Really enjoying this series. There's a typo - Finch not Fitch!

As above: Finch, not Fitch. Also, A Farewell To Arms is an account of the Spanish civil war, not WW1. Excellent quizzes, though - really enjoying them.

Atticus et al's family name is definitely Finch, but "For Whom the Bell Tolls" is indeed about WWI. Are you sure you're not thinking of the reporting he did during the Spanish Civil War? I think he was involved in a documentary too, and maybe a play? I do know he started getting really into bullfighting in Spain, and he wrote "Death in the Afternoon" while there.

My mistake. I apologise. Ironically, you said For Whom the Bell Tolls, which is the Spanish civil war account I was thinking of!

For the Ray Bradbury book, I typed "Fahrenheit" then spent like 90 seconds trying to remember the number before I looked back at the screen and realized it already gave me credit. Good lookin' out, quiz!

Lol, I was the opposite: I was 98% certain the number was 451, but I couldn't remember where the Hs went in the word fahrenheit so I kept rewriting the whole thing. I was thinking maybe I had the number wrong when apparently stumbled on the right spelling of "fahrenheit", which I had apparently not tried yet X-D

the only reason I know how to spell it is because we read it in 9th grade and had to write it all. the. time. eventually I got in the habit of saying it like fah-ren-heit to remember where all the hs go!

Just a small thing, but I believe it's 'Fahrenheit-451' with a dash.

Nope. Dr Faustus was the character in the play by Christopher Marlowe. Goethe's character is called Faust.

What about Fairy Story/Tale for "Elves & magic"?

I feel like the fatwa one really isn't a good fit for this quiz. Its connection to literature is REALLY tenuous. Just because one was issued once, calling for the death of an author, doesn't really make it a literature thing in my opinion. But then I'm not the quizmaker I suppose.

Yea it doesnt belong in a literary quiz imo (unless ofcourse it is about a book written in the subject for instance).

otherwise you could use jack because he got thrown a book at him. Or table, if someone uses it to stabalize it if one leg is shorter.
