Amazon Confuses Bob Woodward For L. Ron Hubbard, Sending Reviews For Fear Tumbling - 2018-09-13
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.
