Why Amazon thinks you’re Stupid (Opinion Piece).
Although I’m an author and am fortunate enough to have about ten very good reviews on Amazon for my book, Rough Enough, I certainly believe that cutting off a review just because it is from someone’s relative if a bit simple minded. The gamesmanship of the persons who review others to make them feel happy about a book that may be mediocre is a mystery to me. I have reviewed a number of books on Amazon, GoodReads and other places because I like the book. Even in the case where I find a flaw, such as in James Rollins’ book Amazonia, I still rate it as I feel it is deserving and in tha case of that book, it was a jolly good read! I still have some weird dreams about his descriptions of the Yanomamo Indian (read Jivaro Indian for you ancients) methodology of shrinking human heads. I remember a friend who’s family actually had a real one back in the 50’s (I wonder what happened to that!).
So, yes, I agree with Ionia on her blog. Let them print what they write and let the reader read carefully and you will discern the truth for yourself.

It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate

for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my
Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will
talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
Ok, I’m looking for the donate widget! Again one of these things I’ve got to get perked up on my accounts as I learn the hard way – trial and error. I can’t even figure out what my RSS feed is so that I can use it on my Amazon web site. Oh! The wonders of old age! Thanks for your nice comment.
