Dictionary Definition : Kelsey-- Frequently called "Kels," this female specimen of Homo Sapiens belongs to the Literary Cabinet universe. Although she is a young member, she has shown her maturity to be above other species, sometimes. "Kelsey" can behave quite crazy in her own right. One of her most noticeable traits is paranoia and knowledge of trolls.

I need to analyze a nonfiction novel in my summary. It wasn't boring, but it wasn't interesting either. It was obviously well-researched, and I didn't find flaw with it, but there was no brilliance to it to comment on-- but that's it. There's really nothing else for me to state my opinion on.
How do you deal with this sort of situation?

Dictionary Definition : Laura: Also known as "Solveig", her internet pseudonym, this female specimen of Homo Sapiens founded the Literary Cabinet world. One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

If you cannot find anything with the novel itself to form an opinion, why not ask for the purpose of the novel? Obviously, the writer wants to do something other than tell a story, why else would he pick something that actually happened?

Dictionary Definition : Dictionary Definition: Paul-One of the few male LC creatures known to exist, this specimen is one of the eldest in the LC universe. This specimen is known to work long hours but still makes time to commingle with fellow LC denizens. This being has a peculiar sense of humor and has been observed to shun smilies, although this aversion has been lessening as of late.

Maybe something like "The book, though well-researched and informative, was not enlightening. It did not inspire me to read further about the subject". Then touch on some of the reasons why you feel this way. Sorry I can't give you more to go on than that.
