:D Hey I read that book for an English class last year! I thought it was interesting but really slow. Santiago's really cool- he seems like a wise old guy who knows a ton (ok, maybe a bit redundant there, but whatever) I liked all the biblical references. Did you know "Santiago" actually means "Saint John" or something like that? :mrgreen:

We're not going to do your homework for you, so if you have specific questions about the phrasing of a line or two, or you want to bounce your ideas off of us and get an opinion ON YOUR THOUGHTS, go right ahead, however please do not ask us to do your school work for you.

:( Oh calm down. It was just a question. Just say what you think about the book.
