What Book I'm Not

...but a friend got this result and I think it is very funny.

What? It's a holiday weekend!

You're A Theory of Justice!

by John Rawls

In the beginning, you lived in a town. The town had many problems! Rather than moving, you decided to come up with the idea for the best town ever. Going all the way back to the original position, you created the idea for the best town ever! Lo and behold, the best town ever looked almost identical to the town you lived in. You decided to stay in the town. Now you resent people mistaking your refined thought experiments for "the wall of stupidity" in high school debate

Oh dear, I'm Watership Down:

"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'm actually James Joyce's Ulysses:

Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but compared to what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense.

Oddly apt.

(Thanks for the visit--I enjoy your blog, profacero!)

"I'm - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! by Douglas Adams"

Actually not surprised. And, pleased that at least I'm a book that I've read and love. Not "Fahrenheit 451" but it'll do.


"Considered by many to be one of the funniest people around, you are quite an entertainer. You've also traveled to the far reaches of what you deem possible, often confused and unsure of yourself. Life continues to jostle you around like a marble, but it's shown you so much of the world that you don't care. Wacky adventures continue to lie ahead. Your favorite number is 42."
