Classic First Lines of Novels in Emojis: A Quiz

Maybe you’ve noticed a trend lately of people posting long strings of emojis as translated text. Those are a real pain for someone like me, who has neither the time not the inclination to parse them out. But then here comes Slate with a quiz about some short, familiar phrases. These  twelve strings of pictures are well-known first lines of classic novels that you know, rendered in emoji. Can you figure them out? I can’t say I did well, but I was proud to figure out a few. And your first impressions can be hilarious: for #3, I read "Here's an idea you're going to love! Let's cook eggplant!" When you’ve strained your brain enough, you can check the answers at Slate. -via mental_floss

It won't work at all unless you know the novel's opening line. I only got 1, 5, 7, and 12, because those were the lines I knew. I could guess the book in 8, but I couldn't remember the exact wording.
