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.
This complaint is strictly about the book itself - NOT the content. We love Dr Seuss and are sure this book would have been fantastic, as all of his are. But we were very sad to realize that the book had been printed incorrectly, such that half way through it, the story was cut off and the book sort of started over in the middle. Like with a title page, table of contents and everything, right there in the middle of the book. Since this was a purchase that I (uncharacteristically, for me) made early and as a Christmas present for our kids, it was too late to return it by the time we realized it was messed up. Anyway, we liked the first half of the book, though not so much that we wanted to re-read it when it was repeated in the same copy. And we're very curious to read the second half of the Bippolo Seed. I think this time though, we'll buy it from somewhere that we can look between the pages and make sure they're all there ahead of time. For the record, I'm a huge Amazon fan. This was just one bad buy. Bummer.
