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 analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
this is an interesting book about a period in history i knew little about. each chapter has a short intro, and then the letter of a ship captain or explorer etc, of that time. it can get a little dry, but is interesting
I chose this rating because I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked that it is a compilation of original documents written by people active in the region in one way or another and I recommend it to people who are interested in history in general, the history of Portugal and/or Africa, or people interested religious history, specifically Catholicism, but there are also some interesting notes about Judaism.
The book was quite new and in very good conditions. It was delivered on time. The only thing that happened is that it arrived from New Zealand instead from U.S. and I had to pay an additional sum of 6.5 Euros.
