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.

Amazon says reviews are designed to help customers make purchase decisions and it’s not the company’s role to decide what customers would find helpful in reviews.
