If I have something to say about the book or story, I will frequently say it privately to the author. It might mean more that way. But I do write reviews and post them on my site, which automatically puts them on goodreads and facebook, but not Amazon. I don’t like starred reviews because the stars mean different things. 4 on goodreads is 5 on Amazon, and frequently they are padded. I know of one book put together by the company running a Facebook-like site, made up of the writings of the people who posted on that site that had 13 five star reviews. A quick click through them showed mostly names that were recognizable as being members of the staff and only one (1) of them was an Amazon Verified Purchase. Last I check, sales were lagging to the point they were giving to books away to hospitals and such. Bash what I hate? Not usually. I usually don’t finish it. One book I picked up died on the first page of adverbial overload.
