The Alchemist is a fantastic read - in fact everything I've read by Paulo Coelho reveals a guy with one amazing mind.

Would love to have more time. I need to read them aloud several times to get any idea of what they might sound like, pretty sure I could've gotten a couple more if time.

Interesting that this quiz has a rating of only 2 stars. Personally, I think it's a great quiz! But I've noticed that ratings tend to correlate inversely with difficulty. Which is why we are making an effort to have more short, easy quizzes on the site.

Yeah, I've suspected for a while that if people find a quiz difficult or don't do well on it, they 'take revenge' by giving it a low rating. And of course everyone enjoys different kinds of quizzes. But I hope the element of fun in these fractured quizzes comes across. I think when you wrote the comment, the rating was 2.08; it's now 2.57, so it's improving - go, little quiz, go!

Personally, I got 100% on the first try and gave it 3/5 because I thought some of the "accents" strained credulity. I've given 5/5 to quizzes I've done very poorly on; my philosophy is "it's not a bad quiz just because I'M bad AT it".

thoroughly enjoyed this. pretty much every quiz, you know the answer, or you dont. with this you should be able to get 100% with enough slurred rambling and lost ego. one of my favourites

On a more serious note, I think the lower rating is likely due to the lack of adequate time to get a good score. It IS fun to work through the more challenging quizzes, but frustrating to only get to a comparatively low portion of a quiz when time runs out.

i usually forget to rate the quiz. My bad! I do consciously not rate quizzes with bad spelling or answers or that only the quiz-creator knows what they were thinking as they are very frustrating.

When saying "Up reef fist tree oft I'm" aloud, I think I sounded much like the book's author.
