April Fools I pray!
Penguins calls this a ground-breaking re-packing of classics grammatically updated for the new generation. It doesn’t make sense to me.
“For the first time, iconic books such as Albert Camus’s The Stranger, Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure, and Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment will remove all the instances of full stops in the original text, and replace them with exclamation marks.”
How would the generosity with exclamation marks reach a wider audience?
“By using exclamation marks over and over again, the reader is reminded of the urgency of the story at the end of every sentence. It’s a great way of preventing potentially inattentive readers from tuning out, putting the book down and wandering off, without altering the original text too much.”
I just don’t see the reasoning.
