Famous Last Words Quiz

Great job, Miss Bermudaonion!

Here’s how to play…Identify the last lines of these famous novels by telling me what book it’s from. Leave a comment with the # of the last line and the title of the book and I’ll cross it off the list. No Googling, that’s cheating and no fun! If you know them all, please don’t guess every one, maybe five max? Mid week I’ll offer hints if needed.
