Shortened Books: Twittering the Classics

I read about those Tweets reducing great books into 140 characters. I started doing this on my Facebook status, then thought it would be fun here. What are yours?

Jonathan Livingston Seagull: This bird has flown... fast. Fear of flying no more.

Moby Dick (Oxford World's Classics): Type A captain gets wrapped up in his work, losing himself as he finds himself.

Oliver Twist (Tor Classics): Hungry beggar teams with rip-off artist, gets lucky a lot, finds out he's rich thanks to philandering dad.
