Saturday Word Play- Before and After Canadian Edition


A while ago I featured a Before and After game on Saturday Word Play, but since the CRTC has been on my back to make my blog more Canadian, I've revamped it so that each clue contains at least one Canadian book. Can you fill in the blanks to complete the two titles? Bonus points for naming the two authors. (Points can be redeemed at Snow Covered Hills for a free grammar lesson.)

As always, feel free to do all ten at home, but only answer one in the comment section below-- that way, at least nine others can play along.

1. Sea of ---------house five
2. Mercy Among --- -------- of Men
3. Green Grass, Running ----- for Elephants
4. Rebel ------ & Demons
5. Republic of ---- in the Time of Cholera
6. Running in the ------ Matters
7. The Watch That Ends --- ----- Before Christmas
8. Anne of --- ------ Walkers
9. Bottle Rocket ------ in Atlantis
10. Sleeping Dragons All ------ the World in 80 Days

#4 Rebel Angels / Angels & Demons

And for my bonus point: Roberson Davies (one of my favourites) / Dan Brown (shudder)

#3 is Green Grass, Running Water by Thomas King and Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.

Both great books in my opinion.

1. Sea of Slaughter - Farley Mowat / Slaughterhouse Five - Kurt Vonnegut

Thank you for leaving an easy one for me! :-)

Kate: That's it. I've only read one Davies book (Fifth Business) and two by Brown (cause apparently you can be hit by turd lightning twice).

Gyspysmom: Haven't read Gruen's yet, but I've heard good things.

Raidergirl: I met her about 10 years ago and she was very sweet in person.

Pooker: That's it.

Dale: Ahh Vonnegut. He puts the "laughter" in "slaughter". I don't really know what I mean by that, but I'm ran out of wit about 2 years ago. I don't really know what I mean by that either, but I'm scraping here.

Not exactly Saturday but #2 is Mercy Among The Children by David Adams Richards / The Children of Men by P.D. James

#9 is Bottle Rocket HEARTS! Amazing book!

John Mutford said...

Wanda: That'd be it!

B.Kienapple: Yes, and of course the other title is HEARTS in Atlantis. Care to tell us the 2 authors?
