Trivial Sunday- Sequel? I had no idea.

The first book was wildly popular, the 2nd not so much. Can you name the unpopular sequels to the these popular titles?

Feel free to do all 10 at home, but only answer 1 in the answers below. That way 9 others will have a chance to play along. Try to answer the question you feel would be the most difficult.

1. Farley Mowat- Lost in the Barrens (aka Two Against the North-- see last week's quiz)

2. Island of the Blue Dolphins- Scott O'Dell

3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- Roald Dahl

4. The Colony of Unrequited Dreams- Wayne Johnston

5. Forrest Gump- Winston Groom

6. Holes- Louis Sachar

7. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs- Judi Barrett

8. Trainspotting- Irving Welsh

9. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings- Maya Angelou

10. Catch 22- Joseph Heller

(Like reading obscure sequels? Why not write a review for my equally obscure blog, the not-so cleverly named "The Obscure Challenge." Also, feel free to add another lesser known sequel below!)

Well I know the answer to one of them. Not the most difficult at all. The sequel to #2 is Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.

3 for 3! And none of which I've personally read.

i did read Zia, but can't recall much about it other than it wasn't as good as the first.

#8 sequel is Porno (I believe)...haven't read either one, though Trainspotting has been on my bookshelf for about six years now.

10 is Closing Time. Quite an awful book, hard to believe the same person wrote Catch-22.

I really liked Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. Not as good as the first, but still very, very good.

The sequel to 'The Colony of Unrequited Dreams' is called 'The Custodian of Paradise' and was written almost ten years later.
