is the most ingenious and entertaining book about classic literature that I have ever read.
n it, Sarah Schmelling takes the plots of classics and turns them into Facebook news feeds. There are also profiles of famous authors and characters, discussion boards between like-minded characters, and other fun Facebooks applications like quizzes and ads.

is hilarious for readers familiar with the literature covered. But even for the books I did not know, I found myself laughing while getting a general overview of the storylines.
chmelling has created a wonderful mix of classic literature and pop culture that should be on every bibliophile's shelf.
