What book are you?

Have you ever wondered what book you are?  Well over at, , there is a very short quiz you can take to find out.  I took the quiz three times, changing the few answers I felt inclined to and came up with three very different books.  I tend to like the first one, but the other two are a little… dark?  Scary, yes, but pretty interesting too.  Take the quiz and tell me what book you are.

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.

my comment-I like hats, but not straw ones.

You’re The Things They Carried!
by Tim O’Brien
Harsh and bitter, you tell it like it is. This usually comes in short, dramatic spurts of spilling your guts in various ways. You carry a heavy load, and this has weighed you down with all the horrors that humanity has to offer. Having seen and done a great deal that you aren’t proud of, you have no choice but to walk forward, trudging slowly through ongoing mud. In the next life, you will come back as a water buffalo.

my comment- Maybe it is my bitterness that’s weighing me down around the middle.  Maybe if I listen to the birds sing and to the children play I can lose 10 pounds.

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.

my comment-I’m pretty set in my values although I like to know what other people’s values are so we can coexist.  And I don’t think they mean ferries.  Who doesn’t believe in boats?

  1. I’m a Hobbit.

    You’re The Hobbit!
    by J.R.R. Tolkien
    All you wanted was a nice cup of tea when some haggard crazy old man came into your life and told you it was time to do something with yourself. Now you’re all conflicted about whether to stick with your stay-at-home lifestyle or follow this crazy person into the wild. While you’re very short and a little furry, you seem to be surrounded by an even greater quantity of short folks lately. Try not to lose your ring, but keep its value in perspective!

  2. Hmm, short and furry? I don’t think so. You do love your cup of tea though!

  3. Ok, mine is ‘You’re Confessions by St Augustine. Interesting. I will have to think about it.

  4. I’m Siddhartha by Herman Hesse. I think they got the individualist right but not the lonely part. Oh well. It was fun.

  5. You’re Les Miserables!
    by Victor Hugo
    One of the best known people in your community, you have become something of a phenomenon. People have sung about you, danced in your honor, created all manner of art in your name. And yet your story is one of failure and despair, with a few brief exceptions. A hopeless romantic, you’ll never stop hoping that more good will come from your failings than is ever possible. Beware detectives and prison guards bearing vendettas.

    That was fun! Thanks for the link. (I definitely agree with the “hoping that more good will come from your failings…” part!)

  6. jb- I’ve never thought of you as someone needing to confess. Now I’m wondering…

    Bermudaonion- Siddhartha is what I got the third time I took it. I don’t know if you took it more than once, but the questions are completely different once you make one differenct choice. I’m glad to know someone followed the same path I did 🙂

    Elena- You sound like the person to know! Wow. I’ve never met a phenomenon before. Glad you had fun.

  7. Odd… I’m Anne of Green Gables. I guess I never pictured myself as a farm girl… or any kind of girl.

  8. Don, Anne of Green Gables, huh? Well, that gives me a visual picture that is probably not so accurate. Of course, I’m no Huckleberry Finn so I guess we’re even.
