Favorite: The Stand
Honorable Mention: Deliverance

Least Favorite: Remembrance of Things Past

Best Hero: Nick Andros from The Stand
Best Heroine: Mother Abagail from The Stand

Best Villain: Randall Flagg from The Stand
Dishonorable mention: Not a villain, just ughhh! Kenneth Widmerpol from A Dance to the Music of Time

Most interesting/Complex character: Bigger Thomas from Native Son

Best Quotation: I do think that families are the most beautiful things in all the world! ~ Jo March from Little Women

Best Subtitle: No subtitles in the group, but Remembrance of Things Past is alternately titled In Search of Lost Time

Best film adaptation: Deliverance (film of the same title)

Worst film adaptation: 2005 The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (though, I believe the quirkiness of this satirical Sci-fi comedy would be extremely difficult to capture adequately in a two-hour film).

    1. When I get around to my quest wrap up post, I'll explain what next...but basically still reading, still blogging, not quite so exclusively novels or classics.
