Which Novels of 2010 Can Stop a Bullet?

(Video Link)

A book may be able to save your life. Specifically, it may be capable of stopping a bullet. Which novel of 2010 is the most protective? Is it Jonathan Franzen's Freedom? Or Joshua Cohen's Witz? Or will it be something on the high-tech Kindle? The people at Electric Literature decided to find out. Alas, they didn't address a more important question, which I leave to you: which book of 2010 is most deserving of being shot?

a friend of mine went to Edinburgh University, and was a member of the scifi club.

They got Iain M Banks to come and speak with them in a Q & A.

The last question was "What book should be taken out and shot?", without pausing he answered "Dianetcs".

A member of the ROTC or shooting club produced a hand gun and a copy of Dianetics from a hold all, they went outside and he shot the book.

It stopped the bullet point blank.

Banks bought it from them for a tidy sum and apparently still has it on his book shelves at home.
