Book-A-Minute Classics

We presume you’ve heard of CliffsNotes or literary abridgements but this really takes the biscuit. Book-A-Minute Classics condense classic literature down to a few sentences. This is clearly tongue-in-cheek but it’s interesting to see the “essence” of some of the most famous novels in the English language in such a reduced form.

Here’s an example from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens:

Ebenezer Scrooge: Bah, humbug. You’ll work thirty-eight hours on Christmas Day, keep the heat at five degrees, and like it.

Ghost of Jacob Marley: Ebenezer Scrooge, three ghosts of Christmas will come and tell you you’re mean.

Three Ghosts of Christmas: You’re mean.

Ebenezer Scrooge: At last, I have seen the light. Let’s dance in the streets. Have some money.
