Barbara I agree... Goodreads should seriously consider a policy change. Any book considered for a "best list" should at least be available to the general public for one month. Advance copy reviews tend to be skewed in my opinion.
James I completely agree. Voting started before this book was published. The dates should be changed. I book should be out a week ( at the minimum) before voting starts to be considered a best book of the year.
Greg Joe, well, the reviews started 2 years ago, in December of 2015!!! That's earth time, that is. Who knows what moontime might be for Weir.
Nathan Barker Hundreds of advance review copies of this book were sent out by the publisher in several rounds prior to publication (some as early as 6 months prior I believe)
