Like this book quiz.


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.

Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

“…you believe in ferries.”? Is there some other meaning to the word that I don’t know about? I’m picturing a boat here. ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s what i got,
You’re The Sound and the Fury!
by William Faulkner
Strong-willed but deeply confused, you are trying to come to grips with a major crisis in your life. You can see many different perspectives on the issue, but you’re mostly overwhelmed with despair at what you’ve lost. People often have a hard time understanding you, but they have some vague sense that you must be brilliant anyway. Ultimately, you signify nothing.

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.

I got Joseph Heller’s Catch-22.
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.

very random, no?

Strong-willed (hell, yeah!) but deeply confused (not deeply, at any rate), you are trying to come to grips with a major crisis in your life (yes, how to get my grandfather to lose interest in the ‘man-hunt’). You can see many different perspectives on the issue (yup), but youโ€™re mostly overwhelmed with despair at what youโ€™ve lost (not yet, but i guess i will be when i lose my ‘single’ status). People often have a hard time understanding you (you should ask ‘people’ about that), but they have some vague sense that you must be brilliant anyway (people do seem to have a good opinion about me even if I never talk to them – maybe BCOZ i don’t talk to them – so I guess that’s true). Ultimately, you signify nothing.(dunno what to make of this) ๐Ÿ˜€

yhac, I think so too..

To me its increasingly becoming an exercise in knowing more about books I have never read, rather than the people the books are associated with. ๐Ÿ˜‰ . There are basically 6 or questions and by trying all possible 64 options, thats a lot of books to know about ๐Ÿ˜€

@natasha : Dying to know more about your talking rabbits and to see where you build your house :p

@joy : LOL at “You could coin a phrase that replaces the word โ€œparadoxโ€ for millions of people.”

@achala : some commentary there.

This is what I got. Didnt make much sense ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

You’re Confessions!
by St. Augustine
You’re a sinner, you’re a saint, you do not feel ashamed. Well, you might feel a little ashamed of your past, but it did such a good job of teaching you what not to do. Now you’ve become a devout Christian and have spent more time ruminating on the world to come rather than worldly pleasures. Your realizations and ability to change will bring reverence upon you despite your hedonistic transgressions. Florida will honor you most in the end.

rajaram : as i said – “To me its increasingly becoming an exercise in knowing more about books I have never read, rather than the people the books are associated with” ….

“Youโ€™re a sinner, youโ€™re a saint, you do not feel ashamed. ” …hmm ๐Ÿ˜€

“Well, you might feel a little ashamed of your past, but it did such a good job of teaching you what not to do. ” ..ooh and did it ? ๐Ÿ˜‰
