To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I read MS Ireland's book for book club. For me, it was The Hunger Games meets The Civil War meets American current politics. Her Female lead characters were compelling, and her writing style was easy to follow. So many different messages though, made it confusing. , including white people are basically all terrible, people of color are all down trodden. The ending was basically left hanging, I suppose it will be resumed in her next book. Im Not a fan of zombie\ undead literature.
The beginning was slow, and I found it difficult to care much about the main character. I skipped to the end, and didn't feel I had missed much. Apparently there's some pro-Indian boarding school garbage in there??? Hard pass.
I was also thrown by the frankly ahistorical denunciation of corsets. They're actually pretty comfortable, and you can absolutely do work in them if worn correctly. (Nobody under threat of zombie attack is going to be tight-lacing.) This shows a lack of research on the author's part.
