Important: please see my apology in comment 12 below.
Someone recently sent me a book to review, following an exchange of emails in which I agreed to have it sent to me on condition that I wouldn’t be under any deadline to review it. The sender asked me to at least mention the book when I got it.
The “reviews” on the book’s back cover are rude, sarcastic, and obviously fake—this for a book by a Christian on a controversial doctrine.
I have now mentioned the book as requested. I have no interest in reading it: I have too many other books on my list that come with credible recommendations.
And I have no interest even in identifying the book: I don’t want my name included in the same company as the book’s fake reviews.
If the author wishes me to send it back, I can be reached by email. I will wait a week or so before I discard it.
