    In the interest of full disclosure I only read some of these I started out with the books I'd read then I started skimming then skipping over most of everything The only even remotely funny one was Twilight because that book is so surface level it's easy to make fun ofWhat's wrong with this book is that to write effective parodies of literature you have to actually understand the literature really well This reads like sparknotes in tweet form and I can't help but feel like the authors of it only did read the sparknotes of most of these books The tweet stories fell flat for me because they were all written in the same annoying internet voice and they didn't offer any insight into any of the books or make fun of them very effectively either It's clearly a gimmick and it fails because summing up classics in tweets full of LOL and WTF is not ironic or cleverMostly it was boring and cringe worthy A bunch of shallow stupid summaries

    This book does not satirize the classics It outright mocks them and their authors and devotees with racist misogynistic and homophobic dude bro humor Disappointing Don't waste your time

    This book was a good idea but poorly executed Their claim that they twitterize classics was a bit of an exaggeration; I'd like to think that I'm pretty well read and I hadn't heard of a third of the books listed in here Despite that even for the books that I know very well the tweets were just not all that clever In some cases they went for the easy jokes rather than actually parodying the story I agree with the reviews on the front page this really does not bode well for the future generations

    No Just NO Why was this horrible thing created? How did this get published?? So many of these were just plain offensive to mass groups of people Perhaps if this book was trying to show what was wrong with society this may have worked But it is clear that this book's if you can even call this piece of crap a book purpose was to just make a mockery of classic literature Going into this I thought that this would be funny Actually genuinely funny not offensive funny which isn't funny at all Very few even got me to crack a smile and these were the most mild of them Also as you went on they just became so repetitive and it became a chore to read them I recommend this thing to absolutely no one I would give it like half of a star if I could The half star would simply be because this was a good idea just horribly executed

    I was expecting satire in the form of 140 character tweets of “Twitter literature” I was expecting to laugh or at least chuckle a little to myself But no What seemed to be a good idea evolved into racist sexist ableist homophobic and pretentious execution It starts with the arrogance of the introduction “We prefer to think of ourselves as modern day Martin Luthers” In reality the book was written by two college freshmen with a remedial understanding of the classics at best This book turned a substantial number of classics into “digestible portions of 20 tweets or fewer” and while marketed as satire merely came across as “dude bro” humor The “tweets” did come across however as disgustingly racist sexist and ableist with slurs such as gy gpsy and rtard Even if some of these words appear in the classics the tweets themselves are written with the type of disrespectful “humor” best left in 2009The main character of each classic was portrayed by the Twitter handle that they would have had had they actually tweeted their story Another seemingly good idea with poor execution Unlike the Twitter handles mentioned in the book real handles cannot have punctuation And don’t even get me started on Helen Keller’s “braille” Twitter handleIt appears from the first page that the writers confused satire with shock and awe value as the book’s dedication reads thus “Dedicated in Loving Memory to the Victims of the RMS Titanic” As a final note I would expect a satirical book to understand the content enough to spell the names correctly A book cannot successfully satirize Harry Potter and his nemesis “Voledemort”A disrespectful book full of crude and ignorant humor which I am than happy to return to my local library

    This book is a great idea SeriouslyThese two college freshman took all the great works of literature and condensed them into about 20 tweets all 140 characters or less The result at times is pretty funnyHowever there was excessive swearing and sexual innuendo and most of it was done in tweets for books that didn't need it I can understand using it in say Dracula or Catcher in the Rye those types However this was clearly done just for humor and shock value I don't understand why using swear words every other word is funnyI would have liked this book a whole lot if it had been hilarious without falling back on the idea that cursing is funny There's really little need for Jane Austen characters to be using the f word and such Same with Harry Potter There are other ways to make people laugh Make it funny because it's funny not because you have to rely on shocking peopleI gave it 2 stars because there WAS a lot funny about it but I was annoyed a lot of the time too


  8. says:

    Twitterature is pretty fun and light hearted Don't read it if you don't like the idea of fun being poked at classic books or things like Sherlock Holmes' use of cocaine to be emphasised etc The humour wears a little thin after you've read a lot of them and it's easiest to appreciate when you've already read the classic in uestionI think this'd be fun to dip into than to actually sit down and read straight through

    I am not a Twitter fan at the best of times and I don't use it Now I know why 'Twitterature' purports to be 'The World's Greatest Books Retold Through Twitter' well the best of luck because even books that I have read make little sense through the twitter comments and those books not read are almost completely meaningless or senseless And the comments are nearly all certainly unfunny I appreciate it could be me being something of a Luddite as far as Twitter is concernedI feel sure that there is something clever in being able to tweet such things about books but they do nothing for me and when initials are used to state something I usually haven't a clue what they mean; I only know such simple ones as LOL and OMG and although I don't want to know WTF which I do not like the use ofFor 'Sherlock Holmes' I read 'Puffing the pipe A pounding at the door Go away Woman in distress crying Watson terrorised the fair sex again? No Perhaps a mystery' Yes perhaps a mystery because I wonder what all that is about And one of my favourite books 'The Three Musketeers' has 'I have to go on a diamond heist with my boyz Athos is riding shotgun in the carriage' So what? And although the first part of this next one is rather sensible the rest leaves me cold 'Aramis wants to be a priest Maybe I shouldn't have said all that nasty stuff about the clergy and little boys'There is the odd mildly amusing comment in 146 pages but this book is definitely not for me I will be sending it to a charity shop for someone else to analyse or pass on
