Can you guess these famous first lines from classic books? Take the literary quiz to find out! I’ll give you the opening line from a classic novel, and you identify which book it comes from!
As a book lover, it brings me great delight that I’m married to another book lover. One of the nerdy things we like to do is quiz each other on quotes from books, especially the opening lines. It just feels good to test your literary prowess…especially when it’s against someone who also takes pride in their literary prowess!
I’m banking on the fact that if you’re reading this, you are probably somewhat of a book nerd yourself. Ergo, you may enjoy the challenge of testing your literary knowledge! I’ve prepared a little quiz for you on first lines from classic books. See how many you know…or make an educated guess for the ones you don’t!
There are two quiz options: Advanced, where you’re ONLY given the first line and must answer with the corresponding book title; and multiple choice, where you are given 4 possible options to choose from.
What’ll it be for you? Choose your poison below…
