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.
Smoke and Mirrors is an absolutely excellent short story compilation book. Gaiman is a master storyteller, this particular compilation containing stories ranging anywhere from a page to over 20 pages. My only issue is that as a Neil Gaiman fan, I own most of his short story compilations and unfortunately, I had previously read many of the stories in 'Smoke and Mirrors' in his other compilations. Putting that aside however, this was a 5 star book; completely excellent.
