  4. honestly this was a terrible description of the book, leaves out key- info… and so many plot points… tf

  5. Alright, not only did you leave out so many details, but the few you actually got right are not even entirely correct. Nice going.

  6. This left out so many significant parts on the book, extremely useless and very unimpressed with Shmoop.

  7. its such a shame that you made a good book, and an inspirational story for other kids nothing more than a useless shitty and not even funny, nonsense video.

  8. its not supposed to be funny its supposed to tell the story for younger people to understand it.
