66 Plots Updated examines how classic literature would be changed if authors were to update their plots with the use of modern technology (much as the recent trend of books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies have done with the use of monsters). Highlighting a broad range of dramatic works from the more modern West Side Story to Anna Karenina and the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, the plots presented within give an amusing take on what would happen if things we take for granted today (say, the text message) were incorporated into those stories.

While 66 Plots Updated is very funny, there are many intriguing questions behind the "updates" presented and ones that the reader should consider while reading this work. As one example, a point that comes up frequently in these plots is how much communication has changed and how specifically that has affected writers' ability to plot. After all, how dramatic is waiting minutes for an email as opposed to waiting weeks or months for a letter from a lover gone to war? Has modern life spoiled us for grand drama? Or has it simply changed the ways in which that drama occurs?

These are just a couple of the questions that I considered as I read the 66 Plots books. All around, I found the books just as inspiring as I did clever. A good read with many ideas to consider, particularly if you're a writer yourself.
