The subtitle of the quiz says "Could be..." That doesn't mean it is. It could be something else, too, like a memoir.

Heart of Darkness is a short story, not a book, so that should be added to the subheading

There's simply no requirement for a story to be over 100 pages to be considered a book. Many classic books are less than 100 pages.

Punctuation is never required for answers on JetPunk. It shows up as the final, technically-correct answer, but putting in "Moby Dick" would have worked. Heck, I don't even bother with capitalization or spaces on here anymore. "mobydick" works just fine. :)

I find this quizz too English-speaking-oriented. I know it's an American site and all that, but still, it doesn't hurt to know literature from all over the world, does it?

Well yeah. Unsurprisingly, most English-speaking people spend their times speaking and reading in English, just like Urdu-speakers speak and read Urdu, and Spanish-speakers speak and read Spanish, etc. Even if they did put foreign-language literature on this list, it would be difficult to come up with answers for that. For example, "Cien Años de Soledad" is generally translated in English as "One Hundred Years of Solitude". However, in some areas "soledad" means "loneliness", so it could be translated as "One Hundred Years of Loneliness". Whose to say which one is "correct"? Or are we expecting people to be able to spell and understand original names like "Hong lou meng"/红楼梦 which is "Dream of the Red Chamber"? Just food for thought.

Books get translated and then they have an official English/German/Spanish name, so it won't be a problem. For example Jane Eyre is in Finnish Kotiopettajattaren romaani (governesses's novel) and LOTR in Swedish Sagan om ringen (story of the ring) and there's no arguing about 'real names' in any quiz. And in many countries translated books are almost as popular as books originally written in that language.

I saw telekinesis and typed "Carrie". Strange that the actual answer is also a single word and a girl's name.

"Heart of Darkness" only 33%? Shame, it's a fantastic book (and written by a Pole, which gives it extra point ;) )

You must admit that Apocalypse Now is a much catchier title than Heart of Darkness. I remembered that it was “...of Darkness,” but it took me a while to guess the right one.

Never even heard of Walden or the Phantom Tollbooth.
