You’re Cat’s Cradle!
by Kurt Vonnegut
You believe quite firmly that free will deserted you long ago and far
away. As a result, it’s hard to take responsibility for anything. Even though you show
great potential as a leader of a small 3rd world country, the choices are all made ahead
of time. You’re rather fond of games involving string. Your fear of nuclear weaponry is
trumped only by your fear of ice.

So says the Bookquiz, which I found via BookLust. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but does anyone have any Ice 9 I could borrow?

I’m Nabokov’s Pale Fire:
“You’re really into poetry and the interpretation thereof. Along the road of life, you have had several identity crises which make it very unclear who you are, let alone how to interpret…

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.
See the cat? See the cradle?
According to the quiz, I’m “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!” How topical!
And k.’s was the final book in the ‘One City, One Book’ thing that the library was running. So you’re both topical!
Perhaps with some Ice 9 we can overthrow spring and restore winter!
Now you’re thinking!
I am so one-dimensional. I was _The Handmaid’s Tale_.
Oh, that I were a feminist dystopian novel! I got stuck with _The Sound and the Fury_. The description just makes ya want to run out and jump off a cliff:
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.
Hey, Scott, ice is dangerous – you’re wise to fear it (says the ice skater, ha)! Did you know it’s harder than concrete?
I was Anne of Green Gables – 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.
Actually, I really hate it when people spell my name with an ‘s’ instead of a ‘ce.’ Damn Janis Joplin and her hippie ways.
