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 analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A great collection of different life stories and circumstance within the rich and heady culture of Addis. A good introduction for those new to Ethiopian literature. My first discovery of an Akashic Noir publication and having read about Akashic's values and ethos (at the end of this book) I'm keen to read more from the Noir series.
Some of the short stories are well structured with reasonably good plots. The others will force you to flip thru because they either have weak themes or the writers make poor attempt at being funny by tossing around too many Amharic words in the mix.
