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.

Lord of the Flies – William Golding

The Crow Road – Iain Banks

I Am Legend – Richard Matheson

The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Roald Dahl

The Colour of Magic – Terry Pratchett

The Great Gatsby – F Scott Fitzgerald

The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown

Life of Pi – Yann Martel

One Day – David Nicholls

Animal Farm – George Orwell

The Beach – Alex Garland

The Hobbit – J R R Tolkein

  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!
