Answer just 6 questions and match your character to a book here.

Remarkably prescient given my favourite novel of all time is Tolstoy's War and Peace.

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.”


So, what book are you?

I'm David Copperfield, apparently. The assertion that I've spent a lot of time in factories is incorrect, but I'm sure there are worse people to be.

Really annoying questions - the kind where I want to answer 'neither' the the options they give!  So all a bit arbitrary, since I could easily have answered differently, and may well go back and do just that.

My book is Watership Down - bloody typical - I get to be a book about talking animals!!!!!!  I don't like animals.

It did say I might be one of the greatest people of all time, though.

OK - I give up - I did the quiz again, got different questions (easier to answer, at least), and ended up with The Two Towers...

Talking animals or fantasy, take your pick... Shocked

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'm sure they mean fairies, although.....

I feel quite lucky compared to some others - I did the test differently, taking a slightly different tack, and came out as To Kill a Mockingbird. My commiserations to you, E/V...

I've just reread The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock - what an astonishing poem. I wish I understood it. The kind of thing one could usefully spend quite a while memorising.
