What book are you?

Wow. My friend, Sue, posted this challenge on her blog Close to the Sun. Go to the Blue Pyramid and take the book quiz. You need answer only six seemingly random questions and then you'll discover which book you are! Such fun!

I am Prufrock and Other Observations.

Eric is Watership Down.

You're Prufrock and Other Observations!

by T.S. Eliot

Though you are very short and often overshadowed, your voice is poetic and lyrical. Dark and brooding, you see the world as a hopeless effort of people trying to impress other people. Though you make reference to almost everything, you've really heard enough about Michelangelo. You measure out your life with coffee spoons.

You're Watership Down!

by Richard Adams

Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

Now I'm suspicious! I ended up with Prufrock too.... And Craig got Watership Down!

Marie said...

Well, I would say that you are I are similarly wired, but I hide my dark and brooding nature behind a perky smile. And my cynicism doesn't extend to my carefully-chosen friends nor my hand-raised family.

The Watership Down analysis fits Eric completely. Probably Craig as well.

Maybe the four of us should go for drinks. You and I can be lyrical and dark while Craig and Eric challenge our assumptions. Could be fun!

I ended up with Siddhartha at first, and then on my second try, I ended up with Watership.

You all can sit in the bar wearing black and talking about rabbits while I, Lolita, stalk you from the corner! :-)

Marie Walden said...

Sue, Lolita is my absolute favorite book in the world. And, no, I don't agree that it makes you obsessed with sex. I think it goes much deeper than that.

So I'm jealous. I don't want to be dark and broody. I want to wear saddle shoes and short pleated skirts.

Marie Walden said...

Swiss Miss, I don't believe that re-testing is allowed. You'll always be Siddhartha to me...which is a good thing.

Swiss Miss said...

Don't you just love people who read! I know I do. Hope to see you soon, Miss Marie. We should get to know each other better.

Marie said...

Swiss Miss, I DO love people who read good stuff.

And, yes, let's get together very soon and chitchat. Maybe we could start a smart chicks book club and read great things. Then, of course, we'd have to get together for wine and discussion every month.

Well, as to be guessed, I ended up as The Sound and the Fury!
by William Faulkner.
Strong-willed but deeply confused, you are trying to come to grips with a major crisis in your life. You can see many different perspectives on the issue, but you're mostly overwhelmed with despair at what you've lost. People often have a hard time understanding you, but they have some vague sense that you must be brilliant anyway. Ultimately, you signify nothing.

Well, that is that. I think this is my first post to your blog, Marie, but given the summation above, I wouldn't expect significance.

So I'm attempting brevity, though really it has me talking to myself too much.

Marie said...

See, 13th, I had you figured out right from the beginning. I knew you were brilliant despite your protestions to the contrary!

I disagree that you signify nothing. At a minimum, you present an interesting challenge to even those of us capable of abstract thought. You are an elusive poet. And you know I adore you.
