I thought everyone assumed that Amazon reviews were by the publishers (Amazon reviewers brought to book).
I wouldn’t buy a used car from Lisa Jardine, if she really said this: “Professor Lisa Jardine, who was an adviser on the setting up of the site’s British edition, Amazon.co.uk, said she had no objection to Rechy, Eggers and other clandestine reviewers. ‘There’s nothing immoral about it. This is a marketing website. You might as well say putting your own stuff on e-Bay and plugging it is immoral.’ ”
