A book summary should be snappy and to the point. It contains the core elements of the book and a short framework of the storyline. Sum up the main points without losing the context; be perceptive in exposing the heart of the book. Get to the central theme promptly. Cut away nonessential detail and leave behind a crisp explanation of the story. Start with an introduction. Identify the title of the book and its author in the first sentence. Distinguish the purpose or the main ideas of the chosen book, presenting only the essential highlights. Use your own words and do not inject any personal opinions or comments. Build the body of the summary. Be concise. Organize paragraphs according to the flow of the story in a consistent sequence. Include important specifics and omit minor details. Encapsulate the intention of the author and his narrative using precise examples from the text to give credence and support to any statements you made in the introduction. This section should be between two and five paragraphs long, depending on the complexity of the book. Proofread the summary before submitting it.
