The Great Book Cover Quiz! – The Answers


Last week I laid down the challenge of correctly identifying 12 well known novels from their covers which had had both their title and author removed.

Today I present the answers along with the original, unaltered covers.

For each cover, award yourself one point if the got the author right and another point if you got the title. And if you got the bonus cover then that’s one extra point for BOTH the author and the title.

(01)
Lord of the Flies – William Golding

(02)
The Crow Road – Iain Banks

(03)
I Am Legend – Richard Matheson

(04)
The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

(05)
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Roald Dahl

(06)
The Colour of Magic – Terry Pratchett

(07)
The Great Gatsby – F Scott Fitzgerald

(08)
The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown

(09)
Life of Pi – Yann Martel

One Day – David Nicholls

  1. Hmm. Let’s see. I got six of the covers in the first round right – but one I cheated to figure out the title… so that’s 2*6-1 for 11 points. Plus I got the bonus cover, so that’s a total of 12 points. 🙂

    • Yep I’d say that’s bang on – I agree with your scoring for The Colour of Magic, you had the author but not the title and the bonus round was of course The Hobbit. 12 points!
