Now, let’s see if you got it right…
- The Divine Comedy (the letter D, a vine, a comma, another D)
- War and Peace (a rabbit warren, a piece of pie)
- Twilight (both straightforward representations of the word)
- The Canterbury Tales (a drinks can, a tear, someone being buried, several animals’ tails)
- Lord of the Flies (a lord, the light bulb indicated is off, “the” in charades, the flies on a pair of jeans)
- The Da Vinci Code (a dove, an inch, the letter E, the word “code” in Morse code)
- East of Eden (Easter, solicitors charge a fee, wolves live in a den)
These clues might help you guess what the answers are. Problem; they’re not in the correct order!
- One is by John Steinbeck.
- One is by Evelyn Waugh.
- Two were written in the Middle Ages.
- One is about the unravelling of an ancient mystery.
- One is about Hell and purgatory.
- One is infamously long.
- One is very popular with teenagers.
- One is set on a remote island.
This was a picture puzzle I created for a quiz; one that I would have been involved with organising but never took place. The object of the puzzle is to guess the title of book from the pictures shown. Try to string the sounds that the words make together and you’ll have the answer. Tip: pronouns have often been removed.
