Angels and Demons isn't a prequel. It was written 3 years before The Da Vinci Code.

By the strictest definition it might not be, although the events of the book precede The DaVinci Code. The movie version, with which the larger audience will be familiar, is certainly a prequel as the movie version came out after the movie version of the DaVinci Code.

You two are confusing me. Prequel is what happens BEFORE. So movie version coming out after something doesn't make it a prequel. And being written earlier isn't necessary proof of something being a prequel or not. Maybe Star Wars with chapters 1,2,3 coming out after 4,5,6 confuse you of the meaning of "prequel". That said, I am not familiar with Angels and Demons, so no idea if it is setting up the scene for the Da Vinci Code or not.

Besides. It says "predecessor" right now at least. Which just means it was written first...

I changed it to "predecessor" based on fuanacdc's complaint. In the exceptionally technical sense, a prequel is a story that is written after the original work, but tells the events that occurred before it. Fuanacdc's complaint is that the book Angels & Demons was both written before, and tells the events that occurred before The DaVinci Code. This means it is not a "true" prequel.

Yes, that is what I was getting at, thanks. Those two books were written in the order in which the events occur. It would only be considered a prequel if the book told the events that happened prior to an already established story line. Since this is a literature quiz and not a movie quiz, the order the movies were released is really a moot point.

I read the clue as "professor of DaVinci Code" and thought it was asking about the guy's name. Might have gotten it otherwise.

"Animal Farm" is not about Napoleon, it's about Stalin and the Russian Revolution of 1917.

But the central pig is called Napoleon, which is what the quiz is getting at.

Yeah, but that's *really* obscure. How about "book about Stalin" or "book about totalitarianism." I know my Animal Farm this didn't occur to me.

I was thrown for a moment too. I thought it was about Napoleon Bonaparte, but then I figured it out. It's fine how it is.

Yes those are both A answers, but I could have put a Harry Potter and LOTR question on every quiz and I didn't want to be too repetitive.

How can Ann be accepted for Anne of Green Gables? Pages and pages of the book are dedicated to the character's insistence on "Anne with an e."

Correct. This absolutely needs to be changed. Anne would never accept Ann. She would assume you meant a different person. Same with Katherine with a C.

While I sympathize with Anne's desire to be properly spelled, if I didn't accept "Ann" I would have a whole host of commenters complaining that the "e" was required. Can't please everyone.

Someone didn't understand Animal Farm at all, if they think it is about Napoleon the person, over whom this quiz creator is clearly thinking it was written about. It's about communism and the Russian Revolution, and the ideology that those who are controlled and still have leaders, will never be truly equal.
