How did I forget Great Expectations!

I had great expectations as I began this quiz, but then quickly realized how little I knew.

A Tale of Two Cities!!! *facepalm*

I got the two I was forced to read.

That, plus the one I tried to read because it's so famous but couldn't finish because it's so dull.

and to think that people were so eager to find out what happened in the next installment of some of these stories that it caused riots at the docks where they were being unloaded.

Hi QM....despite the fix, "Martin Chuzzlewit" and "Dombey and Son" are still out of sequence.

Didn't do too badly only missed the ones I've never heard of, although it has to be said that was quite a few!

Knew several of these from watching PBS Masterpiece Theater.

Hahaha! Masterpiece Theater allowed me to develop a pretty good English accent! (at least that's what my friends from London say)
Level 41

All I knew were Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations!

Yay I feel proud. I got 5 :D

I only know Our Mutual Friend because I was an enormous Lost fan in the 2000s.

Believe it or not, there are some of us who love Dickens! The first time I read Pickwick, I laughed out loud many times. My 90-pound German Shepherd once ate part of my copy of Tale...I paid to have it repaired and rebound. The PBS production of Martin C. is worth watching just for the characters....

Dickens characters are the best! Comic, tragic, morbid, ridiculous, sublime ... each is truly unique. I especially love their names! I mean, what else could you name Uriah Heep? He's the heepiest of all heeps. ;)

Remembered Martin Chuzzlewit but not Oliver Twist!

Same, except I forgot A Tale of Two Cities

Rarnaby Budge? A Sail of Two Titties? Grate Expectations?

Could there maybe be a caveat to say it includes his novellas? I am feeling just a little bit cheated :-/
