The Book Quiz

Doing the tag surfer thing a bit ago, I ran across a blog talking about The Book Quiz. So I took it, with the following result:


You’re Night!
by Elie Wiesel
You’ve had some truly horrific experiences, especially recently, and you can barely stand to discuss them. While many people are afraid of getting close to you because of this, it has also built a fascination and admiration of you that is hard to rival. You know that things are about to get better soon, but that the trauma will be impossible to forget. You are short, but powerful.

Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

  1. Vivian, I can’t believe I am commenting on your blog, (not being a blogger and all) but I took the test and here are the results:

    “You’re To Kill a Mockingbird!

    by Harper Lee
    Perceived as a revolutionary and groundbreaking person, you have changed the minds of many people. While questioning the authority around you, you’ve also taken a significant amount of flack. But you’ve had the admirable guts to persevere. There’s a weird guy in the neighborhood using dubious means to protect you, but you’re pretty sure it’s worth it in the end. In the end, it remains unclear to you whether finches and mockingbirds get along in real life.”

    The funny part about “the weird guy in my neighborhood” is that my US Congressman and my Virginia State Senator are my neighbors!

    More importantly, I was born and raised in Norfolk, a long, long time ago.

    Thanks for the Book Quiz link.

  2. Carole – this blog is not for bloggers, it’s for the public at large! Your comments are certainly welcome.

    Oh – and about the “weird guy” in your neighborhood – care to share who? 😉

  3. Looks like I’m the Buddha…

    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.

  4. Hmm, very interesting. I must say i like the book in question:

    You’re Catch-22!
    by Joseph Heller
    Incredibly witty and funny, you have a taste for irony in all that you see. It seems that life has put you in perpetually untenable situations, and your sense of humor is all that gets you through them. These experiences have also made you an ardent pacifist, though you present your message with tongue sewn into cheek. You could coin a phrase that replaces the word “paradox” for millions of people.

  5. I guess….

    You’re Roots!
    by Alex Haley
    While almost everyone agrees that you’re brilliant, no one knows quite how to categorize you. Some say that you’re a person with an amazing family tree. Some say that you’re just a darn good storyteller. Others say that you’re both and don’t much care where to draw the line. What is known is that your people have been through a great number of trials and that you are where you are because of hard work. You have nothing to lose but your chains.

  6. Either Alex Haley’s Roots, or Barbara Tuchman’s Guns of August.

    You’re The Guns of August!
    by Barbara Tuchman
    Though you’re interested in war, what you really want to know is what causes war. You’re out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they really are. Nevertheless, you’re always living in the past and have a hard time dealing with what’s going on today. You’re also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in the world. A fitting motto for you might be “Guns do kill, but so can diplomats.”

    I’m okay with that.

  7. 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.

    Hmmm…I do love those bunnies

  8. Vivian,
    I meant to tell you earlier how impressed I am with this quiz. It is also telling me a great deal about our friends — bloggers and commenters too (Carole 🙂 ). Thanks for sharing this and thanks for sharing your results.

  9. I wasn’t all that impressed by the other quizzes sadly. The animal one had me as a komodo dragon and a mongoose… which is cool by me as far as the animals themselves are concerned, but the discriptions just didn’t seem to fit nor the questions as satisfying for the results.

    Animal Quiz = interesting and fun but not as good as the book quiz.

    The rest = kinda blah

    Perhaps others will find them more fun.
