Despite my Twitter rant, I do like...

...this experiment in converting legit lit to short form. The idea of conveying something as nuanced as Jane Austen's Persuasion within the constraints of something like Twitter is interesting on an intellectual level. Some of the time it's funny; other times it's obvious that Austen cannot be edited down.

Either way, I'm glad that the speed read version can't hold a candle to the real deal.
