Reached end of file while parsing?

I've done what Craig is saying step by step, and somewhere along the road I've made a mistake. I've check the () and they are all in the right possitions, but this message keeps appearing:

TreeStory.java:15: error: reached end of file while parsing
console.printf("%s is very %s", name, adjective);
^
1 error

The code i'm writing is:

import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
    /*  Some terms:
        noun - Person, place or thing
        verb - An action
        adjective - A description used to modify or describe a noun
        Enter your amazing code here!
    */
    String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
    String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
    console.printf("%s is very %s", name, adjective);   

Please help! Thanks.

Hey Santiago!

I believe you need to add an extra "}" that matches with the end of your main function or class.

Your code works fine if you add the two missing curly braces:

public class TreeStory {

   public static void main(String[] args) {
       Console console = System.console();
       /*  Some terms:
           noun - Person, place or thing
           verb - An action
           adjective - A description used to modify or describe a noun
           Enter your amazing code here!
       */
       String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
       String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
       console.printf("%s is very %s", name, adjective); 
   }   //here - to end main method

}  //here - to end class

Thank you, I just add those two { { and it worked for me too.
