Book reports commonly contain basic information about the book and focus on describing the major plot, characters and main idea of the work. In the introduction, include the title and author name as well as the number of pages and publishing information, such as the publisher's name, location and year of publication.
Provide summaries and evaluations of each prominent character from the book in the body of the book report. Include a thorough summary of the plot, describing major events and explaining what happens throughout the story. After summarizing, evaluate and analyze the plot, including key themes, symbolism, and writing techniques, explaining how they are significant to the story.
For the conclusion, create a concise summary of how the key elements played a part in the overall story. You can also include the reader's impression and recommendation in the conclusion, if applicable.
