A funny thing language is. I have never read huckleberry finn, but the way that sentence was written paineted a time and scene for me which made me think of the book (I even dont know anything about the content of the book)

I've read the book and was so sure that this is the answer. Unfortunately I didn't know that in English Finn is written with two n's. :/

It’s a proper name. Why would it be translated?

I'm not saying it would be translated. All I'm saying is that I didn't know the proper way to spell it. In my language the name is written like that: Фин. Even if you can't read it, you'll notice it's only three letters. The reason: the English double n is written with a single н. And since I maybe have seen the book title only once or twice in English and haven't payed that much attention to it, I've never noticed that the correct spelling is Finn.

I tried Huckleberry Fin, then I was stumped. Sad, I didn't try two n's.

In many languages, including Russian, doubled consonants are read differently from single consonants. In English they aren't. Proper nouns, are not often translated, but they're often transliterated, usually based on the sound of the name, not its spelling in the original, so "Finn" is transliterated as "Фин", which, transliterated back into English (as for this quiz) would be "Fin."

I've read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but not Through the Looking Glass, so I was surprised when I guessed this correctly, just because the wording sounded like Carroll.

Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.

I'm ashamed to say that my first try for the "workers unite" quote was Animal Farm. I'm a bit less ashamed that my first try for "depending on the kindness of strangers" was Steel Magnolias. (At least that quote was referenced in the movie.)
