    A hilarious take on some of the best works of English literature. A well-organised and easy-to-understand book containing synopses and analyses of anything from 'Fahrenheit 451' to 'Romeo and Juliet' (and it complements the YouTube videos perfectly).

    Hilarious! It's a great way to get those who think classic literature is 'boring' to actually pay attention. My teenage niece and nephew are now actively searching for the books to read after hearing the thug notes version.Very clever way to disguise serious critical dissection of the content into relatable topics and to current events.

    I'm a big follower of Wisecrack's Youtube series Thug Notes; which is why I wanted to get the book. However, after purchasing the book the quality of the publishing i.e. the paper it is printed on and the cover is very cheap and nasty, closer to bog roll. The content is good and enjoyable but the poor manufacturing is my only quib.
