Quiz: Round Two


Though I'm writing all these posts on Tuesday afternoon, I'm going to assume that you all did really well on the picture round yesterday - so give yourselves a hearty pat on the back.

Tonight is a round which is harder to describe, but much easier for me to copy and paste into blogger. These are all characters who are better known by the titles of the books in which they appear. I think I'd better give an example - if the character were 'Mary Boleyn' then the answer would be 'The Other Boleyn Girl'. Here goes... (same idea as yesterday - have a go in the comments, but make sure you don't read the comments first if you want to have a go!) (Oh, and Thomas family - don't cheat!)

1.) Oliver Mellors
2.) Quasimodo
3.) Bilbo Baggins
4.) Clare Abshire
5.) Rachel Ashley
6.) Sir Robert Chiltern
7.) Michael Henchard
8.) Anne Catherick
9.) Liesel Meminger
10.) Cedric Errol

  1. Oh dear I'm not very good with names, so can only get two:

    2.) Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    3) Bilbo Baggins - I guess The Hobbit, although I think he is also in The Fellowship of the Ring anf Return of the King

  2. 1. Lady Chatterley's Lover
    2. The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    3. The Hobbit
    4. The Time Traveler's Wife
    5. My Cousin Rachel
    8. The Woman in White

    The others I only know after googling so that would be cheating!

  7. Wow, I feel ridiculously proud of myself. BEHOLD:

    1. Lady Chatterley's Lover
    2. The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    3. The Hobbit
    4. The Time Traveler's Wife
    5. My Cousin Rachel
    6. An Ideal Husband
    7. The Mayor of Casterbridge
    8. The Woman in White
    9. The Book Thief
    10. Little Lord Fauntleroy

    Little Lord Fauntleroy is easily the book among these books that I read earliest in my life and most often since then, but it took me the longest to get. I kept thinking of Harry Potter - you know, Cedric Diggory and Errol the owl - and it threw me off!

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
