Which book are you most likely to lie about?
Following the popularity of War and Peace, the BBC commissioned a survey to find out which classics most readers lie about reading.
A quarter of those surveyed said they were prepared to lie about reading a classic. 17 per cent of readers were more likely to lie if the classic had been adapted for TV or feature film.
So, is War and Peace at the top of the list? No it is not; it does however make its way into the top five, sitting comfortably in fourth place.
The book that got the most votes for its ability to create liars of the reading public was Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland.
