Can You Guess The Classic Novel From Its First Sentence?

In this literary quiz at Buzzfeed, you’ll be given the opening line to a novel, and you decide which of three books it came from. I guessed right on the books I’d actually read, but since I’ve always preferred nonfiction, that wasn’t many of them. The scoring seems pretty generous. I only had 9 out 17 right, but then it said, “Not bad! You took AP English didn’t you?” Ha! There wasn’t any such class when I was in school. Try the quiz yourself and let us know how you scored.

9 out of 17 here, too. Missed some that I'd read, got some right by process of elimination/guessing. It's been YEARS since I read any of these so I was happy enough.
