I should have added that I also answered all three questions correctly, even though I have never actually read the original book. But for those who have you can re take it with a different passage.
Perhaps I should also say that I followed the link from the science and tech section of the Daily Wail, where they make the (to me) valid comment about how internet usage has changed not only the way we read but how as well. I'm not going to post a link, but if anyone is interested it isn't hard to find.
311wpm first time which was harder as I didn't know what context the story was in, once I knew it was The war of the worlds it was 399wpm. I felt a way through the story line then.
25:39 hrs to read The Lord of the Rings and 7:15 hrs to read a Tale of two Cities.
That's complete rubbish 'cause it takes me about 6 weeks to do LOTRs intensively and I've never gotten past a quarter of an inch of pages with a Tale of two Cities, I can't get on with the reading style of some Dickens, and that's one of them!
