The Worst Sort of Book to Review

Reviewing a great book is always a pleasure. Reviewing a very bad one can be fun as well, as you get to pan it. The most interesting reviews are probably of a mixed books: they contain some great material one can praise, and some bad parts one can critique.

But the worst type of book to review? Competent but dull. Reviewing books like that is always a slog.
