Wow, I'm really horrible! I only got 50% right. It makes me want to read more.CD
I am obviously a good guesser. ;o)
70% for me
90% makes me sound knowledgeable when really I am just quite good at guessing. Or should I say deducing?
Woohoo, 80%, which just goes to show, I can guess as well as the rest of em (-;
Clarissa - Don't feel bad; those sleuths don't know much about you, either :-).Norman -...or a very well-read crime fiction fan :-).Kerrie - Not bad at all; you know your sleuths.Bernadette - I like the word deducing. After all, this is about sleuths. And you are knowledgeable.Vanda - Hey, even the finest sleuths guess at times. Why not you? ;-).
I didn't do well at all. I can see now there are a few authors I really need to brush up on. Only 20%. I hang my head in shame as I go to read. Loved the quiz though.MasonThoughts in Progress
Mason - I'm glad you loved the quiz :-). The fact is, crime fiction's got so many different sub-genres, authors and great sleuths that it'd be impossible to know them all well.
Only 50% and two of those were detectives we read in class this semester.
Mack - There are so many detectives out there, aren't there? So hard to keep track of them all and really get to know them all well...
Great quiz, Margot!Enjoyed it.50% correct.Not bad :).
Good one! Especially the clue about Mr. Holmes. I had to read it completely to get it right. At 60% I think my "little grey cells" are due for an overhauling! :)
I hang my head in shame - I got only 40% right, and have read less than a handful of the choices :-(
Christine - Glad you enjoyed it :-). And with so many terrific crime fiction novels and sleuths out there, a score of 50% is, indeed, not bad.Amey - I'm so glad you liked the quiz. And I enjoyed doing that particular clue, so I'm glad you found it a good one. And I don't think there's anything wrong with your "little grey cells." :-)Rayna - No need at all for shame. I'm sure that you've done quite a lot of reading of other sleuths and other great books. There are just too many fine books out there...
Thanks for sharing this quiz, Margot - it was fun! I'm sure you got 100%, but I got way, way less. It was a humbling experience.
I am at 20% as well. My only defense is I have not read many of the older authors/books.
Elspeth - Oh, no need to feel humble at all. There are just too many sleuths out there to keep track of them all...Kevin - No need to mount a defense. The beauty of crime fiction is that there is so much of it in different sub-genres that it's impossible to read it all...
This is obviously a brilliant quiz - I got 90 % without guessing much. Well, it is probably because you have such a great taste in heroes, Margot. :O
Dorte - LOL!! I knew you'd do well on this one, as well-read as you are and with such a good memory. Glad you enjoyed it :-)
