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.
I searched for this book after I purchased a painting at an auction with the author's name in it. I had never heard of S.E. Waller so I wanted to do a little research. I found that he had written a book about his journey through Iceland and, because I read that he had a love of horses, I thought I would enjoy reading his book. This book contains some of his prints as well and they are very good. Waller does a great job of describing the scenery and events that occur during his six weeks in Iceland. While I sometimes cringed at the way the animals were treated, I can't deny that Waller is a good writer and that I often laughed out loud at some of his tongue in cheek anecdotes and tellings. It doesn't take long to read, only 177 pages in the original version. I feel it is worth the time and it gives an honest view of the life and times of the people and environment of Iceland in 1872.
