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.
Loved this book. It gives a wonderful picture of colonial Australian life in the 19th century, particularly of Melbourne life at the turn of the century. Beautiful character portrayals, threaded with a tragic love story. I loved the vignettes of interesting Australian history featured throughout the book, including a very strong narrative on early indigenous culture. The book provides a fascinating portrayal of early Australian history.
