So I'm an Orwell book then




You're 1984!

by George Orwell

You have this uncanny feeling that you're always being watched. Thus
life has become a bit of a show as you try to portray yourself as much more reputable
than you actually are. All around you, people seem to accept an unending stream of lies
and propaganda without flinching. Your only hope may be a star-crossed love affair, but
pain seems stonger than love. If you have any older brothers, be very wary of
them.



Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.



Make of that what you will. Hat tip to fellow Flann O'Brien fan Sean Jeating for this quiz.

I hate this quizz! I get either Dune or The Guns of August. I am beginning to think they only have six books.

Hmm that's not so good jmb. Perhaps I came up lucky!

:) Nice to see what literary persons we are.
This, just to tell that I am back. Not that I had been on the route with Siddharta, but spend the weekend gardening due to a defect router. :)

jams o donnell said...

Welcome back Sean. Glad the router's back in action!
