It’s no secret; I love a good book. The past few months I’ve inhaled books like a fiend needing another hit. Yesterday, I was hanging out on the awesome book blog Dope Reads looking for another tome to check out, when I came across a video called “Thug Notes,” which offers reviews of classic books.
Hosted by Sparky Sweets, PhD, “Thug Notes” offers a brief plot synopsis, thematic analysis, and an amazingly easy overview of some of the most widely read (and assigned) books. All in under five minutes.
According to the “Thug Notes” YouTube page, the show is described as the “main hookup for classical literature summary and analysis. Maybe you’ve read the Cliffs Notes. Maybe you even read the book. But you ain’t know sh*t until you watched the Thug Notes homie.”
So far, the weekly series has covered The Great Gatsby, 1984, Pride and Prejudice, To Kill A Mockingbird, and Crime and Punishment. What book should “Thug Notes” cover next?
