You couldn't think of any books with a character's name as the title? I came up with David Copperfield. Was pretty confident it was wrong, but it was better than nothing.
I matched your guess. I thought it was unlikely to be correct, but at least gave me a better chance than the other title that wouldn't get out of my damn head...Moby Dick
Shortly after time was up, I decided that the wrong answer I should have given was The Count of Monte Cristo
, because the use of "guard" in the clue had me trying to think of a novel set in or around a prison, that also happened to have a title character, and none was coming to mind. Of course, I actually read The Count of Monte Cristo
in high school, and was fairly certain there were no trains featured prominently, so it really wouldn't have made much difference.
As to the anagram discussion earlier in the thread, I had to use my full first name, plus middle and last, just to get something that was even made up of actual words. My result: Jerk Staff Horny Fame...or should it be Horny Jerk Fame Staff? I'm still working out the order of the words. Fame Horny Jerk Staff perhaps?
For the first person to correctly give my middle name, I will award the 5 quatloos that I just won from Vanya.
