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.
The author used a period of time in history which had tragic & lifechanging circumstances to write a book which had plenty of gore, a beginning, a middle & then just ended. It does make me want to read a historical book however of that period in time.
Actually I meant to buy this in paperback version for my mom but clicked wrong and got kindle version. Didn’t realize it until deadline to ‘return’ passed. Not really my kind of book so doubt I’ll read it.
The story around the base ie "comfort women" was implausible and not worthy of the the writer. She traded upon the historic abuse and her input falls completely flat. She is not a story teller but trades on the discomfort and hardships of peoples who deserved better. She (the author) needs to get a new day job!
