The Book Quiz

Found via Tom Paine (who has, I am very glad to see, not given up this blogging lark)...


You're Jurassic Park!

by Michael Crichton

You combine all the elements of a mad scientist, a brash philosopher, a humble researcher, and a money-hungry attracter of tourists. With all these features, you could build something monumental or get chased around by your own demons. Probably both, in fact. A movie based on your life would make millions, and spawn at least two sequels that wouldn't be very good. Be very careful around islands.

Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

I can't say that I have ever read a Michael Crighton book; however, he's an intelligent chap and at least we agree on climate change...

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."




What a load of bollocks!

"You're The Mists of Avalon!
by Marion Zimmer Bradley
You're obsessed with Camelot in all its forms, from Arthurian legend to the Kennedy administration. Your favorite movie from childhood was "The Sword in the Stone". But more than tales of wizardry and Cuban missiles, you've focused on women. You know that they truly hold all the power. You always wished you could meet Jackie Kennedy."


Difficult to know how that could be more wrong without stating "you are Courage: Eight Profiles" by Gordon fucking Brown.

Thought you'd like to know that the sequel to this quiz, the Book Quiz II, was launched today. Enjoy!
