Better Book Titles

Have you ever read a book and been disappointed to find it’s not at all how you imagined? Wouldn’t it be great if the book title gave an accurate reflection of what goes on in the story? Take a look at Dan Wilbur’s Better Book Titles where Ian McEwan’s Atonement becomes Kids Say The Darndest Things and Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach is retitled It’s OK if giant fruit kills your aunts so long as they were bitches.

Which books do you think should be renamed?

  1. Not a book but a play that could do with a new title:

    Women Should Give Up Their Dreams to Accommodate Their Husbands’ Ludicrous Obsession with a Dog

    (Sylvia, by A R Gurney)
