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 book is really for young adults (or teenagers as we used to say). I was curious about the formula, as it is part of a series. Obviously written from an american point of view but quite accessible for other English readers. The rapid advances in smart phone technology means some of the features of the book may seem quite old fashioned to a young reader.
