> BAM Classics is out. Have fun.

Okay, my thoughts on BAM Classics: I like it. I don't think it's up to the same level as BAM SF/F or BAM Bedtime, but I didn't think that Bedtime was all that great until it had been up for awhile. I expect that once a few more are added, it will be at the same level as the other two. Actually, from looking at the Classics condensations so far, it wouldn't suprise me if it became better than the other two. Overall, well done, and I look forward to future updates.

One thing I particularly like about Classics is that I haven't read all of the books up there, but I know enough about them so that the condensations still make sense. I don't get some of the SF/F stuff simply because I haven't read that particular book.

Oh, BTW, I really liked the Jane Eyre condensation. It captured that book perfectly.

Lesse, I really want The Iliad (but I think I've said that before).
