Below are twelve concluding lines from twelve books you may have read. Which ones are attributed to the correct novel?
1. All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque: I lingered round them, under that benign sky; watched the moths fluttering among the heath, and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers, for the sleepers in that quiet earth.
2. Catch-22, Joseph Heller: The knife came down, missing him by inches, and he took off.
3.Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger: Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.
4. Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoyevsky: yes I said yes I will Yes.
5. Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell: Tomorrow, I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day.
6. Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad: So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
7. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte: Daily He announces more distinctly, ‘Surely I come quickly!’ and hourly I more eagerly respond, ‘Amen; even so come, Lord Jesus!’
8. Lady Chatterley's Lover, D.H. Lawrence: L--d! said my mother, what is all this story about?——A COCK and a BULL, said Yorick——And one of the best of its kind I ever heard.
9. Naked Lunch, William S. Burroughs: The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
10. Rabbit, Run, John Updike: But that is the beginning of a new story - the story of the gradual renewal of a man, the story of his gradual regeneration, of his passing from one world into another, of his initiation into a new unknown life. That might be the subject of a new story, but our present story is ended.
11. The Master and Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov: His ravaged memory quiets down, and no one will trouble the professor until the next full moon: neither the noseless murderer of Gestas, nor the cruel fifth procurator of Judea, the knight Pontius Pilate.
12. Ulysses, James Joyce: He drew a deep breath. “Well, I’m back,” he said.
