    Sick of OT Nookbook reviews!

    CB2010

      I'm sick of people who post reviews on various NookBooks that have NOTHING to do with the content of the books. I went to read a review on one of James Patterson's ebooks and EVERY review was a complaint about the price, not about the book itself. If you think a book is too expensive FINE, don't buy it, but quit posting 1 star on a book you haven't read. Obviously B&N is not reading your complaints or they'd be taking down the reviews. If you want to talk about something besides how you like or didn't like a book, why not post the issue on the forums?

       

      Also, keep in mind that you're hurting your allegedly "favorite" author by making it look like the book is getting an unfavorable reviews when you're just having an OT snit!

          *smile*  I agree with you.

           

          Book reviews comments are for book reviews not general complaint boards.   I dislike it when I have to go off site for a book review when it should be available right here at B&N.

            I completely agree. This problem is not unique to B&N, though. Since I have an iPad, I also use the iBooks app and over there "reviewers" have completely trashed the Game of Thrones 4-book set simply because they don't like the price. When I was trying to decide whether to read the books, that type of feedback was absolutely useless.

             

            People, please. I know how to add! I can decide for myself whether I think a book is worth the price or not.

             

            I don't agree that the negative reviews have any impact on the publisher whatsoever. Prices are based on market factors, not a few one-star reviews.

             

            BTW, if you see a "review" that you think is inappropriate, please flag it.
