Trivia Tuesday: Literary Characters Edition

In last week's Trivia Tuesday, Mystery Man stated that the questions were too easy. I don't think he'll say the same thing this week. Your challenge for this week is to name the well-known (or not so well-known) literary characters.

1. In J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy classic, “The Lord of the Rings,” who is the keeper of the ring?

2. Wade Hampton, Ella, and Bonnie are the names of whose children from a 1934 book, which later became a hit movie?

3. In Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” with whom does Elizabeth fall in love?

4. Paul Atreides is the name of the hero in what Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel?

5. Frederic Henry is the name of Ernest Hemingway’s central male character in what novel?

6. Jo, Beth, Any, and who are the four sisters in Louisa Mary Alcott’s “Little Women?”

7. Who is the ‘gypsy brat’ in “Wuthering Heights” with whom Catherine falls in love?

8. What is the name that Mark Twain’s central character in “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” gives his princess?

9. Winston Smith and Julia are the names of the central characters in what 1959 ‘Big Brother’ novel?

10. Becky Sharp is the main character in what William Makepeace-Thackery novel?

Amazingly, our team scored an 8 out of 10, though I probably only knew 3 or 4. As always, please leave your answers in the comments section below. At least for now, please do not use the internet for answers. Good luck!
