Cliffs Notes for the Internet Generation

Need help understanding a piece of classic literature? Surely you’ve heard of Cliffs Notes. There’s also another line of learning books called SparkNotes published by Barnes & Noble.

What I found interesting is that both of their websites offer free and complete content online for many titles like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time and Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land

SparkNotes even offers notes on movies like Spirited Away, The Lord of the Rings, A Clockwork Orange and, perhaps needed most of all, The Matrix Trilogy.
