5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant baldacci, November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Forgotten: A John Puller Novel 2 (Kindle Edition)
For me David Baldacci is a problem. When one of his books arrive I get nothing else done until I have finished reading it - I just can't stop. This book is just as good as all the others. Baldacci tells a good story in a style that is easy to read and his plot is simple to follow. When is the next one coming?

I really like Balacci's works. I really like ebooks in general, having reading material with me on my phone without the hassle of carrying a book. But the price of this is really ridiculous!!!! Five bucks MORE than the softcover edition? EYE pay more for YOU to avoid printing and handling costs? COME ON!

As a reviewer you are easy to please. Nearly all of your other reviews of novels are five star. I envy you! If a quarter of the books I read are five star in my opinion I would be thrilled!

Book worm, I absolutely agree with you. The only book reviews this reviewer and several others who have assigned five stars have written are, both five stars, the two books by this author. I checked.

This is common practice throughout Amazon. Sometimes the five star reviews come from people whose ONLY book is the one by the author. Conversely there are book reviewers who have written multiple reviews, up to 26,000 of them, I kid you not - and who have given all of them five stars with a couple of fours thrown in. These are most likely publicists or paid reviews.

Then there those whose other reviews are hidden, so the number and ratings of their reviews cannot be seen. This is misleading for the customer who wants an honest review of the book before buying. This sort of thing drives up the rating for really awful self-published books, and even some of the best selling novelists now; some customers, including me, are getting really annoyed.

It's done to drive up the star ratings in order to drive up sales, but it also alienates loyal followers, savvy enough to research the reviews. Authors risk their reputations by doing this, in that if the book was any good, padding with purchased ratings would not be necessary.
