This is Freaky!!!

You're Cry, the Beloved Country!

by Alan Paton

Life is exceedingly difficult right now, especially when you put more
miles between yourself and your hometown. But with all sorts of personal and profound
convictions, you are able to keep a level head and still try to help folks, no matter
how much they harm you. You walk through a land of natural beauty and daily horror. In
the end, far too much is a matter of black and white.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Does this sound like me?

What book are you?

Is sounds so much like you that if I didn't know better, I would think you had written the synopsis! Freaky indeed!

Could you elaborate on your response about mine? I thot it was a lot like me.

You're To Kill a Mockingbird!

by Harper Lee

Perceived as a revolutionary and groundbreaking person, you have
changed the minds of many people. While questioning the authority around you, you've
also taken a significant amount of flack. But you've had the admirable guts to
persevere. There's a weird guy in the neighborhood using dubious means to protect you,
but you're pretty sure it's worth it in the end. In the end, it remains unclear to you
whether finches and mockingbirds get along in real life.

Thank you for this.

Freaky indeed... look mine:
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

I really would like to signify 'some' thou :D
But in this crossroads in life, this is so true!

Happy travels Rita, be safe and come back with good stories.

This is me:
You're Anne of Green Gables!
by L.M. Montgomery
Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash, honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters. You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.

That was short, and it is surprisingly accurate. I'm the same as Serendip: To Kill a Mockingbird. It's right on!

I must be a comic book Rita..haha

Harry said...

Freaky is right

You're Mother Night by Kurt VonnegutNobody knows what to believe about you, and you know least of all. You
spent most of your time convinced that the ends justify the means, but your means were,
well, downright mean! And the end is nigh. Meanwhile all you want is to travel back in
time, if not to change, then to just delight in the way it used to be. You are who you
pretend to be. Oh yes, you're the great pretender.

From what I know of JM, I'd say this is scary accurate!

This was scary accurate for me too, so think I'll post at my place about it.

Want to venture a guess as to which book I am?
Hint: I'm the same as one of the commenters

Jungle Mom said...

Yes, it sounds exactly what I know of you. Stange isn't it. I am BarBar the King. Funny, I wonder how they do that. connie from texas

You're The Giver!
by Lois Lowry
While you grew up with a sheltered childhood, you're pretty sure everyone around you is even more sheltered. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, you were tapped on the shoulder and transported to the real world. This made you horrified by your prior upbringing and now you're tormented by how to reconcile these two lives. Ultimately, the struggle comes down to that old free will issue. Choose wisely.

Hmmmmm, and the reality was intensely personal, an alcoholic adoptive mother(she got saved before she died)who nearly destroyed me. I came out stronger and learned about forgiveness in the process.
And I decided to choose G*D's Way.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!


Jungle Mom said...

I am finding out so much about all of you! HEE HEE!

Caraqueña said...

Yikes, JM, I did this and I COULDN'T publish it! It was some book about tearing down imperialism, etc. It was so not me! Yours and Jackie's are very accurate though! Haven't seen Pam's yet...
