A source of good information. When wondering what a book is about, you can't always trust the description or blurb from a retail site. Many times I have read a blurb and thought I'd be interested in a book, but it turned out it wasn't what I expected after I started reading it. On other occasions the description was just too vague to decide the probability of enjoying the story. With this InstaRead Summary, the book was broken down into sets of chapters summarizing the events, and key points were highlighted. I also liked that when there is a multitude of characters, this guide helps you to learn and remember who they are. I am sure this will be beneficial for many readers.
The one downside for me is that once you read it, you know most details and how the story plays out before reading the actual book. I think if I were to use another Instaread summary, I would prefer to use it along side the actual book. It performs much like a study guide. As I am reading, if I have trouble remembering certain characters, or events, I could consult the summary. This would also work well if you have to put a book down for a while, and pick it back up later.
I believe this is a useful tool and the summary made me interested in reading the actual book. So, I think it has performed the way the author wanted it to.
