The Commentator who claims that the Answer to Question 5, is wrong is incorrect. The correct answer is: Anna Karenia by Leo Tolstoy.

12/12 Literature was one of my favorite subjects. I've read all of these books except...Catcher In The Rye, Catch 22 & Slaughter House Five. Those I got correct by process of elimination. Great quiz with correct answers. Thank you!

Nancy Chisholm, 5 is correct, it is Anna Karenina. The first line of War And Peace is "Well, Prince, so Genoa and Lucca are now just family estates of the Buonapartes."

10/12. Good quiz with answers. Good mix. Some easy and obvious. Some obscure and difficult.
