I recently read Heinlein's "Farnham's Freehold", and I've been
trying to find a way to describe it. Once you're dedicated to
oversimplifying something into six words, it becomes easy.

Farnham's Freehold: Hugh clever enough to survive anything.

This could be fun.

Dune: Paul uses every advantage to win.

Slaughterhouse Five: Billy accepts unchangeable past and future.

Lolita: Humbert thinks it's wrong, but irresistable.

Fight Club: Thinks he's too good for her.

The Diamond Age: Nell finds her mother.

The Lord of the Rings: Even a ring can make mistakes.
