An observation: why are your properties for the quotes class not in the same order as the JSON text?

(To the troll: I have no idea if it makes a difference to serialization).

Your code works fine for me with the sample input. You'll need to debug your code to find out what the problem is. There's not enough information here for anyone to solve the problem for you.

There is a online JSON to C# class converter. You input the json string and it pops out a simple c# class definition.
