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 !
