Ratings and Reviews
New update is awful
For whatever reason, the update for this app caused it to become far worse. There is now a marked decrease in book summaries, absolutely no Faulkner at all and no notes on Lord of the Flies, for example. There is no search feature and the presentation before the update was much better.
Useful but could be more user friendly
It has the standard Literary novels that most students need to read sometime throughout their education. It is basic but has good content when describing the chapters and summaries. It would be nice if the reader at the bottom would also be an audio feature, not just visual. So while the words are being scanned at the bottom a voice would be projecting out what is being read.
This update is not organized at all and is a completely useless app now. It is now just summaries for a small amount of books, when before it gave ample amount of books, a search bar and detailed explanations of themes, characters, chapters etc. Please change!!!!! Deleting this app until change is made.
