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.
Well I don't hate the book, but I hate this Kindle edition of it.
I bought this edition having just finished the first in the series. After a few pages, I began to wonder whether there was something seriously wrong with the Kindle app on my ipad, because every time the letters 'fi' appeared in a word, they were missing and you would be surprised how many words DO have those letters in them! Given that the price of the Kindle edition of these books is just about the same as for the paper edition, I would not expect this sort of error. Had I bought a paper edition I could take it back for a full refund, but I cannot see any way to do that with the Kindle edition. This is going to make me think twice before buying Kindle editions in future.
