How To Read Amazon Review Graphs

Frustrated by a rising tide of paid book reviews on Amazon, Reddit user Onewatt created the chart embedded above–do you agree with the breakdown of reviews?

The chart has earned an eye-popping 127,000+ views online since it was first posted. They explained the chart simply: “After reading that 60% of amazon reviews are bought and paid for, this is how I read review graphs for books.”

The whole debate began when The New York Times explored the world of paid book reviews in a long article. In a follow-up post, we reminded readers that some major bestsellers have earned at least 150 one-star reviews on Amazon.
