Disarming reviews: "Sorry!"

Next in the series of kids reading bad reviews, comes one from The Crypt Thief. This one is particularly interesting because... well, you'll see:

That's right. The reviewer gave one star because he hadn't bought or read the book!

  1. This is my favorite kind of bad review. I know Amazon has a "no censoring reviews" policy, but you'd think they'd make an exception when the reviewer is obviously ill equipped to make a judgment on the item they've reviewing. After all, Amazon's purchases are driven by good reviews, so it would stand to reason that deleting illegitimate bad ones would be a good business decision. But then again, I don't run a multi-billion dollar company. So my opinion is probably irrelevant.
