    Well he did say he needed help.

    Didn't you do a paper once on Ender's Game? How much would it take to part with it?

    First of all, have you read it?

    Second of all, is this a book report or a book review? What is the overall objective of the paper?

    I don't think we'd be helping him by helping him. He can find plenty of resources from the library or online.

    Its a Research paper. It has a thesis and what not. I have my thesis statment and what not set.


    And I've sort of kinda read it...if you know what I mean... :cwink:

    But really, i read it and have with me now, I've used sparknotes to save sometime finding things seeing as I've waited so long to start.

    I'm sorry. I cannot help you. Take DBella's advise. She is much smarter than either of us. :up:

    Seriously

    One more piece of advise: You have started which is good. Stop for the day and just read it.

    See if you can get through it by Sunday. Then write out an outline to help structure your paper.

    If you just read it and get into the story the rest will fall in place. Trust me.

    Just read it. If you have, then read it again using the skimming technique.


    Good luck!

    Note:The sparknotes will make more sense afterwards too, but don't heavily rely on them.

    That's the spirit. It's better to learn from your own mistakes. I am sure you'll do alright if you've read and understood what you read.

    ^Is that your thesis?

    Your thesis sounds fine to me. Good luck!

    When I was in 12th grade, I did a literary criticism on Green Eggs and Ham. Somehow I got 7 pages on it.

    Yes... but I figured he's already read the book. If he has, there's no harm in going over it again. It can only help.

    I would be interested in reading it as I'm perplexed on how someone could come up with 7 pages.

    Post it!
