Let’s be honest: sometimes you're asked to read an “important” book that you don't want or have time to read. Sometimes you try and it’s just so boring and impenetrable that you can’t get through it. And then, even worse, sometimes you’re asked to take a test or write a paper about it. If that sounds familiar, then BookHacker was designed for you.
BookHacker summaries strip away all the subtlety and stuffiness of literature’s classic works (100% “thou”-free guaranteed) and get right to the point. Taking away all the guess work, BookHacker presents the book's warm gooey center in a concise, logical and entertaining way. Just because literary classics can be dry and boring doesn't mean understanding them has to be.
In Mark Twain’s, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, BookHacker tags along with Huck and Jim as they escape from book learnin’ and slavery on a raft down the Mississippi River in 1840s America. In one of American literature’s great coming of age stories, BookHacker helps you identify and explain all the hypocrisy Huck finds during a series of wild adventures complete with murder, racism, and even more racism.
"I'm not going to lie--I used this to get out of having to read the book for class and it worked" Steven, 10th grade
“BookHacker gave me exact details and plotting, EXACTLY everything I needed to get through a dry, tough book” Rebecca, college freshman
“This was surprisingly cool and honest. Would I want my teachers to know I used it? No, but that's why it's worth buying." Andrew, 12th grade

Witty and fun, it's a quick road to understanding. With this Book Hacker, I have all the ammunition I need to successfully write about Huck Finn - and even to intelligently discuss the many characters, themes, and symbols important to the novel.
