Katie | 2369 comments Can you guess books just from a single sentence synopsis? See if you can figure them out.

As always, please use spoiler tags for your answers! And don’t link to the books or they will be shown on the right of the page, and we’ll have to delete your comment. 

1. A mad scientist creates an intelligent but hideous creature and regrets it.

2. A poor family of sharecroppers is forced to leave their home during the Great Depression.

3. An old sea captain obsessively seeks vengeance on a white whale.

4. A strange murder in The Louvre museum in Paris gets two academics caught up in a deadly religious mystery.

5. A middle-aged man becomes dangerously obsessed with a young girl.

6. Young people compete in a twisted and deadly competition for the entertainment of the rich elites.

7. An escaped convict becomes an upstanding and wealthy citizen and father, while being tailed by a ruthless police inspector.

8. A rich man hires a goth-punk hacker and hardened journalist to solve his niece's long ago disappearance.
