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.
At the start of this book, I was ready to sit down and begin a book that would probably be about the dramatic adventure of two completely different beings trying to make it through other-worldly affairs while slowly falling in love. Consider me a bit naive. Martha Brockenbrough allows her natural humor to shine through into even the deeper parts of this story. With the existance of multiple points of view, the reader gets to experience exactly what they need to experience without too much action or too much thought, something I would consider a nice balance. I will admit that I was initially frustrated with Jerome, one of the main characters, for having such a simple way of stating things, but I began to see that as part of him throughout the progression of the tale. By the end, everything sort of came together in a big ball of mush. I felt sympathy for a number of characters, including the ones I didn't expect to. Martha overall introduces us to a new frame of thought where life tends to feel a bit more fragile, and death can be a whole new beginning.
