Darwin8u Don't vote for Roy Stolworthy's book 'Coming Home'.

If you notice, this self-published novel is ranked #10. However, upon deeper inspection you will also notice that he is doing quid pro quo reviews and rankings with other self-published authors. For example EVERY single vote he received was a #1 vote (really, not War and Peace?). Also, many of those who voted for his book ONLY voted for his book. Also many who voted for his book ALSO have books they are pimping. So, anyway, take it for what it is.

Here is the list of Roy's "Bad Behaving Author Friends":

1. John Hanley - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
2. Paul Cude - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
3. Dab10 - ranked Comign Home 1 of 1 - author of Karmic Krackers
4. Leonardo Ramirez - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
5. Danielle DeVor - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
6. Dianne Harman - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
7. Melodie Ramone - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
8. Elizabeth Marx - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
9. Karen Prince - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
10. Murielle Cyr - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
11. Janna Yeshanova - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
12. Jams N. Roses - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
13. Shane K.P. O'Neill - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.
14. Rhonda Patton/Chester McDaniel - ranked Coming Home 1 of 1 - self-published.

So, 14/16 votes are authors. Either Roy is a writer's writer, or this is obviously a way for these self=published authors to try and push up their books. Ugh.

But to be fair to Roy. There were two rating that didn't come from other Goodreads/Self-Published authors. One come from Emma Morris, who has apparently ONLY rated Roy's books (all 5 stars) and has no friends. The other rating comes from a 17 yo Norwegian kid who likes Dan Brown A LOT.

Well, back then you first needed to actually WRITE well and follow that up with killing yourself. You had me at Walker Percy, BTW.

Paul Bowes Checked for duplicates: 1 book removed.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed:

Jackboot Britain - setting, from blurb, is World War Two.


message 5: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes The current #1 book in this list, "The Trigger: Hunting the Assassin Who Brought the World to War", appears to have been spammed in. An unusually high proportion of its voters have voted it #1 in their lists and/or have only voted for a single book. This is a similar process to that described in Message #1, above, from 2014.

I do wish people would stop doing this. I don't know who they think they're kidding. And if Goodreads want these lists to be considered reliable, they need to stop this happening.

So do I.... (*sigh*) and you're absolutely right; it does make a list unreliable. But I'm afraid ending circle voting is like wishful thinking, unfortunately :-(

I absolutely love the list Darwin8u published! Well done!

Sounds like a problem, and glad you called it out. But War and Peace heading a list of WWI books would also be a problem. Tolstoy died in 1910, and his novel, written in 1869, is about the Napoleonic war.


message 9: by Mel (new)

Mel Foster #151 An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge and other stories portrays the US Civil War, not WWI.
#100 The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich has some connection to WWI I suppose. Hitler was a vet. There were some historical roots. But it's primarily about the interwar and WWII years.
I would remove the first but don't see how to do that now as a mere librarian.


message 10: by Sally (new)

Sally I have removed 151. As a librarian, you can remove a book by clicking (edit) after the list description at the top.

In this case:
Books concerning The Great War. (edit)

Ah! I needed to scroll down to "remove particular books." Thank you.
