Isn't it "Rarnaby Budge"? Or, wait, maybe that's the one by Charles Dikkens, the well-known Dutch author.

Pickwick Papers as a bonus?
Sep 4th, 2010 at 18:09 GMT
Little Dorrit, Dombey and Son, and Edwin Drood might also be considered as bonuses.

definatly need Edwin Drood
Sep 18th, 2010 at 00:13 GMT
But do you have a list of books by Charles Dickkens with 2 k's (the well-known Dutch author)? David Coperfield (with 1 p), Rarnaby Budge, and of course Knickerless Nickleby.
Sep 18th, 2010 at 00:32 GMT
They don't have Charles Dickkens with 2 k's (the well-known Dutch author) and perhaps to save time, they don't have Karnaby Fudge by Darles Chickens, Farmer of Sludge by Marles Pickens or even Stickwick Stapers by Farles Wickens with four M's and a silent Q. Why don't you try Sprout C.M.'s? On a serious note though, Edwin Drood wouldn't be quite right, as the full title is The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
Sep 18th, 2010 at 01:11 GMT
I think that The Mystery of Edwin Drood should and shouldn't be put here. The title isn't just the name, and being that the only person ever to know the end died with the story it's not really a full novel. Unfinished with a few Dickens' notes but even that only goes so far along the tale.

@ califuzzy: Did you try WH Smiths?
Sep 18th, 2010 at 12:07 GMT
@jam6i: The title isn't just the name of several of the others listed here - they tend to be 'The Adventures of ...' or variations on that.

Why is Little Dorritt showing up as the phantom #6? It says I got 4 out of 5 right but shouldn't it be 5 out of 6? Just curious. (freaking Martin Chuzzlewit....)

You could easily do another quiz of Dickens' novels WITHOUT anyone's name (even indirectly as in Pickwick Papers). I could give examples, but that would be spoiling, wouldn't it? On the other hand, only a handful of the canonical Sherlock Holmes stories (long and short) have someone's or some family's name in them, although I think more of them have a real or fictional place name.

I followed my own hint, and created a game of the six Dickens novels with no name at http://www.sporcle.com/games/shakescene/nameless_dickens
Sep 20th, 2010 at 01:36 GMT
Sometimes you have to wonder what was running through Mr. Dickens' mind when he came up with these names.

Barnaby Rudge is A protagonist, but not THE protagonist of the novel named for him.
