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 about 60% of the book before I put it down. I realized that the characters felt flat to me and the environment was not written in a way to make it a character unto itself. I just couldn't remain interested and found that I did not care about any of the characters or the story line. I keep reading and thinking that it would get better, but it did not. Just not for me.
