Book Report - How To Write A Simple Book Report
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One of the frequent assignments that are given to students these days is – writing a book report. At first it might look daunting. But, by breaking the entire report into smaller pieces it is easier to write a book report.

A book report is made up of different sections. Better still, if a template is available it will make writing much easier. An introduction, information about the subject, the writer’s views and conclusion are what will be required to complete the report.

Following are some points to help you in your task.

Step - 1

To write a report you will first need to read the book. Read the book carefully paying attention to information that you might think are important. Take down notes or points as you read along. This would be very helpful when you write your final report.

If the book your reading has elements related to political, religious, economic or social connections, try to analyze it. Gaining a deeper understanding of all these aspects will help you to write an effective report.

Step - 2

When you start writing, “Introduction” is the first part. Introduce your title here. You are not writing a mystery novel to keep the title hiding till the end. Also along with that, try to give additional information like if the author has won any awards, is the book among best sellers. The more information you add, the better for your report.

Step - 3

The body of the report should provide an outline of the subject you are reporting on. The outline need not be descriptive, but should be informative enough to convey the required message.

In your main body, give your thoughts, view point and ideas of what you think of the book. In your writing, give examples as this would help to relate your idea with the plot of the book. Providing a link makes it easy to connect.

Readers would be interested in knowing your view point. Pen down your thoughts in simple language and don’t try to overdo it. You don’t want your readers to fall sleep midway through your report.

Step - 4

With the introduction and the main thesis already in place, your final act would be to provide a logical and reasonable conclusion.

Keep your conclusion short, crisp and logical. It’s should provide the synopsis of the whole writing along with your opinion of the book you reviewed.

This could be your first report, with practice you will be a master yourself.
