Famous Literature Told in Emojis

Are you a visual learner? Is the ornate, antiquated language of a Victorian novel or a Shakespeare play bogging you down? Is even the SparkNotes summary too long to skim in the two seconds you have with your phone before your English teacher walks in (punctually one minute late, as usual), prepared to give a pop quiz for a book you didn’t have time to read because you were writing a lab report/doing your math homework/rehearsing for a play/rereadingย The Hunger Games?

Whatever the reason, or reasons, I’ve got your backโ€”not only did I once read these books (er, or most of them anyway) too quickly and often over lunch, during high school, but I have now taken the time to translate them, painstakingly, into easily digestible emoji narratives. Get ready to ace that pop quiz:
