How to Write a Book Report?

Doing a book report shows how well the reader understood the topic and how he had reflected on it. The reader's opinion can be as short as 50-100 words, or as long as 1500 words, depending on the purpose of the report.

The following are the vital parts of a book report:
  • Characters - This refers to who the story is about. Explore the physical and personality traits of the characters. The main character is called the protagonist. Who are the other characters?  What are their names?
  • Setting - This discusses the time and place of the story.
  • Story - This will discuss the events that happened in the beginning, the middle and the end of the book. What happened to the characters?  What is the main event t? How does the story end?
  • Thoughts - This refers to the reader’s overall opinion of the book and the most important thing he wants other people to know about the story. Write a sentence or two to sum up your report.
Make it sure that your writing is clear and easy-to-read. You should also include examples from the book to support your opinions. When you're finished with the report, proofread it. Proofreading is the key to writing good book reports. Read it for grammatical errors and find other types of errors.
