Misha Almira (MishaAlmira) | 1 comments There is a reviewer here that gives 1 stars without reading the book. Does anyone have thoughts on this? I think objective reviews are fair don't get me wrong. Any feedback is welcomed.

There are a number of reviewers here that give out one stars without having read the book, for a variety of reasons (a small sample was sufficient for them to develop an opinion, they use stars as a personal classification system of some kind, they are trying to manage their personal recommendations, they are offended by content, etc.) Any and all of these are permissible under GR TOS. I don't give out a lot of them, but quite frankly, if I give a book a one star, it's highly unlikely that I've read all of it.

Josh | 13 comments My approach: crowd source books based off star ratings AND reviews. Looking at ratings and reviews in context helps me decide if I'll read something. I ignore star ratings with no reviews (no matter the number) or with trite generic opinions. Even a well-crafted sentence or two might make me consider reading it.
