A mysterious (hilarious?) bug appeared to temporarily drag down the Amazon customer rating for Bob Woodward's new book about the Trump administration's first year in office.

On Wednesday, reviews on Amazon for the just-released Woodward book Fear became intermingled, somehow, with reviews for an L. Ron Hubbard novella by the same name. A significant number of the negative reviews attached to Woodward's book—orders for which have outpaced Amazon's supply—referenced the Church of Scientology founder's psychological thriller, as seen in the screenshot below:

"I found FEAR to be the biggest piece of garbage I have ever read," wrote one Amazon customer, who, while claiming not to be a Scientologist, swears he's no "Hubbard-hater" either. The review was one of dozens temporary coupled with Woodward's book on the website.
