Book Title Game (inspired by Cabin Pressure)

Yesterday I posted this and Davina thought we could give it a go and create some titles of our own. The rules are simply - find a new title for an existing book by using words of one syllable only. (This is a nod to the game played in the "Wokingham" episode of Cabin Pressure radio series). A little guesswork included. Here are some examples:

My contribution:

Girl who cheats on guy, feels bad, and jumps in front of train

Re: Book Title Game (inspired by Cabin Pressure)

A Wild Beast in the Sea or: The Fish that is not a Fish

(oh, just realised that the original second title consists of one-syllable-words anyway  )

Re: Book Title Game (inspired by Cabin Pressure)

Of course we could name the title but guessing's more fun.
Is this the answer for mine? Then it's wrong. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
