Got this response from the guy who posted the original question:
Thanks a lot man, I really appreciate it. I normally do my book reports on my own, but I have other work to worry about, mainly in the class I'm failing (I didn't turn in half of the assignments, so I'm doing them now). Thanks to you, I can get this out of the way and work on said assignments.
Can't tell if serious.

But in case he's serious - DO I TELL HIM THAT I MADE ALL THAT UP?

Or do I keep silent, because anyone who would turn in someone else's work instead of reading the damn book themselves deserves what they get?

(Someone might make this choice for me by giving away the game, but...)

How could he not even check Wikipedia for an overview?

I wonder if he even took the time to read through your summary. (The ability to talk to fruit flies?) Speaking as an instructor who has had to deal with plagiarists before, I vote for letting him have enough rope.

My opinion: he dug his own damn hole -- if he couldn't be bothered to turn in half the assignments in another class, it's not like he's a hard working student who got sidelined by a car accident and is facing an unsympathetic prof or something.

ETA: Which sounds like I'm in favor of plagiarism in extreme circumstances, which I'm not. Ah well.

If the student doesn't crib from you, they'll crib from someone else. At least this way gives the prof a laugh.
