Re: TOS: That Which Divides by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Well, it's 7 "average" and 6 "above average" at the moment, and no votes for any other rating. Which somehow comes out to well below the average of review threads in total on your collected chart, which means the reviews overall must skew heavily to the positive (no doubt in part because more positive ratings have higher numerical values, so a high vote counts more than a lower one). That seems like a flaw in the methodology, if a book that gets a majority average-or-better rating can come out so near the bottom of the list. Or maybe it's just that subjective definitions of an "average" book differ from mathematical ones.
