That's when inspiration struck and I though of a great new time waster. I started putting the titles of various books into Yahoo Answers, trying to pick ones that would be on summer reading lists. I found the sort of question you might expect, such as "What is the theme of this book?" But I also found an amazing variety of questions that went far beyond this. The results are either amusing or alarming. I haven't quite decided.
Here are just three, presented without comment. I could do a bunch, but it's a lot more fun to discover them on your own. If you find a gem, please share it.
How is the novel Speak (Laurie Halse Anderson) an example of the "paradise lost" archetype?
What does the snow in the snowball fight in chapter five of the Catcher in the Rye symbolize?
How do I answer these Breathing Underwater questions in third person ?
