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 is a stunning short story collection, and although it was written a few years ago it's incredibly relevant to today's politics, particularly in the states. There are some real thought provoking tales in here, and while it doesn't have the emotional impact of some of Saunders' work (such as Tenth of December), it's a masterful collection by a truly great writer, and will leave you thinking for days. I recommend reading a story at a time - ie reading one, then something else, then going back to the collection - to really appreciate the impact.
This ~135 page book is really more like a ~60 page short story. The pages are small, and quite a few pages are taken up by illustrations.
Content-wise, it's helpful to know that this began as a children's story. The writing is appropriately unsophisticated (a 6th grader should have no problem with it), the characters are simple, and the moral is obvious from a long way off. Nevertheless, the premise of a country so small only one person can fit in it at a time is a fascinating one.
Overall, it's a fun though not edifying little story.
