Story Synopsis Quiz

19 comments:

  1. Mike, you need to change the verbiage in this quiz for question 6.

    Michael Corleone is the YOUNGEST SON and not the eldest. "Sonny" was the eldest son of Don Corleone.

    Great quiz. Enjoying your site.

  2. Fun. What's scary is the fact that I know about so many movies, like The Firm, that I've never actually seen.

  3. I got 8 out of 10. Not bad, or maybe not "good."

  9. Interesting quiz and test of synopsis. It led to several answers even though I had not read them.

  11. FYI, I can’t see the questions on this page. looks like the text is the same color as the background, maybe? Doesn’t seem to bother others though, so I guess it’s just me.

    I did take the quiz by following the link to the original site. Shockingly, I went 10 for 10.

  14. My first visit to your site Mike. Love it, and this quiz. You really know how to engage a writer as well as a reader. I won 10 for 10, but I'm a movie fan (I hope to adapt my novel to a screenplay). Signed up on your email list. Looking forward to everything you can teach me.

  16. You're welcome, Denise, glad the post was helpful and good luck with your synopsis!

  17. 10/10. Annie Hall was a close-run thing.

    Mike, you should run another quiz of misleading synopses--like where you describe Alice in Wonderland as a girl "who kills the first person she finds." That'd be fun!
