Harriet Klausner must be stopped

Who IS this woman? Anyone who reads romance and/or mystery has probably come across this familiar name in book reviews, mostly Amazon, but you can find her everywhere. Similar to a heat rash, and just as annoying!

Has this woman ever come across a written word that she didn’t LOVE? Has she ever given a bad review to a book? NEVER. Which makes me think that either:

a) She is not a real person, but a made up character created by publishers to peddle their books. Hollywood studios did this a couple of years ago before they got busted. They made up a critic that always gave rave reviews to their movies.

Or:

b) Harriet is a book pimp. She pushes bad books for the perks. I am outraged that someone would do this. Good books are sacred, for heaven’s sake! Good books are to be shared, talked about, and revered.

I know damn well Harriet hasn’t bought a book in years. I can just see the UPS truck delivering cases of books to her on a daily basis. That bitch. How dare she push bad books for her own personal profit?!?

Harriet Klauser has no credibility. She must be exposed for what she is, a book pushing whore. She must be made to cease. And when this parasite does stop... I want her fucking job.

There is always going to be a Harriet Klausner. Too many little fish in the Amazon pond who find it meaningful to be rated as Amazon's number one reviewer. The man at number two reputedly expends no small effort tearing Harriet down in his desperate bid to be number one.

Harriet is known for only reviewing books she likes. That being said, I agree that she likes way too much, and her reviews are essentially cover copy for books. No insights, no analysis, no informative criticism.

I don't even think she actually reads all those books, probably just the cover blurbs and a few pages here and there.

Her reviews bore me.

I want her job too.

Though to me this harriet woman is a nut case. If she actually does read all those books and writes a review for all of them, surely her family hasn't seen her in years,

You guys, this is hilarious! I can't believe people actually spend time to track the 'readings' (or 'non-readings') of this HK woman. For me, the most telling thing is that the link to her name (in the chat transcript) led straight to the Amazon front page). 'Nuff said.
