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.
These stories were utterly riveting.... in the "I can't believe someone could make a story this boring" kind of way. You have to keep listening because you're waiting for a moment when the narrator finally feels some inkling of emotion and it's betrayed in his voice. But, no. Like a ninja, his control of his every faculty is stunning. Never does the slightest inflection of tone or nuance find its way into his vocal delivery. You can rest assured, your children may listen to this without any fear of their being coaxed to the dark and slippery slope of feelings.
