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 book was quite a read for me. It started off a little slow and you have to wait until about a quarter of the way in the book to actually get to Cleopatra. It was very nice to get a glimpse into the lives of the people around her (even though this is just a novel). Her lover Mark Antony is not really brought up much until the end. It a great read though!
