Brief Summaries of Books You Were Supposed to Read but Probably Didn'tBook - 2018
"Abridged Classics is a witty collection of some of the major works of Western literature. John Atkinson, the creator of Wrong Hands cartoons, cleverly sums up these works in the least amount of words possible, enhanced by his delightfully deadpan illustrations. More than a hundred titles are included from Brave New World to Pride and Prejudice and Romeo and Juliet to The Great Gatsby. The literary endeavors contained in these pages— which make pithy molehills out of verbose mountains— are sure to amuse, confuse, educate, or irritate." -- Description provided by publisher.
