What Book Are You?

You're Animal Farm!

by George Orwell

You are living proof that power corrupts and whoever leads you will become just as bad as the past leaders. You're quite conflicted about this emotionally and waver from hopelessly idealistic to tragically jaded. Ultimately, you know you can't trust pigs. Your best moments are when you're down on all fours.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Dude, I have no idea what this even means.

You're Siddhartha!
by Hermann Hesse

You simply don't know what to believe, but you're willing to try anything once. Western values, Eastern values, hedonism and minimalism, you've spent some time in every camp. But you still don't have any idea what camp you belong in. This makes you an individualist of the highest order, but also really lonely. It's time to chill out under a tree. And realize that at least you believe in ferries.

I don't actually believe in ferries, but I think they are an underappreciated mode of transportation.

I'm laughing out loud right now.

i'm 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.

"You're Love in the Time of Cholera!
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Like Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the one hand, you've loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff could get you killed."

This is wacky! I wish there were more questions. Who knew that being a detailed, Oprah-hatin', hot climate lovin person could land you a declaration like this??!?

I have to remember to stay away from odd liquids and cut back on my adultery.

Okay, I'm officially repulsed by the "What Book Are You" originators. They are sick in the head.

You're The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!
by C.S. Lewis
You were just looking for some decent clothes when everything changed quite dramatically. For the better or for the worse, it is still hard to tell. Now it seems like winter will never end and you feel cursed. Soon there will be an epic struggle between two forces in your life and you are very concerned about a betrayal that could turn the balance. If this makes it sound like you're re-enacting Christian theological events, that may or may not be coincidence. When in doubt, put your trust in zoo animals.

I don't know about you, but i put my trust in zoo animals.

The test originator's cheap handling of The L,W and W are further affirmations of their head/heart bankruptcy.

You're Anne of Green Gables!
by L.M. Montgomery

Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage
cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash,
honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt
your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with
kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters.
You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.

Just as I expected.

carolineb said...

That's rich, Brad. Rich.

ManUtd17 said...

Don't you mean "Brade" with an "e?"

carolineb said...

Tatum's was so bad we couldn't put it on the comments. Seriously.

brad said...

My first one was bad, too..."Lolita." I thought I best try again. I'm glad I did?

Katie said...

I don't really know Billy (in person at least), but we must have answered all the questions the same...add me to the Siddhartha list. And here I thought I was an Anne of Green Gables.

You're The Poisonwood Bible!
by Barbara Kingsolver
Deeply rooted in a religious background, you have since become both isolated and schizophrenic. You were naively sure that your actions would help people, but of course they were resistant to your message and ultimately disaster ensued. Since you can see so many sides of the same issue, you are both wise beyond your years and tied to worthless perspectives. If you were a type of waffle, it would be Belgian.

Unfortunately, this scares me a great deal. I'm going to choose to view this like a fortune cookie. I actually started the Poisonwood Bible this year and decided not to finish it! What does that say about me?

carolineb said...

I started and tossed that book, too! The book quiz means nothing, don't be scared. You are of one Mind.

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

You believe quite firmly that free will deserted you long ago and far
away. As a result, it's hard to take responsibility for anything. Even though you show
great potential as a leader of a small 3rd world country, the choices are all made ahead
of time. You're rather fond of games involving string. Your fear of nuclear weaponry is
trumped only by your fear of ice

Yes...this is exactly why I order "no ice" at certain fast food establishments....

carolineb said...

Another thing, there are tons of misspellings in these book reviews. Who are these people?!

You're Adventures of Huckleberry Finn!
by Mark Twain
With an affinity for floating down the river, you see things in black and white. The world is strange and new to you and the more you learn about it, the less it makes sense. You probably speak with an accent and others have a hard time understanding you and an even harder time taking you seriously. Nevertheless, your adventurous spirit is admirable. You really like straw hats.

Wow, it's like they came into my mind and read me...
