It's because the title of your favorite book isn't really "zak"! :laughing: ... just kidding! :speak_no_evil:

From a practical programming perspective, there's nothing actually wrong with your code, but this challenge wants you to practice initialization, where you declare and assign a variable in the same statement.

So combine your separate declaration and assignment into a single initialization and you'll pass.

Ah thanks for the help!
