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.
This book took me forever to read and it isn't even all that long. It is one of the slowest books I've ever read. The authors are seriously beating a dead horse with those little random facts we think we know about the actual Lizzie Borden case (like the stuff about Lizzie's fishing gear). This book turns from historical fiction to historical nonsense. And I know this is picky of me, but there are several typos towards the end of the book. They are incredibly obvious and annoying. This book is, plain and simple, a work of great speculation and the authors seem to have done very little research into the case. Seriously, don't waste your time on this book.
