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.
I just couldn’t connect with this book. I kept waiting for a grand “a-ha!!” moment, a stunning connection among the many different stories involved, but that moment never came. I found the one line that repeated throughout each story to be annoying. I didn’t feel much of a connection to any of the character, perhaps because there were so many and not enough time spend with any of them. I was hoping this could be a class read, but I wouldn’t recommend for that purpose. It does provide a nice moral lesson of never knowing what other people may be going through, and community is all connected somehow, but it felt like a forced concept.
