    I'd say almost all the one star reviews are probably from people like you who wouldn't even like it if she wrote the next great epic.

    I think most reasonable people would prefer for a book's ratings to be based on the opinions of people who actually read the book, as opposed to internet trolls.

    I guess Hillary needs all the help she can get. Trump is right again, Amazon may very well have anti-Trust issues.

    So your complaint is that Amazon is deleting fake reviews written by people who didn't read the book?

    Do you ever actually contribute to threads or do you feel so badly about yourself and your life you have to constantly put others down? Never mind I answered my own question.

    "Amazon is rarely moved to delete reviews so publicly, although in November negative comments under a book by anti-Trump broadcaster Megyn Kelly appeared to be removed by the retailer."

    Sounds fair to me

    Hillary is Trump supporters punching bag for their frustration with Trump proving to be such an obnoxious failure in the white house

    Apparently the one-star reviews were where the garbage was written.

    "Few of the one-star reviews remain on the website, but reports and screengrabs show that reviewers used the space to criticise the former First Lady and spread conspiracy theories about her and Bill Clinton.

    One one-star review, which remains on the website at the time of writing, reads: "Read all the promotional excerpts, which combined come close to book length – pretty good novel. It is fiction, isn't it? Surely, someone is playing a joke."

    It's not just negative reviews that they're deleting.

    Personally I would hope that reasonable people would either read the book or not based on their own interest in the subject and the author rather than relying on the opinions of others to inform their reading choices.
