Misleading Plot Blurbs

Before we get into this I just wanted to scribble a quick update: I’m moving to university TODAY!! I have a few posts pre-written so I’ll still be a regular presence, and I hope to continue blogging (although probably a bit less) through-out my studies.

Thank you, that will be all.

I took a really interesting quiz on the Barnes and Noble Book Blog (it’s a really good site, actually – who knew?) where famous books were summarised misleadingly. Anyway, it made me think, and I was inspired to dream up a few of my own:

1. An elderly man kidnaps a small child from her bed.

2. An unpleasant writer follows two teenagers half-way across the globe.

3. Some friends team up to murder a hoarder.

4. A pyromaniac suffering from depression and an excellent hairstyle finds her wings.

5. A deranged and racist gentleman hunts and attempts the murder of a cut of meat.

6. A cat-lover goes on an extended fishing trip.

7. A sweet-toothed atheist starts a scandal.

8. An abused child is pursued by a giant and taken from his family.

9. A fish gets hungry for no apparent reason.

10. Five Englishmen (give or take a Hungarian) hunt down an ambitious immigrant.

I chose books I feel are very well-known, so if you fancy having a guess feel free! Also if you’d like to share any of your own ‘misleading plot blurbs’, I’d love to read them.

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
