Welcome to Lit Trivia, the Book Review’s multiple-choice quiz designed to test your knowledge of books and literary culture. Some authors create characters that are too complex to be contained in just one novel, and this week’s challenge asks you to identify the sequels to five best-selling books. The original novels were published from 1985 to 2021, but their relatively recent sequels were all published within the past 10 years.
Just tap or click on the title you think is correct to see the answer and a snippet of the sequel’s review in The Times. After the last question, you’ll find links to both the first and second books.
