Summaries Of Classic Books You Can Read In Under A Minute

Let's take a trip down memory lane to when you were a teenager in school. You're sitting in English class, Pride and Prejudice is open in front of you, it's long, and you're struggling to stay awake. You stayed up all night talking to your crush on the phone, and you haven't read the book, despite having a test on it tomorrow. There's no way you can physically read the whole thing in one night even if you wanted to; the language is too complicated. It's not an Instagram post; it's looooong AF! If only there were a condensed version that you could skim through on your bus ride home after school, you would ace that test, no problem. Well, now it does; Book-A-Minute is a website that as "taken all kinds of great works of literature and boiled them down to their essence, extracting all the filler (and believe me, there's a lot of it sometimes). In just one minute, you can read entire books and learn everything your teachers will expect you to know." It's genius, it's hilarious, and I love these condensed literary classics I never read when I was younger. It's like scrolling through an Instagram feed, but Shakespeare and Steinbeck are the influencers.
