The guide was an old guy who has probably been doing the job for a loooooooong time. Most people hardly listen; I wouldn't care very much either, I think^^ It wouldn't surprise me if he had memorized every single word, and told the story in the exact same way every time... That's how it sounded^^
Seriously, bookreports make me dislike books that I wouldn't have minded otherwise... That can't be what they're supposed to do... Go you! I would love to just refuse to make them. If it were for Dutch, I might get away with it too, but since it's for English... Definitely not good^^ Don't want to anger her! She's very nice, but also quite strict and sometimes old-fashioned, I suppose. Even though she likes me (hehe, if you're good in English or very bad but obviously trying very hard, then she'll like you^^), I wouldn't get away with not having them finished.
