About This Quiz

Is there anything better than curling up with a good book on a cold winter day? Escape into the pages as you absorb every word the author has so painstakingly thought of?

Can you predict how it will all turn out? Will the hero beat his enemies and get the girl? Or is it all in vain as the forces of evil overcome the good and chaos reigns?

That's what books do, don't they? They help us to let our imagination run wild. They put it right in the same situations with our heroes as we fight off the assassin or lovely kiss the heroine as the sun sets behind a beautiful mountain.

And over the centuries, authors have continued to regale us with tales that sometimes are difficult to read and take in; such is their brutality. We have to be thankful that authors of the caliber of Ernest Hemingway, Herman Melville, J.R.R. Tolkien, and many, many others have honed their craft to entertain us!

And when you get to the end of your favorite book and read that last line, a little bit of disappointment sets in. Did it all have to be over so quickly? But to the task at hand. Could you identify a book from its last line or paragraph?

Let's see if you can get 35 out of 35!
