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.
After 100 pages I gave up. This was a selection for our community book club. It is the most disjointed story I have ever read. Having roots in West Virginia I found the small town / local folk descriptions somewhat interesting. That's the only tepid positive comment I can make. I bought this as a used book from Amazon. Obviously not a popular book as I received a brand new library discard that had never been checked out.
