book/novel quiz
« on: October 18, 2007, 06:50:33 pm »
Hey girls and guys, I'd like to start a new game, and I'd be very glad if many of you participated!

I'd love to start a

book/novel quiz.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all well read, but I love reading, so....the game is as follows:

I ask a question, and in case you know the answer you quote the question and post the answer. And In case you know a good question, don't hesitate to post it, no matter whether you knew the answer!

So, let's start with an easy one:


What is M. Tolliver's nickname?

Can I answer this even though I haven't read the books? I Googled it, and Michael Tolliver's nickname from the "Tales of the City" books about San Francisco by Armistead Maupin, is "Mouse." So cute!!

I loved that Mouse said, "I would love the people who loved me back, and loved me unconditionally."

One time I began reading one of these books that was printed in the San Francisco paper, but only a few parts here and there. I want to read one of the books all the way thru, now!!

More questions, please!

When you see the smiley face in the sky, the pandemic will be over!

I highly reccomend the last one, Michael Tolliver Lives! And your answer was right of course!


Okay then, next question:

 In which novel does someone called Cloud get to eat grass quite often?

Well, I'm totally flummoxed.  Rarely do I read a novel in which a main character eats grass, much less ones named Cloud.   :P  I'm wondering if Cloud is a horse. 

Cloud is an animal, yes, one that looks a little like a cloud.  :)

Was Mary's little lamb named Cloud?  Oh wait, that was a nursery rhyme and not a novel.   :P

Cloud is a sheep, yes, and the book itīs in changed my view of sheep drastically . Every time I went by them I expected them to behave like in one of Gay Larsonīs comics the moment I turned my back.

Hey, Gary, hereīs a place to brag a little....maybe you want to post a question and let us guess?

Thanks for posting a question, Shasta, but I have not the slightest idea...

Thank you, Dagi! Was this a good book? Three Bags Full ?

I'll repeat this one and see if anyone remembers it:

Three Bags Full was fun to read, but it's certainly not a must, and it's certainly overrated. But if you want to read light stuff and have fun, it's okay.

My new question is a quote:

"Love was an emotion through which you occasionally enjoyed yourself. It can not do things."

( A statement that in the end turned out to not be the truth.  :))

From which novel is that quote?

According to Google  ;D, it's from 'Maurice' by E.M. Forster.
'We're supposed to guard the sheep, not eat 'em'

Hey!  ;D  I've read 'Maurice', only, it was about twenty years ago. I couldn't remember that quote.   ;)

That is from A prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving.

Seems to be a great book!  ;) I think I put it on my list...

If you love it, I should definitely read it. So far Iīve loved the books you said you loved...

Okay, now I have a question about the book that has been lying on my desk for some time now and is still waiting to be finished, although it is really brilliant and pure joy to read...(but sometimes one is just not in the mood to read, or one has found something even better to read... ;D).

And no, Gary, you are not allowed to guess this time, that would be too easy!  ;)

In which novel does a man called Uncle Pete give advice as to the exact time when a man and a woman should have sexual intercourse in order to get a girl?

This line was carved into my soul, although I knew how the story would end...but I so felt with Maurice at this point. It is still hard to bear to watch Alec leave the hotel room, although I've watched the movie about a million times.

I knew that one!  :)  "The smallest person I ever knew" tipped me off.

Here's one - probably too easy:

"Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents"
