Book Review: Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don’t Float

What do you get when you cross the latest social networking technology with authors and characters of classic literature? Well in Schmelling’s case, you get laugh-out-loud hilarity as figures like Jane Austen, Ernest Hemingway and Edgar Allen Poe bitch, coerce and attempt to outwit one another while characters like Scrooge repeatedly reject friend requests. Adroit humor pulls these figures kicking and screaming (for mercy) into the twenty-first century with updated versions of time honored storylines as witnessed when Romeo fails to read up on the latest from Friar Lawrence. Cerebral comedy doesn’t come much better then this but be forewarned, reading this might cause you to start dusting off and revisiting some of those time honored classics.
