Consider READING? ,

Useful. Effective. Helped me pass a class.

Each year In English, they would always give you a book for reading. I don’t particularly like reading and would always find ways to sneak out of doing homework. This app is great for doing that. I passed my sophomore English class without reading more than 100 pages of the book.

The thing about this app is that they provide very detailed analysis and so if I dont want to read the book I would just read the summaries and analysis on this app to help me prepare for what to say during class discussions. Works 100%.

This might not work with tests though. Because the point of these summaries is to summarize the entire chapter into a short paragraph so they skip a lot of small details that your teacher might ask on the test. But as long as you pay attention and read at least a little bit your good to go.

Thanks for this life saving app.

I absolutely love this app!!

This app is amazing and I am eternally grateful to the person(s) who brought it to life. I really can’t find a flaw, and that is because this app is just so organized and abundant in accurate information. The only thing I can say is that more books should be added to the collection. Other than that, this app is on the right track in regards to meeting the needs of its users.

Amazing App!

If you don’t want to read a book, you should definitely get this app. It gives you detailed summaries and breakdowns of each chapter, and gives you the plot, characters, full book summary, and much more. I used to use this app on safari, but then i discovered that it had an app! This is very useful for any student, or adult! I 100% recommend!
