Because, like Jay Z, I have 99 problems. One of those is seeing the fun things that other bloggers do and deciding to do the same even though;
a) no one has asked me to
have 99 red balloons 99 other things I should be doing
But I have never been able to help myself so why stop a habit of a lifetime?
Over at The Awkward Book Blogger I saw this Four Word Summary Challenge and thought, ‘yeah I’ll do that’ which probably leaves the people who have actually tagged me in stuff ready to tear their hair out. Maybe.
The game is that you take a book and try and summarise it in four words. Character names shouldn’t be used and neither should any words present in the title.
I haven’t gone for 15 (because I am lazy) and the answers are at the bottom of the page.
If you get all of them right then the prize is…
Um. A cute picture of my cat?
Boy wizard gets hormonal
Large cat is god
Scientist does bad thing
Archer survives horrible event
Young boys turn savage
Sad man throws parties
Couple ruins neighbours lives
Boy wizard (Harry Potter) gets hormonal (he’s so angry in this one)!
Large cat (Aslan, he’s a cat dammit) is god (creates and destroys Narnia and the series is known for being a Christian allegory)
Scientist (Frankenstein) does bad thing (creates a man and then abandon’s his creation. It doesn’t go well for people)
Archer (Katniss Everdeen) survives horrible event (the titular hunger games)
Young boys (a whole group of them marooned on an island) turn savage (and boy do they…)
Sad man (Gatsby who yearns for Daisy) throws parties (that’s why he’s so great)
Couple (Healthcliff and Catherine) ruin (by marrying them) neighbours (the Lintons’) lives
How many did you get right?
Do you want a cute picture of my cat anyway?
I’m not tagging anyone in this as it was a shameless steal on my part but if anyone wants to do it please go for it and tag me in so I can have a go!
