Synonym Books
« on: August 24, 2015, 10:04:10 AM »
Love the two recent xkcd comics on synonym movies - #1563 and #1568. Let's do the same for books!  :P

The second one mentions some books in the title text, answers in the spoiler:

Fun With Chairs
Royal Rumble
Knife Blizzard
Breakfast for Birds
Samba Serpents

Spoiler for Hiden:
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows
A Dance with Dragons

Trainee Murderer
Regal Murderer
Murderer's Expedition

The Witchcraft Boat
The Crazy Boat
The Fortune Boat

Idiot's Task
Yellow Idiot
Idiot's Destiny

Lizard Caretaker
Lizard Refuge
Town of Lizards
Gore of Lizards

Idiot's Murderer
Idiot's Search
Murderer's Destiny

Those should be really easy to guess...  :P

Spoiler for Hiden:
Trainee Murderer = Assassin's Apprentice
Regal Murderer = Royal Assassin
Murderer's Expedition = Assassin's Quest

The Witchcraft Boat = Ship of Magic
The Crazy Boat = The Mad Ship
The Fortune Boat = Ship of Destiny

Idiot's Task = Fool's Errand
Yellow Idiot = Golden Fool
Idiot's Destiny = Fool's Quest

Lizard Caretaker = The Dragon Keeper
Lizard Refuge = Dragon Haven
Town of Lizards = City of Dragons
Gore of Lizards = Blood of Dragons

Idiot's Murderer = Fool's Assassin
Idiot's Search = Fool's Quest
Murderer's Destiny = Assassin's Fate
