A book summary briefly describes the contents of the book. Two paragraphs should be sufficient to summarize a book. A critical review describes what you thought about the book. Did you like it? Why or why not? Would you recommend it to someone else? Why? A good and concise critical review should not have more than 3 paragraphs. The total recommended length is 5 paragraphs, but points will not be taken if your paper exceeds or is below the recommendation.
