    Default Describe a book's plot in only 10 words...

    Hi everyone,

    Spotted this idea on another forum, and thought it might be fun for us to give it a try. Rules are simple - pick a book, and describe it's plot in only 10 words or fewer.

    To kick things of, I'm going to try Terry Pratchett's Mort:

    Death gets apprentice. Apprentice breaks causality - can they save everything?
    We ride tornadoes. We eat tomatoes.

    Nazi's Allies Won. Japanese power struggles. Reclusive Author Tells Truth.

    The Man In The High Castle- Philip K. Dick.

    Have I got this right?
