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 analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I loved Humans of New York and Humans of New York/Stories. HUMANS, however, is filed with misery, poverty, abuse, hopelessness and ugliness. Terribly depressing book. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I have been following these stories for so long and I even preordered this book. I’ve been counting down the days and it arrived slightly damaged and dirty? I am extremely disappointed and see that many others have this issue, I hope it can be fixed.
I preordered this book back in July and was so excited to receive it but before I even got a chance to read it I was already disappointed! The front was dirty with a greasy substance all over and has scratches I can’t get out! It looks like it’s been used and abused already and it just came out today. Surprised, I checked and other reviewers experienced the same thing.
This is for the seller and delivery service not the book. I pre-ordered this, thinking it would arrive on the day it launched. It arrived a few days later and with these oily hands marks on the cover. The book itself is great however.
In the past I have always bought these books as gifts for family and friends. I did so this time as well. But I have decided to not give them away because the stories in this issue are so depressing. Why add to the angst we are all feeling right now?
PACKAGING AND PRODUCT WERE BOTH BADLY DAMAGED. BOOK WAS LOOSE INSIDE BOX WITH NO WRAPPING OR PADDING AND BOX WAS COMPLETELY BATTERED UP. THIS REVIEW IS NOT TOWARDS THE BOOK BUT THE PACKAGING. THIS IS THE SECOND REVIEW IVE TRIED TO WRITE.
The book is fantastic but the sleeve is all smeared. Even though I saw the other reviews, I was somehow hoping that my order would arrive without any issues. No such luck. I ordered it from Amazon as a gift for someone. Now I will keep this copy and go to Barnes & Noble to buy one with a cleaner sleeve for the gift.
