"This book is flat."

Flatness is a pretty unremarkable quality about books. Could a more relevant subject be used for this sentence? E.g. a roof? "Le toit est plat." Much more likely to want to say that.

"Plat" also means dull, which would actually make sense in this sentence, but should you dare write it... well, you know what happens, if you care about your hearts...
