Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
I could not put it down. Keeps you on the edge of your seat till the end. I am a librarian and wish it was in every library. Although it is a novel it teaches so much about life in the middle east. I hope the author writes more. I will read everything she publishes.
Purchased as a memoir- it was fiction and stated so in the book. Book was full of distracting typos, English was not this writer’s first language and it showed. Title inadequately reflected subject. I would not even give this one star is was so bad, except Amazon requires at least one.
When I bought it I thought it was a true story but it's not. The pictures are of actors and aren't very good. One picture has the boys fighting with the mom smiling. It's a fair story but needs a lot of editing. Disappointing.
