You are missing the end to close the constructor.

Hi Daniel,

You are missing end tag under initialize method :)

  def initialize(title) 
    @title = title 
  end <----------------missing

  def title 
      @title 
  end

Hope that helps.

Daniel,

You are missing an "end" from the beginning of your code:

def initialize(title) @title = title def title @title end

You need to close out the initialize action. Hope this helps =)
