Clin­ton pub­lisher ques­tions re­views from Amazon users

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICKOFF -

NEW YORK » The pub­lisher of Hil­lary Clin­ton’s new book “What Hap­pened” is ques­tion­ing Amazon re­views posted within a day of the book’s re­lease. Pub­lished Tues­day, the book is Clin­ton’s retelling of her pres­i­den­tial elec­tion loss last year.

As of Wed­nes­day morn­ing, more than 1,500 re­views ap­peared on Amazon. Many con­tained lit­tle in­for­ma­tion about the book and in­stead of­fered high praise or sharp crit­i­cism of the Demo­cratic can­di­date.

Si­mon & Schus­ter pub­lisher Jonathan Karp tells The As­so­ci­ated Press: “It seems highly un­likely that ap­prox­i­mately 1,500 peo­ple read Hil­lary Clin­ton’s book overnight and came to the stark con­clu­sion that it is ei­ther bril­liant or aw­ful.”

He says Si­mon & Schus­ter hopes the on­line com­men­tary would re­flect opin­ions of peo­ple who have ac­tu­ally read the book.
