To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
This was the first time I listened to a piece of fiction and I really enjoyed it. The voice acting was good and eventually the listener finds out that the author made it a point to read out the entire book and all the dialogue a couple of times (when the author was interviewed at the end of the audiobook). This helps to make the audiobook sound a lot more "natural". As a story itself, it worked out reasonably well, with a couple of plotholes -- clearly this genre does not anticipate pervasive video surveillance that we see in many countries these days! I can see how this might translate into an excellent movie. I understand the rights have been optioned and I hope they do that well!
