Very entertaining. Only quibble is that Quixote ends in an 'ay' sound, rather than an 'ee'.

In spanish, it's actually pronounced "Ki-ho-teh".With a hard H in "ho" (like in "José"), and no "ay".

I love the high percentage implied by the figures, that got all of Port noise com play aint and simply weren't any the wiser. But you have to be a certain age to have even heard of it (it was published when I was 8), and as far as I know it has never been adapted for the screen.

After this quiz I will never be able to hear that title and not think about it containing the phrase "noise complaint."

Not that I expect to hear it often, of course . . .

@cornflakesfu I suppose someone who lives down by the docks might have a port noise complaint.

Once people heard it was banned for obscenity in several countries, of course everyone wanted to read it. Richard Benjamin also starred in the film adaptation of Goodbye Columbus, another Roth book.

Some of these are pretty clever. I was especially fond of the literary clue, "Animal that is more equal than others." Very fitting!

Maybe add some different spellings for Cassie. I tried every single spelling I could think of except for that one. I have several friends who are named Cassandra and none of them shorten it to Cassie. Maybe accept "Casey" or "Kasey" or "KC"
