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 like the dabbling in Greek myths. That sort of thing is always fun. This isn't normally my sub-genre, so I wavered on giving it four or five stars. But my policy is that I try to review on the basis of the book's merit rather than my tastes. The style and plot are good. And if you enjoy science fiction with a humorous atmosphere and a reality-tv atmosphere this is a fun and accessible read. My husband compared it to A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for reasons of style and tone. It's much more his genre, so it gets five stars partly because he doesn't do reviews himself, so this is sort of a joint review of two readers.
