes but I was curios just what sort of book I may get

I got Charlotte's Web by E.B. White Charlotte's Web, which I loved as a kid

Empathetic and Family Oriented, E. B. White's CHARLOTTE'S WEB does a lovely job of describing your homey life. Kind and understanding, your are the epitome of empathy, and have a true gift for confiding in others. You tend to be an optimist, or try to be anyway, but have had your fair share of grievances. You are a rare individual in your ability to recognize that no one would be able to appreciate the good times, without having first experienced the bad.

What did you get? And are you happy with the results?


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I don't usually do these things but what the hey.

I got...

An underdog in every sense of the word, Tolkien's LORD OF THE RINGS does a masterful job of playing out your struggles. Though you may not be the most intimidating of individuals, you are not weak - far from it. People are constantly trying to put you down in life, and you always manage to prove them wrong; Sometime even finding yourself on top. Life has taken you some very strange places, and you've developed a taste for the fantastic in the process. You're determined, driven, and have a penchant for the surreal!


Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9111 comments I always do these things.

And then laugh at how wrong they are.

Selfless and Morally Sound, your story unfolds within the heartbreakingly honest pages of Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Tride, true, and honest - yours is a life of helping others. Intolerance and bigotry infuriate you, and you have a very hard time understanding how anyone could think in such a manner. You are driven to do good by others, not only because it's right - but because that's simply who you are.

David Staniforth (davidstaniforth) | 7939 comments Mine should be Kes, but I'll give it a go.

Correct to some extent:

Independent and Brash, Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE could have been written about your life!Your intelligence and stubborn nature has brought you to where you stand today, and to say you surprise others on a daily basis would be an understatement. In your mind, nothing is impossible - And if anyone chooses to stand in your way they simply become another obstacle. You believe you were meant to do great things, regardless of race, sex, or religion - and nothing of the sort will ever stand in your way.


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Tride, Rosemary? Tride?

Love how pretentious they try to be, then...typo!

Michelle (Spiderg1rl) (spiderg1rl) | 735 comments Some interesting results there.

Shame about the typo but I bet they happen and go unchecked all the time on these sort of things


Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9111 comments I've been looking it up trying to work out if I was or not! :/

Kath Middleton | 25093 comments Couldn't do it. The questions are stupid. Usually the answer is 'none of the above'.


message 9: by David (new)

David Staniforth (davidstaniforth) | 7939 comments I have to admit to choosing the closest that wasn't quite right.


message 10: by Bookworm (new)

Bookworm | 3 comments I got charlottes web, is definitely me.
I always enjoy doing these quizzes.


message 11: by David (new)

David Hadley | 4873 comments I got To Kill a Mockingbird, which... meh. I only read the book for the first time a few weeks ago. A bit too po-faced to be me.

Back when I was young and took myself seriously and had an overcoat it would have been something by Sartre or Camus, but I can't take seriousness seriously any more.

I think the Reggie Perrin books would be closer, or Wilt, these days.


message 12: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25093 comments Are you The Wilt Alternative, David?


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Naw. He's spunky.


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments He may want to join this writers group then...

Marc Nash (sulci) | 7481 comments Harper Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird" Which is a shame as I don't like the book all that much.

But they probably didn't have Kathy Acker's "Blood & Guts In High School" in their algorithm

Katy | 3414 comments I got Harper Lee's 'To Kill a Mockingbird'

Could well be. I keep intending to reread the Wilt books at some point.

Actually Milan Kundera's The Joke could be my book, about a bloke who gets in a lot of trouble for telling a joke.

Haha!


message 20: by Richard (new)

Richard Martinus | 646 comments 'Dracula', apparently. I guess that's preferable to 'Diary of a Nobody'.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11355 comments Found that really hard, as so many of them just weren't relevant. Ended up with To Kill a Mockingbird, I suppose it was kind of true.


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments "Waiting for Godot" describes mine right now...


Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments * tells Godot to hurry up*


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Thanks Patti - he's taking forever!


message 25: by Chris (new)

Chris Johnston | 57 comments Pride and prejudice. And yeah, I can see myself in those gowns pretty easily. (Fittingly am just about to go to thee cinema and watch Pride)
