Stumped me for a bit, anyone else start searching for "I am here" opening lines?

What a clever way to start this book

On January 2, 2022 at 9:23PM EST EMC2 responded to jmooser:

It's not the exact first words of the book, but M does start this first Theorem by saying "I am here" and then says "With these words, the story of The Master Theorem officially begins." So I think that's why it's considered the opening line of The Master Theorem.

On January 2, 2022 at 9:15PM EST jmooser responded to Phoebe:

This confuses me too. All of the clues involve the opening line of a book. But "I am here" is not the opening line of "The Master Theorem," as far as I can see.

I don’t see where it says “I am here” in the book! M! I don’t see it as the first words! Where is it?

The R is from a different book by the same author called the restaurant at the end of the universe

How was I supposed to get the letter R from the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy ?

I just realized why I couldn’t get it. I mixed up the I and the l in the Iliad I thought it looked and sounded wrong

I don’t think the first clue should count. I’d already figured that out.

It worked!

On May 21, 2021 at 7:42PM EST RascalsMama responded to EMC2:

I was putting in the "I am here" first...I'll try omitting that. Thanks.

On May 19, 2021 at 5:26PM EST EMC2 responded to RascalsMama:

What were you typing in that didn’t work? Curious since it seems like lots of people had similar trouble. It works for me when I type in “The Master Theorem”. Note that anything else like “I am here” isn’t the final answer and won’t work.

I had the correct answer, but it keeps telling me I'm wrong! I FINALLY checked the answer in the book, & I AM CORRECT!!

cover design helped me on this one for sure

I had the correct answer 30 minutes ago...what is the issue with the on-line solution?? I finally used all 3 hints and checked the book! I can stop guessing now (as my earlier answer was correct!).

I have to say I groaned a bit as soon as I figured this one out. The answer was right there all along! For those having issues with the website submission, I typed it all lowercase and it worked fine, like so: the master theorem

A pretty good first impression :)

On October 27, 2020 at 8:31PM EST MasterRogue responded to Corgi:

I was having a similar issue and did resolve it. If you think the answer is just the first letters spelling out “I __ ____”, that’s not the final answer. A closer reading of the solution page shows The answer is the title of which that line is the first phrase, hence the typed solution is The Master Theorem

On October 11, 2020 at 4:18PM EST Corgi responded to Liz:

I've checked the solution in the book and it is correct, but when I type it into the website it won't work.

On October 11, 2020 at 4:05PM EST Liz responded to Corgi:

Maybe you're missing a step?

I have the right answer but can't seem to get the website to accept it. Am I missing something?
