Do you like reading? If so, what about to do a little quiz of books?I'll write a paragraph and you try to guess which book or novel is it. Here you are:

"THERE was a scream, and everyone looked at the girl.
It was not she who had screamed but the cutler's wife beside her.But the girl was the cause of the scream.She had sunk to her knees in front of the gallows, with her arms stretched out in front of her, the position adopted to utter a curse.The people shrank from her in fear:everyone knew that the curses of those who had suffered injustice were particularly effective, and they had all suspected that something was not quite right about this hanging. The small boys were terrified.
The girl turned her hypnotic golden eyes on the three strangers, the knight, the monk and the priest;and then she pronounced her curse, calling out the terrible words in ringing tones:"I curse you with sickness and sorrow, with hunger and pain;your house shall be consumed by fire, and your children shall die in the gallows;your enemies shall prosper and you shall grow old in sadness and regret, and die in foulness and agony..."

I think it is very easy, if you already have read this novel.

Anxebla-
I do read a lot, but I don't know that one. As you said, you have either read it or not. Maybe you could give the answer and ask another one?

If I had to guess on that one, I would say something by Nathaniel Hawthorne or Alexander Dumas? But I am sure I have never read that book.

One for you:

"He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad, and that was all his patromony"

Who is the Author, title, and bonus points for the subtitle.

Here's an easy one, I believe: opening line of what novel?

"Who is John Galt?"



Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.
