Can You Guess These Classic Books From Their Phantom Covers (Round 4)?

Gabe Habash -- January 10th, 2013

If you missed PWxyz’s “trademark” quiz game, Phantom Book Covers (rounds one, two, and three), here’s how it works: we make the words from a book cover vanish, and you guess what that word-free cover is. It’s simple. If you can get all 10 books below, you win an oversized stuffed animal, just like at the carnival. We have panda, kangaroo, and lizard.

    3 out of 10 for me. Don Quixote; The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Here are some of my missed guesses–make of them what you will:
    I thought Interview With the Vampire was The Portrait of Dorian Gray. (Dapper accessories, genteel setting, memento mori.)
    Thought Christine would be something by Kurt Vonnegut. (Hey, it looked morbid.)
    Mistook Wide Sargasso Sea for something by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
    Not even remotely familiar with the other 4 covers.

    Only got don Quixote.thought the table with flowers was Phantom of opera and the orange cover was catcher in the rye.Christine really surprised me.

    3 out of 10: Don Quixote, Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Wide Sargasso Sea. Thought Interview With A Vampire might be Jane Eyre, but don’t think Bronte would mind the mistake. She’d probably read Interview and wish she’d written in herself. :-)

    Four out of ten: Don Quixote; The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; White Teeth; and Wide Sargasso Sea. (I saw the cover for White Noise and thought “Something like that would be interesting for Don Delillo’s White Noise,” but it never occurred to me that it might already be the cover.)

      You did better than me. I only got Don Quixote. I thought the cover for “Lion, Witch, Wardrobe” might have been for “The chronicles or Narnia” so I was in the ballpark.
