1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Trust the Reviews!!, November 25, 2011
By 
This review is from: Culo by Mazzucco (Hardcover)
I will admit I haven't bought this book. I considered it, but looking at all these reviews, and how they magically appeared the day the book was released, I can say I know an ad campaign when I see one. Go read some real reviews for other things on Amazon and notice how often the reviewers use their real names, have made Amazon Verified Purchases of what they're reviewing, and have reviewed other things on Amazon. No look at these reviews, which all sound like they were written by the same person - except for the negative one. Notice there are no real names used. There are no Amazon Verified Purchases, and none of the people giving rave reviews has ever reviewed anything before on Amazon, but they rushed there to write a glowing review? The book could be good, or it could be bad, but these reviews represent nothing more than a hard working PR team stuffing the ballot box.

I bought the book and reviewed it the same day I bought it....can't speak for anyone else but you can't write a review unless you've bought a book on Amazon so get over yourself and buy the thing and enjoy a few hours of real fun artful adventure....

Sorry Jeth, but I write reviews on Amazon all the time of things I bought at other places. Unlike Audible (owned by Amazon), you can review anything you want here. That's the point of the Amazon Verified Purchase concept, which some of my reviews to bear.

Trust me from one that bought the book and then returned it a couple of days later...your not missing a dang thing. This will collect dust on your shelf or coffee table. The only inviting thing is the cover. Waste.

Wait... you said you haven't bought this book but have you read it? How can we trust YOUR review if you have not done so?
