PostSubject: Guess the Plot of a Book You've Never Read   Mon Jan 24, 2011 11:39 am

Inspired by Jim Halpert's first(and likely, only) meeting with the Finer Things Club, I thought it would be fun to select a well known book that you've never read and, based on the title and/or artwork, theorize the content.

I'll start.


Angela's Ashes
During the many clashes of the IRA and the English, a young boy's mother is blown to bits. What follows is his quest to give her a proper burial in the Catholic way. He has to journey across the wartorn country to bury her at her family plot.

I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell
A fratboy inherits the throne of Hell. Hilarity ensues.


Alright, so there are my rather weak examples. Show me up!

Angela's Ashes:

Sounds like a sad story. The setting maybe takes place in during war time or the after effects of war. I think Angela is a sister or a mother that died with a terminal illness or killed in the war. Or Angela might of not died. Maybe ashes could be a representation of a deeper meaning or a common universal theme, like a motif or something. I wouldn't think that the story would be told in the view point of Angela. Most likely her child, father, husband, or sister.

I Hope they Serve Beer in Hell:

The title doesn't sound like a novel at all to me. I doubt there is a plot. Sounds like a title of a book with a collection of short stories on it, maybe poems. Or maybe it's one of those political books. Doesn't sound like something I would read.

The Handmaiden's Tale (Margaret Atwood)

There is a handmaiden. She likes to tell stories. She tells you one.

Suttree (Cormac McCarthy)

There's a place called Suttree. It's full of fucked up people who, most likely, rape and eat each other. Possibly not in that order.

Gone with the Wind (Margaret Mitchell)

An extreme amount of flatulence.
