telling it how it is

Hey guys, maybe you’ve heard or maybe you’ve been living under a rock without internet access last week, but Kim and Kanye finally welcomed their (shockingly) tiny bundle of joy into the world. Of course, everyone over here at The Book Report Network is thrilled, and kind of obsessed. So in honor of little North West, I have no choice but to break down the Dickens classic, GREAT EXPECTATIONS for all y’all. I know it’s a little bit of a stretch, but we have nothing if not big hopes for the daughter of such talented megastars (I’m thinking she’ll have mad flow, charisma aaand…really pretty hair?) Anyway, welcome to the good life, baby Nori!
Hi guys. Emily here, and I’m ready to begin Telling It Like It Is: Classics Edition™. I’m going to revisit some of the classics I read in high school (for class and for FUN --- because, come on, most of this stuff is seriously uh-mazing) and break them down in "Real Talk." Because, although a good classic has universal and timeless appeal, we’re modern kids with our own modern way of processing and sharing information, (I mean, how much easier would Gatsby’s pursuit of Daisy have been if he could just Facebook her?) and sometimes we need to express ourselves that way. Oh and *SPOILER ALERT* in case you haven't taken sophomore English yet.
