Review Hokum

As if we ever needed more data to reveal the sham of a review engine that is Harriet Klausner, here’s her review of The Last Guardian of Everness. Compare this with the book’s ingram and you will see a virtual sentence-by-sentence rewording. No insight into what worked, what didn’t. I found this shortly after posting my own review, while vainly seeking meaningless validation that my impressions were concurrent with the general populace.

  1. i’ve noticed that you use a lot of SAT words, what’s your lix score on that entry?

  2. I just checked. Still at grade 5.

  3. Klausner is a shill for the book industry (I still wonder if its all of them or just a couple of publishers.) I don’t have a problem with that – they are gaming the system I guess.

    I do wish there was a way to let people on Amazon all know about the fraud though.
