Miss Kunta Kinte because I was pronouncing it wrong in my head. I don't think I would have spelled it that way.
and shocked that there are no characters here from Twilight, Harry Potter, or the LotR.

Did we take the same quiz? Because Twilight and Harry Potter are both there, and LotR, if you count Bilbo as being from there instead of The Hobbit.

Agreed, and Bilbo was in both Fellowship and Return of the King, as well as the Hobbit.

Never heard of "His Dark Materials" series. Got them all except that and Beowulf -- wasn't sure how to spell it!

Golden Compass shouldn't work - it's a film, not a book

I can never remember "His Dark Materials", and tried Subtle Knife because that's a title I can remember. I'd appreciate it if each novel's name could be accepted as alternates.

I think you may be confusing 'Apocalypse Now' with 'Heart of Darkness', on which it's based.

Thanks for accepting "Life according to Garp" even though it's dead wrong. I've read the book several times though. On Iago I also tried Aladdin, but I don't think there ever was a book like that.

I regret to admit that the only Portnoy I'm familiar with is Jack Black's character on Tropic Thunder. That was a good movie, though.

People don't know Grendel? What? It was the first thing I learned in English class (that and Canterbury tales). The again, Romeo and Juliet isn't scored that high either, but on the other hand, they chose a secondary character.

I guess other stuff gets taught in the US and the UK
