You may have worked out at some point that I like birds. Sometimes I try to take photos of them but I use my phone so the photos are, invariably, quite shit. This week, I would like you to identify the (common) birds that are in the five best bird photos that I took this year.
As usual, putting the answers in the comments section might bring you some small semblance of joy.
Last week’s answers…
Last week I gave you five 1 Star Amazon reviews of Booker Prize winning novels. They were…
- A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James (This one was quite easy. The clue being “a jamaican accent drove me insane. lol” Do you know what drives me insane, pal? Casual racism in book reviews.)
- Life of Pi by Yann Martel (There were a few clues in this review.)
- The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro (The review was a bit harsh on poor old Stevens imho, but with enough detail for us to work out which book the reviewer means.)
- Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (With the key word in the review being ‘history’, of course. Far more historical novels win the prize than people seem to think, but this is definitely the most famous of them.)
- The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga (What to say about this review? As little as possible, I think. In among the madness though, are the clues to help you get to Adiga.)
- Milkman by Anna Burns (I did say that I suspected one of the reviewers hadn’t read the book. I’m not sure anybody truly believes that Milkman is ‘chick lit nonsense’ but who am I to question the man (and you know it was a man) who labelled it so in his dumb three word review, eh? Honestly, you probably needed to guess this one to get all six questions correct, but I thought the review was funny so I used it. Sorry.)
