The Ultimate Short Synopsis

Here...is a text-message version of "Paradise Lost" disseminated by some scholars in England: "Devl kikd outa hevn coz jelus of jesus&strts war. pd'off wiv god so corupts man (md by god) wiv apel. devl stays serpnt 4hole life&man ruind. Woe un2mnkind."

Talk about concise! And I thought Desires were considered short books. I don't know if I could ever crunch a book into a text-synopsis of that size. Anybody else game to try with a book of your choice?
