Let me say it again, just so we're all clear:
This is exactly what is wrong with this damn country - Twitterature!
The twits at Penguin publishing have commission two 19 year old twits to whittle some of the greatest book even written into 20 "tweets" so the inept twits of our society have no reason to learn about literary structure and imagery.
I hate cliff notes.
I loath abridged stories.
There isn't even a word for how awful I think this is.
It's more than just giving student a easy way to get a C-grade in english classes. Giving people these short cuts starves their mind of the amazing experience of reading these incredible works of fiction. It's no wonder they have to focus on books with dead authors, no self respecting author would allow two teenaged twits to condense the essence of their writing into 20 "tweets"!!
I may never purchase a book published by Penguin again. Whoever is responsible for this decision clearly has no respect for literature or education.
We should all be screaming right now.
