I’m still pretty satisfied with most of my answers for the 2.0 version I did last year, so I will just be filling out the extension. Here we go:
An Underrated Book That Many May Not Know About
The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto. I read this [English translation] back in July, and was completely captivated by it.
A Character Who is Mischievous
Flagg the magician in The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. He’s certainly on the evil side of mischievous, but mischievous nonetheless.
A Book With an Unexpected Twist
The Cold Cold Sea by Linda Huber threw me for quite a loop.
A Book or Character That Left You With Rage
The Wallaces in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor. Technically they are more than one character, but they are more frequently grouped together than identified separately.
A Book That Gave You Temporary or Permanent Fears
Coraline by Neil Gaiman. The Mother in this story still frightens me – and yet Neil Gaiman’s writing has me going back into that world time and time again.
