Peter Harris: Anorak’s Anorak On Amazon

by | 13th, November 2007

MEET Peter Harris, a 56-year-old bachelor from Leicester. He has written more than 5,000 reviews for Amazon, the online retailer.

His reviews have been approved by about 50,000 shoppers, making him their top reviewer. He is also just outside the top 10 reviewers on the retailer’s US website.

He said: “My original motivation was to champion obscure music acts, because I have quite eclectic tastes and like some very odd things, and it just grew from there…”

Mr Harris, whose hobbies include train spotting, writes his reviews at home, saves them on to a disc and sends them to Amazon using the internet connection at his local library.

If we had an Order Of The Anorak, we’d bestow it upon him…
