From Anna Karenina and Beowulf to Ulysses and Wuthering Heights , SnarkNotes condenses the great (but long and complicated) novels, plays, and poems of world lit into bite-size nuggets, cutting out the bloated analysis and nauseating debate of other reading guides. Each of the 100 books profiled is a classic that everyone knows but only hardcore lit majors have actually read. Now you, too, can: Blather about books you were supposed to read for class but didn't; fudge literary discussions at fancy parties; impress a date with your knowledge and wit; and slice through the ivory tower to read like a ninja . Each entry contains: a quick and dirty narrative description of plot, including twists and surprise endings, told with humorous brevity; famous quotes accompanied by smartass responses; and the original cover or an illustration conveying the work's tone (or lack thereof). Brief author bios--including misdeeds and scandals--add illuminating and occasionally disgusting background to each work. All of the text appears in simple, contemporary English, so it's easy to understand and short enough to tweet.
