ABRIDGED CLASSICS: BRIEF SUMMARIES OF BOOKS YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO READ BUT PROBABLY DIDN’T
This is a hilarious compilation of synopses of the classics. The summaries are so brief that you might be hard-pressed to guess the book titles from the descriptions, 100% accurate as they may be. Give it a go – no peeking:
1. ‘Workplace romance gets fiery.’
2. ‘Senior’s dinner is eaten by sharks.’
3. ‘Irish lad is torn between the church and sex. So he becomes a writer.’ (Which covers quite a lot of Irish literature, to be honest.)
How did you do? There are plenty more where those came from, and each one is accompanied by a sweet illustration.
A summary of this actual book would probably be something like: ‘Many titles, few words, all funny.’ Which sounds like fun – and it is. Suzy Brokensha
