When it comes to commentary of social, economic, or political issues I prefer brevity. Unfortunately the majority of free rights books are tomes made to engage and entertain people of a time in history where reading a long book was a main form of entertainment(as well as said commentary).

I remember making a presentation in high school in about Anna Karenina, basically berating the overall premise that it takes 1000+ pages to get across a message in this day an age and that reading assignments like this are completely a waste of time(I am a math and science kind of guy). I finished the presentation with the conclusion that the only redeeming part of the book was that she kills herself by train. All of the lit nerds raged etc, but I am a fairly logical debater and crushed them during questioning. I got an A+.
