The Surrealist Compliment Generator - does exactly as it says on the tin. Link harvested from Tam. You could write write a novel off the back of this thing!

More lexiconological treats over on this Summarise a Novel in 25 words thread at the boards (link sighted under my bed within last Thursday's Guardian).


Watership Down (Richard Adams) - "Funny-named bunnies leave home based on psychic premonition, join cult, leave, find new home, notice no lady bunnies around, steal lady bunnies from farm."

The Bible - "Good opening chapter. Main character arrives halfway through, but gets killed off early. Some decent (if dated) commandments. Cracking ending. Slighty too open to interpretation."

Requiem for a Dream (Hubert Selby Jr.) - "Heroin and diet pills are all fun and games until someone loses an arm."

The Lord of the Rings (JRR Tolkien) - "Little guys go to a lot of trouble to get rid of stolen jewelry."

Fight Club (Chuck Palahniuk) - "I hate my life. Almost as much as Marla. Anarchy is liberating. No, anarchy is bad. Wait, anarchy is, I don't know. Ask me. The other me." or "I read this book. Because Tyler read this book." or "The first rule of Fight Club is you don't summarise Fight Club."

Naked Lunch (William Burroughs) - "Heroin eyeball. Razor. Control fuck. Is."

1984 (George Orwell) - "2004."
