How Can I Be a Book I’ve Never Read?

Via Catch-22, I mean, Dewey:



You’re Ulysses!
by James Joyce
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. What people do understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

  1. If I change the one answer I was unsure of, which is “Do you like stream of consciousness” from yes to no, I come up as The Mists of Avalon. That feels a bit more like me.

  2. The first time, I was Love in the Time of Cholera — I changed one answer and became One Hundred Years of Solitude. Neither description was me but I have read and loved both books. Can’t read Ulyssess though.

  3. I also came up One Hundred Years of Solitude, which didn’t describe me at all, although I love the book.

    I went back and switched one answer, which had the domino effect on the questions, and I became The Theory of Justice, which I have never read. Which has elements of me in it, but not entirely… hmmm.
