Great quiz, and if you feel like making a more nerdy/obscure version, I'd love it.

Small thing -- In the fourth set you have Brave New World and Great Expectations reversed in the fourth column when the answers come up.
Jan 12th, 2012 at 05:20 GMT
Holy crap. This quiz was fairly easy until the last category. I had to guess on every one of those.
Jan 13th, 2012 at 12:14 GMT
As always, these are wonderful quizzes... if one is a decent typist (I once was, but too old now to get the fingers moving quickly). I wish there was a way to be able to match up each column of answers with a letter and number rather than having to type everything out - that way it would be all about testing for knowledge rather than knowledge and typing ability.

Too much typing, not enough time, as usual. I would love these quizzes otherwise.

I like these quizzes, but I hate the format.
May 6th, 2013 at 20:10 GMT
Was fine until it was airport fiction... (with some trouble during SciFi)
May 6th, 2013 at 20:10 GMT
yeah, I agree. Having to type the same damn thing over and over is annoying :(
May 6th, 2013 at 20:26 GMT
Wow. Thats hard.
May 6th, 2013 at 21:01 GMT
Great questions, but hate the blitz...
May 6th, 2013 at 21:06 GMT
A very good quiz, but isn't it supposed to test one's knowledge of literature, rather than typing skill? Couldn't a key word from the title be acceptable, rather than the whole title? And, once we've answered 3/4, 4/5, or 5/6 from a group, it's a bit irksome to have to type the final answer. What else could it be?
May 6th, 2013 at 22:21 GMT
What didn't I get here--- other than how to do it?
May 6th, 2013 at 22:29 GMT
I think people should quit whining! Its a test of knowledge AND speed, otherwise its just the same as any other quiz. I found the time limit very well judged.
May 7th, 2013 at 02:42 GMT
I'm not whining, but I do legitimately hope someone can explain the format to me. I didn't understand what I was supposed to do.

@olelefthander, after clicking play, scroll down. You'll see a column with children's books and a column with author last names next to one another. Match the book with the author (type the left column answer and then the write column answer together - eg "Harry Potter Rowling"). After you do this for all of the pairs, you'll notice there is a third column off to the right. Reading downwards, you'll see a code. Type this code in and it will unlock the next level of the puzzle. Same process for each subsequent level.

Many thanks, @radioactive! Makes perfect sense once you see it. :)
May 7th, 2013 at 05:27 GMT
Love the quiz and concept, but too much typing, especially for mobile users. I'd suggest numbering the choices
May 7th, 2013 at 13:37 GMT
The code on plays and playwrights is missing a letter. I typed the letters that were there - nothing happened - added a letter to make a relevant word, and I got through to the next level.
May 7th, 2013 at 15:00 GMT
Lamb18: I think you must have missed a play/playwright. There are six. It seemed to me the quiz was randomly accepting some last names/partials and now others - frustrating. Time ran out for me half way through the last category but a note popped up saying "Hey, you just won"!
May 8th, 2013 at 09:39 GMT
Even though these types of quizzes tend to frustrate me to no end, I think I agree that the format is what makes it unique and worth playing. It's the challenge. Sometimes I do have to be in a certain mood to do these quizzes though.

This puzzle went fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH AIRPORT FICTION. Like really. I know people read it, but that doesn't mean people know it.
