(Response from a one-star reviewer) "My review has been flagged as inappropriate by lots of apologists over the past couple days and removed twice, but it has twice been reinstated by Amazon who have assured me that it is within their guidelines. "
Amazon least of all will want to remove your review. Why would they? After their fight with Macmillan last year over ebook pricing, I'm sure they are loving every one of these one-star Kindle reviews that are being published. After all, if all books are released in digital format it is a big WIN for them (and don't believe for a second they truly care about the reader - it's all about the money).
As a fellow ebook reader (Kindle DX) I am ashamed by the one-star reviews. It is clear Brandon has worked very hard to produce a book with the highest quality and in a short amount of time. IMO there is no other author who could of pulled off such a task. These reviews not only hurt him (his assistant- i.e. brother - published a newsletter where he asked reviewers to stop posting one-star reviews about the Kindle edition), but it stops casual readers who have never heard anything about the series from picking it up. A lot of readers view the top 100 Amazon books and the rating for each book is listed next to it. There is a major difference between 4 stars and 4 1/2 when periodically scanning the list for a good read. Although I would never expect someone to start at book 13, I enjoy that other people might have the opportunity to read such a great series. Not only that, but it brings attention to the neglected fantasy & sci-fi crowd.
I believe we, the readers, should be responsible and show our appreciation to a series that had lost its initial author and was, somehow, completed (or will be completed) with a trilogy of books that will likely match the first three books. We are lucky these books are coming out. Show more appreciation!
