Sigh...typed Angels and Demons for Robert Langdon. I know Da Vinci Code was more popular, but Angels and Demons was FAR more the superior novel...plus I couldn't think of the title of The Da Vinci Code, so there's that...

Yeah, but the lost symbol wasn't any good. I barely finished it. And the most recent one, I stopped reading halfway through.

Could 'Millennium Series' work for Lisbeth Salander? The instructions say to enter the book and series and that is the name of the series she features in.

SMH. I'm reading 1984 right now and didn't get that one. In my defense there isn't a whole lot of dialogue or people referring to others names.

That's part of makes it so difficult to get through. It's still an all-time classic, but readability isn't its strong point.

I find it both readable and enthralling, but it does a good job at making the main characters seem insignificant by not often referring to them by name. This was not a mistake, but an intentional method employed by Orwell to extend the dystopian mood (which I think that a lot of modern dystopian novels could learn from).

Please add 1001 Nights as an acceptable answer -- that's its actual name. "Arabian" was added later on when the stories were imported to the Occient.

Isn't Mr. Darcy in Bridget Jones' Diary also? Once I got onto that, I had no shot at Pride and Prejudice. I believe it is a subtle reference to that same Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, but the character is quite important if I remember correctly as he is the fodder in her diary.

...and as far as most famous--that's quite subjective at this point, as more people are probably familiar with Bridget Jones' Diary than Pride and Prejudice beyond at least title recognition.

I'm going to disagree heartily with your assertion that Bridget Jones' Diary is more famous than Pride and Prejudice. I have some faith in humanity left.

Not me. I've never read Bridget Jones but I've read P&P many times. Probably an age thing.

It's not a subtle reference. The whole book is based upon Pride and Prejudice and is effectively a modern day retelling of it.

I tried "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest" which didn't work, so then went with the first in the series ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"), which did work. Think any of the titles should be accepted.
