The goal is to guess the book by the quote from it.
There are some rules about quotes:
- don't give the quote that is generally known, e.g. "To be or not to be, that is the question".
- if the book is very popular, don't give names of main characters (Romeo, Hermione, Legolas... )
- naturally, if we are to guess it, there should be English translation (at least 3 years old)
- the quote should be somehow characteristic of the book. That means, don't write a description of some house in one of Austen's novels, for example. While some people might be able to guess it's Austen, there will be few (if any) able to say the name of the book
- you may give one hint
The one who guess the name of the book, will post another quote. I'll begin:
He had not a minute more to lose. He pulled the axe quite out, swung it with both arms, scarcely conscious of himself, and almost without effort, almost mechanically, brought the blunt side down on her head. He seemed not to use his own strength in this. But as soon as he had once brought the axe down, his strength returned to him.
