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.
The blue color is actually a very nice dark, dusty navy. Pages turn smoothly and the paper weight is great for writing. The book is a similar weight in the hand to the moleskine and lechtturm1917, but because of the A5 design, there is more space on each page - basically 1 in wider and 1 inch longer than other notebooks. Because there is no median fold to work around, you get to use every bit of space on the page (even when I use lay flat notebooks, some space is lost along the seam). Each page is easily removed and repositioned. I am not remotely associated with this company; I just really, really like notebooks. :)
