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.
Son kept reading them so I kept getting them for him till they ran out of title in the series! I like the way in which they have to keep going back and forth to follow different story lines- I think it is good for reading comprehension.

One of my sons is intensely interested in the air war over Europe in WWII and has read a lot. This book presents three cliches of the war -- The dangerous Pacific air war, the nightly bombing raids over Germany, or the Tuskegee Airmen. All of the story lines are good, but none are very specific and they mostly just represent the most vague and widely understood aspects of WWII pilots. So this book is better suited for kids with just a vague interest, not kids with a specialized area of intense concentration.
