One-Star Reviews of Asimov’s Foundation

I have a policy about judging books based on reviews: a well written positive review is a good sign, and a badly written negative review is also a good sign. To put it another way, if an idiot hates a book, I’ll probably like it.

That came back to mind yesterday. I’m reading Isaac Asimov’s science fiction classic Foundation right now, and I wanted to get some other perspectives on it, so I looked it up on Amazon.

Pretty sure I’ll love it. Check out some of the Einsteins who gave it one star.

“A sci-fi book on people who want to create an encyclopedia?” That sounds…awesome!

“like reading dozens of books each with its own characters and new plot” Again…awesome.

This was enlightening.

I love reviews that downgrade a book because their copy fell apart.
