    The Original Titles Of 15 Classic Novels

    The world probably would have been a much different place had some of these original titles stuck. I mean, would have taken the author of "Four and a Half Years of Struggle Against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice" seriously?


    Atlas Shrugged

    Brideshead Revisited



    Gone With The Wind


    (Nabokov later ended up titling a book "A Kingdom by the Sea".)

    Mein Kampf

    Pride And Prejudice

    The Ice Storm

    (F.F. is short for "Fantastic Four" which is a play on "Fortissimo".)

    The Sun Also Rises

    To Kill A Mockingbird

    War And Peace

    The Great Gatsby
