Excellent tool! Sparknotes, Cliffnotes, Shmoop are never replacements for actually reading. However, they are a very important tool for students who are trying to grasp at difficult concepts, abstract ideas or even hidden meanings. I am always irked by those who look down their noses at students who are just trying to understand. After all, we can't take our English teacher home with us !Was this review helpful?
