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.
Well done, Gilbert. This was an enjoyable read—tender without being maudlin. I liked the author's spare writing style, and after reading his disclaimer, I appreciated what he was trying to do with this story. Perhaps because the story hews closely to real life, it didn't have the sort of tension and climax I prefer in my reading. However, the author emphasizes that it is a work of fiction, so he might have considered massaging the intriguing bits about why so many Spitfire pilots died in succession to give it more of a "plot."
