In Marx: A Very Short Introduction, Peter Singer identifies the central vision that unifies Marx's thought, enabling us to grasp Marx's views as a whole. He sees him as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. In plain English, he explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of Capital, and Marx's ideas of communism, and concludes with an assessment of Marx's legacy.

The writer's own opinions liven the retelling and actually add to the excitement of Marx's philosophy.
The information is there, but this guy obviously has a bone to pick with Marx. Maybe not the best choice for a simple introduction.
