Book-A-Minute purports to offer “ultra-condensed” versions of the classics you know you should have read, along with an extensive selection of SF/Fantasy and children’s books, so that you can read them in considerably less time than the full-length version would require. In fact, this is a humor site, strictly for fun, and “ultra-condensed” is a pretty accurate description Here’s their version of Pride and Prejudice:
Mr. Darcy: Nothing is good enough for me.
Ms. Elizabeth Bennet: I could never marry that proud man.
(They change their minds.)
That’s it; the book in a nutshell. And what marvelous nutshells! Go on, try it. Head on over to Book-A-Minute’s website and look at some of your favorites. I challenge you to get through three of them without laughing. (You might start with their The Collected Works of e. e. cummings. The Hobbit, while probably the longest, is a hoot. And James Herriot’s children’s book, Only One Woof, is a marvel of brevity.)
The same people, incidentally, also have a website called Movie-A-Minute.
