Look, look; I’m a book

Which book am I? (via Imperceptibility)

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

This was a good quiz ’cause it didn’t have very many questions and apparently has 64 different answers. Tell me which book you are, and I’ll tell you if I agree or not.

Oh, and the phrase to replace the word "paradox" is "argle-bargle." I expect to hear people dropping it into conversation posthaste.

    I took it, and I am The Mists of Avalon. Fairly accurate except for all the points of the novel they missed in their description. Thanks for the link to the quiz!

    Cry, the Beloved Country. Hmm. I think I read this in college but I don’t remember it at all. I also think Paul re-read it recently….I’ll have to ask him about it.
    I never read Catch-22, but it’s been on my “I should read that” list for years. 🙂
    A spelling bee and pizza date sounds fab! Would this coming Monday work? I’ll have to check with my family….we’re doing church camp this week (and I’m playing hooky today).

    I’m Siddhartha. But I’m still not gonna read it.

  4. Mimi says:

    I can totally see you as Catch-22, and I’m so jealous you and Elizabeth are having pizza together – enjoy!

  5. Herm says:

    Weird. I am apparently Dune. I’m not, though–I’m really Anne of GG.

    Love in the Time of Cholera???? I hope my children don’t see this.

    Whoa, you get different questions depending on how you answer them. I tried it twice, because I couldn’t decide whether I was long-winded or concise. (Though, the way this is going, I suspect I may be long-winded.) The second time I came up as The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

  8. 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.
    Interesting. I had a guy bring me a copy of this on a first date once and then he wanted to quiz me extensively at the end of the second date about my thoughts on the book. I hadn’t read it yet as I’d been busy. There was not date #3.
    Its still on my shelf unread – I’m wondering if there is some significance in life here that I need to heed?

    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
