Classic works of literature are classics for a reason: they contain universal truths about the human experience. The only problem is, you have to read them. Have you seen how long some of these books are?! Bleak House is like 50,000 pages. Clearly, Charles Dickens was writing in a time when the main source of entertainment was sitting by the fire and watching your friends die of dysentery.

Nobody has time to read these doorstops masquerading as literature. Luckily for us, the fine folks over at Book-A-Minute have been condensing classic titles down to just a few sentences–basically, it’s Cliff’s Notes for Cliff’s Notes. Here are 15 classic titles reduced to a one-liner. You can blow through them and get back to what’s really important: insulting strangers on social media.
