So, I am currently currently trying to learn how to write by blurb for Kristol and looking at examples on Amazon, I of course couldn't help but check out the "reviews". Now, as I believe we have discussed in various threads about reviews and how 2 to 4 being more trustworthy as opposed to 1 and 5 stars, even 2 and 4 can be some what fringed with 3 being more or less trustworthy. anyways, so while looking at these book's blurbs, which were alright, some good some bad, I couldn't help but noticed that some of they had glowing 5-starred reviews with generic jargon and could have sworn I saw the same review on another book or something similarly written. Nothing about the book, what they liked or disliked. Now, I have received a few beta reviews, so I have a sense of the good, the bad the ugly... and they also let me know what they liked, disliked etc. and were specific (granted it's a beta review, so that's the point. ) but still, as much as I do distrust online reviews. I find it imperative to do it write and be honest, what you liked and what you didn't like. and overall if it was a good read. I.E. I read a blurb for one book, read the glowing reviews, and the first paragraph part was a snooze fest, something that was reflected by less than glowing reviews for the same book. So, I am aware that I am a real A-hole but am I that much of an A-Hole, that no blurbs impress me and the glowing reviews I saw seemed fake as shit. in other words am I that crazy!!!
