I was looking at today's Kindle Daily Deals, and one is Extinction Point by Paul Antony Jones:
I noticed that it had 569 Amazon reviews, which is a lot. Since I didn't recognize the title, I went to look it up on Goodreads to see what people were saying about it, and to my surprise Goodreads only has 547 ratings for it!
So among the avid Goodreads user base, less than 550 people have pushed the button to give it a star rating, but more than that many have taken the time to write a review on Amazon?!
Am I missing something here?!
Even if it was the author/publisher's marketing campaign, how the heck did they get 569 unique reviews? 100 I could understand, but 500 is crazy! Even if it was on the free Kindle list for months, that still doesn't net 500 reviews! Did they pay people to review it or something?
