With 90 CLASSIC BOOKS FOR PEOPLE IN A HURRY in your pocket, you’ll have dinner party credibility quicker than you can say The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha.

Great for people in a hurry or just anyone who likes books.

Awesome

:
This is truly an awesome app. The comics are pretty funny and well-drawn, and give you a basic understanding of the story. Couple of problems, though. The price is a bit high for how many short comics you get, and some of the spellings are off which is a bit strange. Overall, I'd say it would be worth it if it was $1 and you liked comics/books.

3/5 stars

Funny ideas and cartoons, poor execution of lists

:
The short panel depictions of great books are funny and well done, but given 4 panels x 90 books - the fun can only last so long. Finding a book by title or author is much harder than it should be. With only 90 titles, tables like that used in Music app (with an index bar) would be more useful.

0/5 stars

Horrible

A HUGE WASTE OF MONEY
