Ultra-Condensed Classic Books

English teachers have the inconsiderate habit of assigning mammoth-sized works of literature to read and then actually expecting you to do it. This wouldn’t be so bad except that invariably the requisite reading is as boring as fly fishing in an empty lake. Half of those books don’t even have discernible plots. Worry no more. Your troubles are over. Here’s a list of classic literature boiled down to its essence, extracting all the filler (and believe us, there’s a lot of it). In just few seconds, you can read entire books and learn everything your teachers will expect you to know. Please note: we can’t be held responsible if you write a book report or research paper using our site and don’t get a good grade.
