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.
have been enjoying reading The Raj Quartet. If you like interesting stories in the classical style, and don't mind lengthy reads , it provides an unusual perspective (part fiction, part real events)of the British in the 30s and 40s. This review is for the third and fourth volume in the series - each volume references the book before it and spends a fair amount of time bringing the reader up to speed on previous events (as the books were originally published separately) , but this is done from the perspective of different characters each time and is not at all repetitive. Before reading, enjoy The Raj Quarter: Jewel in the Crown and Day of the Scorpion as well.
