10 More Classic Books As Stereotypes of Their Readers

What does your favorite book say about you? (Part 2)


A couple months ago, I did a post describing 10 classic books using stereotypes about their readers. And now, I’m doing a part 2!

Read Part 1 here!

(Obligatory disclaimer for the Internet: this is not a serious post)

Without further ado: here are 10 more classic novels, described in stereotypes of their readers.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Feminists who unironically say “herstory” and think it’s sexist for a man to hold open the door for you

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley-

Moral-panic conservatives who will talk your ear off about how Western civilization is going to decline into degeneracy

The Stranger by Albert Camus-

College students who read Nietzsche in public places and would smoke a fake cigarette for the aesthetic

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

14-year-old Redditors who think everything’s CIA propaganda and simp for Stalin but don’t realize that they literally are part of the bourgeoisie

The Alchemist by Paul Coelho-

People who have a Live Laugh Love sign in their house

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde-

People who would write a painfully dramatic entry in their diary at the slightest inconvenience, then forget about it the next day.

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath-

Girls who listen to Mitski and write novels

The Odyssey by Homer-

People who definitely had a Rick Riordan phase when they were 9

All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque-

The subset of history buffs who are also pacifists

The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

People who would, too, write a self-insert fanfic about everyone they don’t like burning in hell

  1. 🤣🤣🤣 These might be even more hilarious than the first batch! I snorted at The Alchemist one, because even though I haven’t read it yet myself, many people I know who love it do have Live Laugh Love signs in their house! 🤔😂

  2. I subscribed to your blog after reading this post and the previous one on the same topic. The post was fun to read and the stereotypes are accurate =)

    The Divine Comedy – or rather the Inferno- is one of my favourite books but I wouldn’t write that kind of self insert fanfiction, alas. I think my favourite classical novels are Crime and Punishment, Brothers Karamazov and the Plague by Albert Camus. I don’t know whether there might be stereotypes associated with them.
