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.
I have enjoyed Susan Dunlap's books in the past, and I was pleased to find that she was writing again. Unlike other reviewers, I liked "A Single Eye". I was drawn into the story right away, and I believe that part of Darcy's reasons for going to the retreat are unresolved feelings of guilt that she wasn't able to enter the woods to help her friend. I liked the characters, I liked the settings, and I believe that some of the other reviewers may be unrealistically critical about a new character. A new character almost never springs from its creators mind fully fledged: there are almost always rough edges. I could overlook some of the flaws, and could see the promise of this character. I liked Darcy, and I look forward to spending alot more time with her through Ms. Dunlap's books.
